Our Story

Arezou Founder of Zooies Cookies Los Angeles


founded with LOVE
Informed by a lifetime of training in the care of the human body and inspired by nurturing her own young family, Arezou Appel launched Zooies in 2013. A chiropractor, acupuncturist and herbologist by trade, her intimate knowledge of what helps and hurts our bodies led her to develop recipes for sweet treats whose ingredients are as good for the body as they are for the soul.

we put the GOOD in goodies
Each one of Zooies Goodies begins as a playful experiment in Arezou’s family kitchen using only the finest of ingredients that she finds good enough to feed her own family. Commercially-developed additives meant to preserve, maintain shelf life or ease production don’t have a place at her table and are never invited. Only the highest quality items are satisfactory for her family...and for you.

welcome to the FAMILY
Love, understanding and caring are the ingredients that make up a healthy family. Every delicious offering that makes its way across Zooies counter starts with each. 

We love to create items that will put a smile on your face.

We understand that everyone is different and has different needs.

We care that the ingredients are good for your body and are available to you.
