Aaliyah said it best: “age ain’t nothing but a number.” The 90s lyric classic could not ring more true for 10-year-old Cory Nieves.

As the CEO of Mr. Cory’s Cookies, the young entrepreneur has quickly become a national sensation as many have taken a liking into not only his business, but his growing celebrity.


Nieves’ business savvy started back in 2009 when he began selling hot cocoa, lemonade and cookies from a stand in Englewood, New Jersey, according to the New York Daily News.


Fast forward five years and the youngster’s all-natural cookies can be seen around markets and events in New Jersey and New York. More recently, the Mr. Cory’s Cookies brought a pop-up shop to Chelsea in NYC, and will soon bring his tasty treats online for sale.


“They are made with love,” Mr. Cory said to the Daily News. “They look scrumptious and they make your mouth water.”


As if his cookies aren’t enough to rave about, the little businessman is also turning heads for his fashion. On Instagram, Nieves shows off his preppy style to his more than 24,000 followers.

“I love because of the colors and the nice presentation,” he said.


His favorite brands and designers, he says, include J. Crew, Ralph Lauren and Tom Ford.


But Nieves’ career goes beyond cookie retail and Instagram fame. He’s also taking a stab at acting and modeling. In fact, he was featured in a Pillsbury commercial in 2012.


Talk about young success!
