Cookie Time is a loved brand in New Zealand for nearly 40 years and we are thrilled that guest, Jason Allen, is on the show with us to share his insights into bringing an iconic Kiwi brand to Japan. As Kiwis far from home, being able to reconnect with New Zealand by finding a Cookie Time in a huge chain store in Japan really has been a gift through these last few years of not being able to get back to New Zealand. Jason is very transparent about exactly how it all happened, so go listen!
