Tates Bake Shop
Whether you prefer soft and chewy or thin and crispy, chocolate chip cookies are a universal crowd-pleaser. It isn’t easy to create the ideal combo of rich chocolate chips to golden-brown cookie goodness, but Kathleen King knows a thing or two about delivering a world-class treat. After all, she’s been perfecting the art of baking since she was just a young girl. Today, King heads up Tate’s Bake Shop, a Hamptons-based bakery and nationally distributed cookie brand known for its crisp, buttery chocolate chip cookies (along with a selection of more beloved baked goods, including gluten-free options). But it’s not just the taste of the cookies that make Tate’s so special. The brand has a longstanding commitment to sourcing the best quality ingredients while avoiding preservatives and artificial ingredients that are found in so many packaged sweets. Here’s more on how this craveworthy brand is serving up one smart cookie.
The History of Tate’s Bake Shop
The roots of Tate’s Bake Shop go all the way back to when founder Kathleen King was just 11 years old and began baking and selling batches of chocolate chip cookies at her parents' Long Island farmstead. Then in 1980, King opened her first bake shop in Southampton, NY, offering a full line of baked goods made from scratch.
Tate’s Bake Shop Company Mission
Each of Tate’s delicious treats have one thing in common: a dedication to “the bake shop way.” This is a term the brand uses to describe its uncompromising commitment to quality and craft. The bake shop way is about nourishing the soul while delighting the world with exceptional taste experiences.
Benefits of Tate’s Bake Shop
Working closely with vendors and suppliers, Tate’s Bake Shop works hard to procure the freshest, finest ingredients for its award-winning, craft-baked desserts. The brand avoids preservatives and wants every baked good to taste as close to homemade as possible. As a result, Tate’s Bake Shop has been Voted the Best Bakery in the Hamptons year after year and its Gluten-Free Ginger Zinger cookie was awarded a Gold sofi award for Best Gluten-Free Cookie in 2015. Today, the shop is a destination for locals and tourists alike and the brand is internationally recognized and adored for its irresistibly crisp and buttery chocolate chip cookies.
