DOUGHP is growing up! We've got a small-but-mighty team dishing out their best work to make this fun and crazy delicious dessert a reality. Selling cookie dough together for a living? #squadgoals.
It's time to introduce you to the faces behind this ridiculously fun dessert shop! BONUS: Read on for a super exciting DOUGHP announcement and upcoming par-tayyy on August 9th!
Kelsey Witherow / FOUNDER + FEARLESS LEADER
Watcha doing? After ditching a 10-year career in tech, I followed my sweet tooth to open DOUGHP. These days I'm focused on growing the business, enabling partnerships, and helping to cultivate some seriously kick-a$$ professionals on my team. I may run the company, but I'm having waaaaay too much fun to call it a "job."
Rep your hometown: Dallas-born but raised just outside the Bay Area in Sacramento, CA! :)
Super Fun Fact: I can rap all of Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby” …and there may or may not be a choreographed dance to accompany that.
Cole Mayer / VP OPERATIONS
Whatcha doing? I handle operations both inside our storefronts (& new kiosk at AT&T Park) & outside with external catering/wholesale orders. Someone's gotta keep this show on the road!
Rep Your Hometown: Boulder, Colorado. It's a beautiful little town nestled up against the Rocky Mountains. I went to CU-Boulder and took the opportunity to move to San Francisco two and a half years ago!
Super Fun Fact: I love camping and being outdoors with friends. There's something special about getting out of the hustle and bustle of life for a few days and fully disconnect (and in turn connecting fully with the people you're in the wild with!). It's an amazing opportunity to reset your psyche.
Chris Ciszewski / BUSINESS DOUGHVELOPMENT
Watcha doing? Taking our wholesale business to a new DOUGHP level :)
Rep your hometown: I'm from Niagara Falls, the American side (you have to say that, cause people will always ask) I helped open and manage one of the first boutique hotels there.
Super fun fact: I'm actually a bit on the shorter side compared to friends; despite being 6"5, my other friends are 6"9 and 6"7. And i's rare if people DON'T ask if we we're athletes when we're out together. We joke that we're ex-hockey players, but truth is... all this tall-ness never really translated to any athletic prowess.
Cahner Olson / MARKETING LEAD & EXEC SIDEKICK
Watcha doing? I lead DOUGHP's marketing and catering coordination! Instagram is my game - I mean who doesn't love taking photos of (and then eating) cookie dough?!
Rep your hometown: I was born in Chicago but grew up in Omaha, Nebraska! I'm a midwestern girl through and through.
Super fun fact: I love to travel and will check off my 30th country by the end of this year!
Caitlin Russell / BRAND GURU
Watcha doing? I’m leading the DOUGHP for Hope road trip! We’re dishing out cookie dough and conversation for mental health at recovery centers, sober houses, and colleges down the West Coast.
Rep your hometown: Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. I grew up hanging at the mall, snacking on froyo, and listening to TLC.
Super fun fact: I quit my ad job at 23 and built artificial reefs in Thailand. I’m a certified advanced nitrox diver and obsessed with nudibranchs.
DOUGHP for Hope Launch Party
We're launching a new flavor called DOUGHP for Hope - a birthday cake cookie dough! Best part? 100% of the proceeds from it will go to a local non-profit!
The flavor launches in-store on August 2nd, but join us for a party with representatives from the three non-profits we're featuring this round! They'll be in store on August 9th 5-9pm to meet you all and share their mission.
Be sure to RSVP to the Facebook event here!
