CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A gourmet cookie company expects to open its first retail location in Findlay Market Saturday, only a week after taking over the space.
Queen City Cookies is a company that sells highly decorated gourmet cookies through stores around the country, but they have been looking for their own store for some time.
Their new space will be a small storefront at 124 Findlay Street in Findlay Market. It well sell cookies, plus one new product: schnecken. The German pastry is sold at a few places around Cincinnati, but usually only seasonally; Queen City plans to sell it year round. Items will be cooked at the existing Northside bakery.
Queen City Cookies only started work on the space last Friday, but owner Peggy Shannon didn't want to wait to open. No significant repairs or changes were needed to the building, except for the heating and cooling system.
