About Archway Cookies, LLC
Founded in 1936 in Battle Creek, Michigan, Archway Cookies was a maker and distributor of branded and private label cookies, such as Salerno and Mother’s cookies. Archway Cookies struggled with the rise of raw ingredient cost. The company’s biggest draw is the variations of its original oatmeal cookie, accounting for 40% of sales. In addition to its oatmeal cookies, the company had a line of 60 varieties. Customers over the age of 50 were the primary market for the company. In the late 1980s, the company became more health-conscious and removed saturated fats from its products. Archway was sold to Specialty Foods in 1998, making them the third largest cookie baker in the US. At its peak, Archway employed 180 people.
Archway Cookies also operated as Mother’s Cake & Cookie Co, Mother’s Cookies, and Archway.
The former headquarters of Archway Cookies was located in Battle Creek, MI.
