Kennadi’s Kookies is a business started by an 8-year-old Pueblo baker

On Tuesday, Dec. 20, 2022, Christopher Garcia and his 8-year-old daughter, Kennedy, bake a big batch of Kennedy's cookies at their home.

A small cottage business that started as a way for an 8-year-old to earn money for a new bike has made waves in the Pueblo baking scene, recently taking a top-three spot in the Best of Pueblo contest Have done

It all started last summer when Kennedy Garcia, a student at Villa Bella Expeditionary Elementary School, told her father, Christopher Garcia, that she wanted a new bike. He suggested they find a way to earn a little money to help pay for it.

“Kennedy and I have always enjoyed working in the kitchen together, so I suggested we bake cookies to sell to friends and family to make a little money,” Garcia recalled.

Through the power of social media, he began posting about Kennedy’s fund drive and “it really exploded,” he said. Before they knew it, he had $100 to pitch in for his new bike and the whole exercise “has now become a business,” he said.
