Founded in 1989, Ann Clark, Ltd. has grown from a small gift company to the largest cookie cutter manufacturer in the country. The company annually makes millions of cookie cutters from its 16,300-square-foot facility off Quality Lane in Rutland Town and ships them to customers throughout the United States and Canada and worldwide.
Sales have grown considerably during the last few years as the company has extended its reach to wholesale customers that include thousands of gift shops and stores throughout the country and large retailers such as Sur La Table, Williams-Sonoma, Crate & Barrel, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Cost Plus Warehouse, Wegmans, and others. The company also has a promotional products segment that designs and sells custom cookie cutter shapes to corporations and colleges. And in 2015 Ann Clark, Ltd. launched a new Web site AnnClarkCookieCutters.com and also listed products on Amazon.com to sell directly to consumers online.
Founder Ann Clark is still active in the business. Her artistic flair and love for baking continues to provide value to the company’s product lines and marketing efforts. Her son, Ben, is the CEO. His background includes education and experience in engineering and marketing. Together they lead a team of dedicated employees who make up “The Cookie Cutter People from Vermont.”
