The people of Albany now have local access to the sweet, sugary goodness of Crumbl Cookies, 2504 Santiam Highway SE. The cookie chain’s soft opening in Albany is Thursday, June 16, followed by a grand opening Friday.
“The people of Albany have been excited about it,” said Austin Tews, who co-owns the store with his wife, Karina Tews. “We’re trying to spread Crumbl Cookies everywhere.”
The Albany location is the Tews’ fourth store, with a Bend location opening later this summer. Crumbl Cookies opened October 2021 in Corvallis, and Tews said that location has been successful thanks to loyal, cookie-loving college students.
The Tews also own Crumbl stores in Eugene and Roseburg.
The franchise started in Logan, Utah, in 2017, and there are now hundreds of stores nationwide. The business has a rotating menu, with five new flavors announced on their website, www.crumblcookies.com, each week. The popular milk chocolate chip cookie has a permanent spot on the menu, however.
