Queenstown’s Mrs Cookie Time


Sixteen years after starting as a receptionist with Cookie Time New Zealand, Verity Richard has moved to Queenstown as franchisee for its first new-concept retail store.

Richard, 37, was latterly the cookie company’s customer services and franchise support manager at its headquarters in Christchurch.

Cookie Time has invested a six-figure sum in Cookie Bar, which opens next Monday in the former Juice Bar premises in Camp Street.
