Five questions with Toni Cotopolis, co-owner of 4 Cookie Divas

After 28 years of teaching in Canton and other school districts in five states, Toni Cotopolis wasn’t interested in returning to the classroom.

Instead, she found a new passion in baking, specifically gourmet cookies. She and a partner launched 4 Cookie Divas, which went from being a hobby to a full-fledged business in 2008 when it joined the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce.

Her original partner left after a year for other endeavors. After 14 years in business, Cotopolis now has three part-time employees. 4 Cookie Divas is a home-based Canton business.

“With our specialized cutout cookies, we help promote businesses and individuals, assisting with their gift giving angst and celebrations,” said Cotopolis, who has a son Brian and a toy poodle named Cookie. “We only make one cookie, cutouts. Cookies are made to order and decorated by hand. No gimmicks or special tools. It is art on a cookie. Like an artist knows which brushes to use to get a certain effect, we have to know which decorating tips to use.”
