America’s Fastest Growing Cookie Company Opening Second Evansville Location
If you take a look at the Crumbl Cookies map, it's pretty obvious that the big cities love cookies. Now, Evansville is stepping up to the cookie box with not one, but two Crumbl Cookie locations.
Opening Day Part One
I can say that I was there the day the first Evansville Crumbl Cookies location opened on South Burkhardt in 2021. The line stretched around the building nearly every day for weeks. Once I had the opportunity to try the warm, unique cookies, I could see why they are so popular.
Popular Gourmet Cookie Shop Opens Second Evansville Location
Why in the world do we need another cookie shop in Evansville? This question actually made me LOL. If you have ever driven from the West Side of Evansville to the East Side (Or visa versa) simply for a food craving, then you understand the importance of two Crumbl Cookie locations.
Social Media Food Fight
Let's face it. Not everyone is a fan of cookies or locally-owned businesses. Some of the loudest comments on social media are usually on news sites. Allow me to share this little exchange from the 14 News Facebook page:
“Man, Evansville really needs another cookie store! Maybe add another cake/cupcakes shop. And while we're at it let us promote doughnuts and ice cream.” - Rhonda Burkholder Kutlich “West side doesn’t have cookie stores, Rhonda.” - Laura Fisher “Laura, Oh, oh, oh, y'all need cookie stores!” - Rhonda “Rhonda, We do need a cookie store. I love cookies. So do all my friends. We’re all getting together to celebrate this store opening. My place at 6, you’re welcome to come if you show up with a better attitude and a stomach ready for cookies. We will also be having burgers and brats if you truly don’t like cookies, but Crumbl does it for me!” - Laura “Laura, Thanks, I'll pass. My attitude is spot on.” - Rhonda “I think maybe she needs a hug and a cookie is like a hug from food right?” - Tommie Lynnette Childers
