Founder of Famous Amos Cookies
Wally Amos is the genuine, ebullient and gregarious father of the gourmet chocolate chip cookie.
Additionally, he is an advocate for reading who believes that the recipe for ending illiteracy in America is to read to your child daily.
He is a motivational speaker who travels the world, and he is the author of nine inspiring books with love as the common ingredient.
“When I was 12, I moved from Florida to New York City to live with my aunt, Della Bryant. We certainly had no monetary wealth, but Aunt Della’s home was always rich in the principles and qualities vital to a child’s upbringing. And it was filled with the aroma of her superb chocolate chip cookies. It’s true that her basic recipe for cookies became the foundation of much of my success. But it was her recipes for life that sustain me to this day.”
Wally’s baking hobby led him to open the world’s first cookie store in Los Angeles in 1975. Today, decades later, he’s still in business at Chip & Cookie®, the only company baking from pure, unadulterated Wally Amos recipes.
Beginning in 1995, Wally and some extraordinary partners shifted the focus of another of his companies to target the market for a wide variety of high-quality, homemade style muffins. Uncle Wally’s now has a product range from deliciously indulgent to absolutely healthful muffins. And, with a big reputation for innovation, Uncle Wally’s® products are now available in over 10,000 stores, including some of the biggest names in food service and retailing. These merchants are quality driven, as are your clients.
