Jimmy’s Cookies Grand Opening
Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno joined Jimmy’s Cookies CEO, Howard Hirsch, for the grand opening of the company’s new facility in Clifton.

Trenton, NJ – Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno joined Jimmy’s Cookies CEO, Howard Hirsch, for the grand opening of the company’s new facility in Clifton.

“Jimmy’s Cookies had the choice to take their business out of state, and instead showed their confidence in our economy and decided to relocate to a larger facility right here in New Jersey,” said Lt. Governor Guadagno. “It is important decisions like this that will save 43 people from losing their jobs and create nearly 80 new quality manufacturing jobs.”

Jimmy’s Cookies, a gourmet cookie and cookie dough manufacturer, first opened more than 30 years ago in a tiny Hungarian bakery in Manhattan. The company eventually relocated to a 30,000 square-foot facility in Fair Lawn before relocating to its new nearly 90,000 square-foot facility in Clifton.
