In the beginning there was just one small shop…
Cookery writer and chocoholic Helge Rubenstein opened the first Ben’s Cookies shop in Oxford’s Covered Market (England) in 1984, with her son Ben as our logo. That’s him drawn by good friend and renowned Illustrator, Sir Quentin Blake.
This shop, with our simple cookie outlook, is still going strong today. So is our business, with new shops appearing in select locations in England and around the world.
We believe if we make a really good cookie, customers will keep coming back, so every day, we do the best we can to make something that people love.
