My Story

Melvin Leland

Chef and Owner of Grins and Giggles Cookie Co. 

It  all started in my mom’s kitchen with her saying, “you’re gonna know how to take care of yourself when you get older.” This was at age 5, and at such an impactful time in my life; it stuck and I have had a love for food ever since. 

Thanks to her early intervention and the need to keep a curious 5 year old busy, I was able to explore the kitchen and find my niche. 

Grins and Giggles Cookie Co was born out of a favor for a friend and has grown into a passion. A passion for innovation, creation, and quality. I strive to develop new flavors and add an elevated twist to the classics.
