FROM HOUSEKEEPER TO COOKIE CHEF
Julia, the mastermind behind Amazing Spaces, is all about making a positive impact on the world. She’s passionate about empowering peeps who haven’t had the best shot at life and helping them unlock their full potential. Now, let’s rewind to where it all started – in Julia’s office kitchen.
In that cozy little space, Mama Bongi (a.k.a. the lunchtime magician) would whip up mouthwatering lunches for the Amazing Spaces team. But Mama’s culinary talents didn’t stop there. With a little help from Hayley, their super-savvy General Manager and a baking enthusiast, the duo decided to surprise their clients with batches of irresistible chocolate chip cookies.
Naturally, everyone who tasted these incredible treats couldn’t resist asking, “Where can we buy these magical chunky choc chip cookies?” And just like that, the brilliant idea of Mama Bongi’s Cookies was born!
At first, Mama tackled the baking and packaging all on her own, while still working her magic at Amazing Spaces. Their cookies made their debut in a few local delis, and her clients loved them! But it wasn’t until lockdown hit that things really started to heat up.
