In 1986, Cookbook Publishers, Inc. was restructured as an employee-owned company. This employee-ownership has created a group of people who approach their own respective jobs as though Cookbook Publishers, Inc. were their own business–because it is!

We like to celebrate our past successes, but we also enthusiastically embrace the future and all of its possibilities. One thing remains constant, though…that same high commitment to quality service and products…our employee-owners will make sure of that!

And we had a vision …

… to provide this service and product on a national level.

Each and every one of our employee-owners understands that you, our customer, are the driving force in the success of our company … and that if you succeed, we succeed. For this reason, even though we print millions of cookbooks every year for thousands of families and organizations like yours, we will take special care and pride in helping to create your fundraising cookbook. Why? Because to you it’s not just a cookbook; it’s a collection of treasured recipes and memories that will be handed down for generations to come. To us it’s not just another job – it’s our livelihood!
