Wally Amos, once known as “famous” and now called The Cookie Kahuna, “Caretaker of the TASTE,” lives by the motto, “Be positive anyway.” So far it’s working for him, and he’ll tell how at the Friday, Feb. 27 Outlook Conference at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster.

To make a long story short, Wally Amos was a William Morris Agency talent agent who took his Auntie’s recipe for homemade, from scratch, chocolate chip cookies, opened the world’s first gourmet cookie store in Los Angeles in 1975, and became a famous figure in American culture. He is the founder of the Famous Amos® chocolate chip cookie brand, although he lost his right to use his name in a corporate takeover after selling stock to finance rapid expansion.

But Wally didn’t worry. He wrote about his experiences, authored ten books, went on the inspirational speakers’ circuit, became a tireless advocate for childhood and adult literacy, and started a successful new company, The Cookie Kahuna, using his original ingredients and techniques, but selling the products online, http://www.thecookiekahuna.com, and in boutique gourmet stores in Honolulu, Hawaii. He has made his primary home in Hawaii for the past four decades.
