On Tuesday, December 12th, Christopher Garcia and his 8-year-old daughter Kennedi prepared a large batch of Kennadi's Kookies at their home.  20th, 2022.

A small family workshop that started out as an 8-year-old earning money for a new bike has made waves in the pueblo baking world, earning a top-three finish in a recent Best of Pueblo competition.

It all started last summer when Kennedy Garcia, a student at Villabella Expedition Elementary School, told her father, Christopher Garcia, that she wanted a new bike. He suggested they find a way for her to earn some money to cover the cost.

“Kennady and I always loved working in the kitchen together, so I suggested that we make cookies to sell to friends and family and make a little money,” recalls Garcia.

Harnessing the power of social media, he began posting about Kennedy’s fundraising, and “it really blew up,” he said. Before they knew it, she had $100 to throw at her new bike, and the whole event “became a business now,” he said.
