Felix’s Famous Cookies

When his grandma passed away, Felix honored her by starting a cookie business using her recipe and donating the proceeds to charity.

Mundelein, Illinois

The cookies proceeded to be a hit, as people kept asking for more. Where there’s a whisk there’s a way, and so together with his mom, he turned a hobby into a business. Now 11, he’s the youngest hispanic CEO in Illinois. Toni helped everybody, so Felix gives away his profits to many causes. Feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, suicide prevention. He picks a new charity every month. But his sweet determination is always the same.
