It seems like just yesterday that the Kalix cookie bakery business was formed, but it was the early 1990’s when our then CEO, Owen H. Larson, commented on the quality of cookies served at a local bank branch. Knowing that Kalix could do better, he saw an opportunity to meet the needs of local businesses and provide jobs for people with disabilities.
Kalix (MVAW at the time) started rolling fresh baked cookies out to businesses and the public for pickup and delivery. The bakery has baked thousands of cookies, employed many, and given the opportunity to build new relationships in the Minot area. A delicious tale, if we do say so ourselves.
