I have another serving of cookie information to follow up the crumb of information that I teased in my weekend column.
A Crumbl Cookies shop is on the way to the Med City.
The gourmet cookie bakery has lined up space at 2665 Commerce Drive NW in the commercial center anchored by US Bank. It will be sandwiched between Ootori Sushi and Jersey Mike’s Subs, according to Crumbl Area Supervisor Jess Conard.
Two couples – Sharmaine and Brian Howell plus Christine and Mark Howell – will be the owners of the Rochester location.
The hope is to open this summer, possibly as soon as late June.
This will be the third Minnesota location. The Utah-based Crumbl, which describes itself as the “nation’s fastest growing gourmet cookie company” with almost 80 locations, already has shops in Apple Valley and Maple Grove.
It follows a premium bakery model, similar to Nothing Bundt Cake. Focus on a limited, but gourmet product line.
Each week, Crumbl’s menu rotates to feature four different specialty cookies. However, it always has its two big sellers, milk chocolate chip and chilled sugar cookies, available.
Some of the Crumbl specialty cookie flavors include Biscoff Lava, Funfetti, Coconut Lime, Chocolate Caramel, Cranberry Vanilla, Nutella Sea Salt, S’Mores, Orange Creamsicle, and more.
In addition to gourmet cookies, the shops offer a selection of premium ice cream flavors as well as a cold glass of milk to pair with the cookies.
