Cookies and Cones is an American-style AWARD WINNING dessert company established in 2018 to bring a new flavour to Essex with our hand made small batch gelato and instagrammable bakery products. We opened our first store in Leigh-on-Sea and since then have opened a number of sites throughout Essex and the South East.

Matt Davis the owner had a vision to revolutionise the UK dessert industry. With the help of his team, he has worked hard to create unique recipes using the best ingredients we can source and keeping ahead of the current trends.

Since starting in 2018 with just two saturday workers, Cookies and Cones now employs over 80 people within the local communities of our stores and HQ.
