At the age of 13, Johnathon Bush started Not Just Cookies. As a young entrepreneur and passionate baker, NJC focused on providing delicious, quality baked goods the right way. This spirit of “baking hustle” carries on today and is what makes Not Just Cookies Wholesale Bakery a different kind of bakery. Joy Bush, Johnathon’s sister a new owner/partner is continuing that home baked goodness, starting with natural ingredients and using traditional baking stones, our focus on quality is baked into everything we make. We invite you to come in, say hello and enjoy a cookie... or two. You’ve earned it.
