Lara Adekoya, a 28-year old Black woman entrepreneur from Los Angeles, launched Fleurs et Sel, a cookie company last year after being laid off from her job due to the pandemic.

Now just one year later, her cookies are some of the most sought-after by Hollywood stars and clients from all over the world. Lara worked at Nordstrom at the Grove as a salesperson for designer shoes since 2015. She had a successful career and became one of the best employees at Nordstrom. However, like many people, Lara was one of those who had to realign her goals due to the pandemic.

When she was furloughed from her job, she realized her passion for baking. She started baking sea salt chocolate chip cookies as a hobby and shares it on social media. She sends cookies to her friends and loyal customers from Nordstrom as a way to reconnect and make things a bit sweeter during quarantine.

Eventually, she decided to turn it into a business. Little did she know that the connections she had made in her previous job would help leverage her business. Some of her previous clients were the first to buy cookies and even helped in promoting the brand further.
