Owner & Operator
A Note from Nina
“I grew up in Chicago and always loved the incredible food that the Windy City had to offer. When I relocated to Akron, I found myself visiting Chicago often to satisfy my craving for all my favorite foods.
When traveling became too much, I started preparing some of those staple foods for my family and friends. As the demand for my food grew (especially for my pans of rib tips), the decision to become a business owner ignited and Cookie’s BBQ was born.
My entrepreneurship journey began by attending programs to learn the tools of becoming a business owner. Then, I continued to network with fellow business owners in the community. Finally, my confidence had grown enough to take my idea and make it a reality.
My vision is to bring the Windy City to Akron with Flavor and Flare: Chicago Style. My menu offers many of Chicago’s signature staples and so much more.“
