Charlie’s Cookies

Posted by Josette Dunn on 29th September 2010

The weather may still be cool, but the team at Charlie’s Cookies are already preparing for a warm spring and summer full of seriously delicious gourmet treats!

Charlie’s is a true Australian success story, run by Melbourne husband-and-wife team Ken Mahlab and Jacky Magid. Since 2004, former property developer Ken has transformed a much-loved local cookie shop into a boutique food service brand. Lawyer Jacky left behind the corporate rat race in 2007 to concentrate on tempting potential customers.


Charlie’s Cookies are already tantalising tastebuds in hotels, business centres, catered events and cafés. Now they’re also in selected retail outlets for consumers to take home and enjoy with a cool drink or while hitting the beach.

“We love dreaming up new ideas to help squeeze more indulgent moments out of every day,” says Jacky Magid. “Life’s short, so we never waste an opportunity to make every instant truly delectable.”
