Our Mission: To spread happiness across the globe!
Yes, that is quite a lofty goal, but we plan to start small and work our way up. We start with the smiles on the faces of children when they eat a cookie or an ice cream cone. We also help our community through donations. In 2017, we donated to the USO, the Alexandria Jaycees, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, The Alexandria Police Foundation, and many others. We believe that there are many organizations in our community that help to bring happiness to others, and we help them when we can.

The year 2017 brought many changes to The Pretentious Gourmet. We started as a cookie company, but in 2017, we expanded into the ice cream and retail business by purchasing a shop in Occoquan, VA. At our store in Occoquan, we also sell dog treats from Fuzzy Paws Barkery, Gluten Free cookies from Dream of Goodies, fruit spreads from Papa's Market, and soaps and lipbalms from Tigersoap. And we plan on expanding this list.
