# Ep:28 3 Lessons To Learn From Crumbl Cookies (even though they use box mix)

Recently Crumbl Cookies was in the news as a Tik-Toker visited their store and noticed that they use box mix for their ingredients. While I love a good box mix, I understand how people can presume because you charge a certain price that maybe you bake from scratch even when you don't. However, regardless of if you are team box mix or not, my take is that it doesn't matter what you use just as long as you make a profit while making your customers happy.So rather than jumping on the bashing bandwagon(because that's not what Baking For Business is about!) I thought we can look at what lessons we can learn from Crumbl regardless of the fact that they use a box. Because at the end of the day they have an amazing recipe for success and that is something we can all use more of.In this episode we will learn:How to view a problem from a different lensWhat 3 components make Crumbl successfulWhat lessons we can learn from Crumbl How to approach negativity in our business and much moreBusines FREEBIES:Grab my FREE resource guide and get 30 plus resources to level-up your home bakery business click here to grab my FREE guide and get more tips from me every week.http://bit.ly/bakersresourcesAre we friends on Instagram?
