The Crumbl Cookies franchise is making Central Arkansas a little sweeter with three stores scheduled to open throughout the area this spring.
The first Crumbl Cookies franchise in Arkansas opened in Bentonville in 2020. The bakery was founded in 2017 in Logan, Utah, and now has more than 300 bakeries in 36 states and is the fastest growing cookie chain in the nation.
Crumbl Cookies stores feature an open kitchen where customers can watch the cookies being made from scratch. The cookies are usually served warm, fresh from the oven, with the option to add a scoop of ice cream. Crumbl cookies are large and feature icing, toppings, or both and are packaged in signature pink boxes by the 4-, 6- or 12-count. Stores are typically open Monday through Saturday.
Benton will welcome the first Central Arkansas location with a grand opening event this Friday, Feb. 25 from 8 a.m. until midnight at Hurricane Creek Village shopping center at I-30 & Alcoa Road. A location in the Lewis Crossing shopping center in Conway has a tentative opening date of late March, and a grand opening for a West Little Rock location in the Pleasant Ridge Shopping Center is scheduled for April.
Kelley Commercial Partners agents, Brooke Miller and Brandon Sheard, represented Crumbl Cookies in site selections in Central Arkansas and worked with Pleasant Ridge landlord representative, The Hathaway Group.
