In Lake Charles, a local man is stirring up quite the delicious storm. Meet Taylor Gagneaux, the mastermind behind Dough2Gough, a local cookie company that’s taking the art of cookie baking to a whole new level. With literally thousands of mouthwatering options for customization, Dough2Gough is redefining the way we savor these sweet treats.
Taylor’s journey into the realm of cookies from his professional real estate background may seem like an unusual one, but it’s a testament to the power of passion and the allure of creating something truly unique. “By trade, I’m a realtor but I have a true passion for baking,” he says. “I’ve spent a lot of time refining my recipes to bake the perfect cookie each time. The investment of my time is worth it when I see satisfied customers with their masterpiece.”
In April of this year, Taylor’s dream became a reality with the launch of Dough2Gough. Calling the idea a dream is no cliché, the idea actually came to Taylor in a deep sleep. “I tell the story often and it may seem silly, but I really did dream this idea up,” he says. “I woke up from a dead sleep and typed the words customizable cookie company into a Notes app on my phone. It took off from there!”
What sets Dough2Gough apart is its revolutionary concept of complete customization. Customers can choose from an extensive menu of flavors, add-ins, and count of their cookie order, resulting in a staggering 223,000 possible combinations. It’s a cookie lover’s paradise where you can have your cookie exactly the way you want it. The concept behind Dough2Gough is simple yet brilliant. Taylor believes that the perfect cookie should be a reflection of the individual enjoying it. “Cookies are personal,” he says. “Why settle for mass-produced options when you can have a cookie tailor-made just for you?”
And tailor-made they are. Imagine crafting a cookie with flavors that evoke childhood memories, adding in your favorite nuts, chocolates, or even a sprinkle of sea salt. With half a dozen, a dozen, and two dozen ordering options, you can indulge on occasion or stock up! At Dough2Gough, the possibilities are endless.
Though, the beauty of Taylor’s customizable cookies extends beyond personal indulgence. It’s a concept that lends itself perfectly to branding, special occasions, and celebrations. Want to surprise a loved one with a unique gift? Why not name a cookie after them? Planning a wedding or a birthday party? Let Dough2Gough create cookies that perfectly match your theme. The options are limited only by your imagination.
For Taylor, every cookie is a work of art, and it shows in the meticulous attention to detail that goes into crafting each batch. “Quality is paramount for us,” he emphasizes. “We source the finest ingredients, and every cookie is made with love and care.”
Dough2Gough offers two ways to enjoy their creations. Customers can opt to purchase frozen dough, allowing them to bake these heavenly treats in the comfort of their own homes. This option not only guarantees the freshest cookies imaginable but also allows you to cook as much or as little as you’d like. Alternatively, you can request your order to be baked prior to pick up.
In just a few short months, Dough2Gough has garnered a dedicated following of cookie connoisseurs who appreciate the art of customization. “We’re not just selling cookies,” he says. “We’re creating experiences and memories, one cookie at a time.” The success is a testament to the power of passion and the idea that dreams can become reality with dedication and creativity.
