A vegan cookie company in San Diego has experienced close to a 10,000 percent rise in sales amid support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
The founder of Maya’s Cookies — Maya Madsen — reported that sales shot up to 2,000 orders a day as support has grown for Black-owned businesses.
“Support Black Communities”
“With the horrific death of George Floyd, we have all witnessed this awakening in America of people finally ready to take action to address racial inequality and injustice,” said Madsen.
“There has been this incredible surge of people wanting to do something to support Black communities and specifically Black-owned businesses.”
The company has now hired new staff to help meet demand, and increased the size of its kitchen, as well as opening a new warehouse and shipping facility.
