Well, sometimes you just need a cookie. But you're in college during exam week and you just can't go to the store ... who you gonna call? The Secret Cookie Service, of course:
A UCSD grad student has traded in his lab coat for an apron and sunglasses.
The young man now known as "Agent Snickerdoodle" started a "secret cookie service" in which hungry UCSD students simply text or call him requesting his famous cookies. He gives them a CETA (Cookie Estimated Time of Arrival, of course) and then then delivers them in disguise.
Snickerdoodle dropped out of his PhD chemistry program at UCSD last year to start his cookie service. Now, his business is thriving on the campus where he once studied.
"It was terrifying leaving the program," Snickerdoodle said. "I think a lot of people kind of looked down on it, like 'what am I doing?' And literally said I was nuts doing it."
That was why he donned the disguise to begin with, he said. He and his partner dress in dark suits and ties with dark sunglasses.
"It was really a secret from everyone who knew me."
But more than a disguise from criticism, the tactic is a unique entrepreneurial touch.
