MugBuddyCookies was established June 2015 in the founder’s hometown of


Biddeford, Maine. Our mission is to connect people through the sharing of


Mug Buddies. For us, that means nurturing our connections with you, our team,


our community, and the environment. Over the course of this last year, the


importance of these kinds of connections has really hit home. Here are some


 of the changes we’ve undertaken in front of and behind the scenes:

- We choose local businesses for 75% of our packaging materials; the rest comes from US suppliers.


- We prioritize eco-friendly packaging materials, like our awesome yellow Mug Buddy recyclable tape


with our subscription boxes!

- We choose local & regional producers for cookie ingredients whenever possible.

- We reduce our waste by recycling, composting (so many eggshells), and repurposing equipment.

- We donate to shelters, food banks, and local farmers those Mug Buddies that “haven’t found their mug” at the


end of a season.

- We increased wages making strides toward our goal of livable wages for the entire team by 2023.

Your support is part of what makes achieving this vision possible. We are proud to create the Mug Buddies you


love, and we hope that knowing a bit more about our efforts toward strengthening our connections makes


sharing Mug Buddies that much more special.

Märgen Soliman, Owner

Märgen Soliman, a Biddeford native, has returned to her hometown to


embark on one of her greatest adventures to date. Märgen has always


had a passion for creative endeavors, from singing and acting to


decorating Ukranian Eggs every spring. During the winter of 2013,


Märgen designed some personalized Mug Buddy miniature houses with


the hopes of surprising friends and family with an original, handcrafted


gift. The delight these cookies brought to her loved ones inspired Märgen


to start MugBuddyCookies, so that she could share Mug Buddies with so


many more. Outside of cookies, Märgen also loves the great outdoors,


cycling, and performing on the stage.
