about GJ Cookies
Gimmee Jimmy’s cookie bakery opened its doors in 1983, making freshly baked cookies and delivering them in cookie tins. The founder, Jimmy Libman, deaf from birth, but never handicapped by any physical obstacles, grew his bakery from a niche shop serving real estate agents, car dealers, bankers and fine dining establishments of the New York City into an online e-commerce business offering worldwide delivery of artisanal baked goods made from natural ingredients daily at the original NYC location.
Prior to 2014, Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies (GJ Cookies) website was based on Yahoo’s Bigcommerce platform – a good choice for an e-commerce novice with many common features already “baked in”. Paradoxically, the very many features made the website management process complex and had lent themselves to be customized for the very specific business processes: customers often order baked goods in advance, but the products must be baked just before shipping.
Organizing the bakery production schedule had long been a manual process that the new website version was called to address. The new version of the GJ Cookies website was called to deliver the missing functionality without compromising any legacy order scheduling, delivery and payment features.
Maven was recommended by one of our past clients to discuss how the very specific non-standard features could be added to the online store while simplifying the overall administrative complexity. We recommended a solution based on the Magento Community Edition platform, customized with only the extensions that would be in actual use.
We created custom wireframes, UX design architecture and the project plan, which was approved and the brand new website was ready in less than two months. Some of the product features we added were a spreadsheet-based product import and export and the Sellercloud extension, allowing syndication on multiple marketplaces.

Product Manager at Printkick Ltd
When we looked at Maven as part of our selection process and had our first meeting, it was clear that you were the best fit for our company. We looked for people who cared about the project, the mission and had the technical skills to bring it all together. You made us confident we could do it. At times during the project, I was worried. Had we attempted too much in one go? Everything seemed even more complicated than when we had our meeting a year ago in Kiev. Lots of things started breaking. Thankfully, each time we hit this point, it only took a few calls to get back on track and under control. Honesty, compromise, and pragmatism are some of the key factors I have found in completing successful projects, and we made the right choice because these are your values too.why our clients choose us
