Southfield (CW50) – Lauren Roumayah grew up in a house full of cooking and baking. Constantly surrounded by the food and desserts, baking became her passion. After attending high school, she went to college closer to the city. Finding a love for the food throughout Detroit, she began infusing Detroit flavors into her baking, using her classmates as taste testers. She founded Detroit Cookie Co. to deliver outside the box flavors in cookies to the people of Detroit and continues to grow the company every year.
