New York City’s renowned Levain Bakery has had a busy year so far, opening a location in Brooklyn and planning a location for Washington, D.C. That business expansion continues this fall, when Levain’s famous six-ounce cookies will be available in supermarkets.
In September, the cookies will be sold at Texas-based grocery chain Central Market. They will be available in four flavors – chocolate chip walnut, two-chip chocolate chip, dark chocolate peanut butter and oatmeal raisin – each costing around $8 for a box of eight 2-oz. cookies.
As opposed to other cookie brands, Levain’s cookies will be found in pre-shaped cookie dough in the freezer section.
“Frozen provides the most consistent and salient experience,” Rachel Porges, the company’s chief marketing officer, tells Bloomberg. “We have yet to find a shelf-stable process that could deliver that for our cookie.”
For those who don’t live in Texas, there may still be opportunities to get Levain’s products in the future. The bakery is planning on further expansion at additional supermarkets.
