Crumbl Cookies’ grand opening today
Southwest Florida is getting its second Crumbl Cookies restaurant.
Located at 1519 N.E. Pine Island Road, Suite 150, the cookie delivery and takeout company will join First Watch, Mission BBQ, Firehouse Subs, PJ’s Coffee, Love Boat Ice Cream, Encore Nail Spa, Paragon Healthcare and Tire Kingdom Service Centers.
Crumbl will be handing out free cookie cards to the first 40 people who show up and request it.
Customers can order in-person during the first five business days of today’s 8 a.m. grand opening. Starting on March 22, delivery, curbside pickup, catering and nationwide shipping will be available.
The grand opening week menu will feature six of the more than 275 rotating flavors, including the award-winning Milk Chocolate Chip.
Some of Crumbl’s specialty flavors include Cornbread, Cookies & Cream, S’mores, Key Lime Pie, Peppermint Bark, Caramel Popcorn, Buttermilk Pancake and Galaxy Brownie.
The weekly menu drops Sundays at 6 p.m. on Crumbl’s social media accounts.
Crumbl Cookies was founded five years ago in Utah and already has nearly 500 locations nationwide.
The shop offers orders of single cookies, four-packs, six-packs and party packs with a dozen cookies.
The Cape Coral location is owned by Scott, Kathleen, Tanner and Anne Olson, along with Bruce Woodruff.
“We’re really excited to open the doors in the Cape,” Tanner Olson said. “We feel like the community is really ready for something like this. There are so many more families in the Cape now and the timing is perfect.”
All of the cookies are baked from scratch.
“Every cookie we serve is perfect,” Olson said. “In every one of them, the dough was mixed, frosting was prepared and toppings were put on by hand. When a customer receives a cookie, it looks as advertised.”
They also just taste really good.
Some cookies are served warm and others are served chilled, but they’re always fresh.
Olson anticipates that the Mallow Cream will be really popular.
Inspired by Lucky Charms cereal, the cookie features vanilla marshmallow frosting and Lucky Charms marshmallows sprinkled on top.
The Mint Brownie is also suspected to be a local favorite.
Then there is the mystery cookie, which comes out once a month, and it just so happens that Crumbl is opening on a mystery cookie weekend.
“You’ll see what that is when you come into the store,” Olson said.
No matter what you choose, you really can’t go wrong. And you may need to try them all, you know, just to be sure.
“It’s all about bringing friends and family together over a box of cookies,” Olson said. “These cookies can make someone’s day, make someone smile and make someone happy.”
