Crumbl Cookies to open Federal Way store in early June

A weekly rotating menu of gourmet, fresh-baked cookies to be available soon.

Are you ready to Crumbl? Crumbl Cookies is opening soon in Federal Way.

Known for their gourmet, fresh-basked cookies, Crumbl Cookies offers a rotating weekly menu of flavors to keep customers — and their taste buds — coming back for another bite.

Crumbl Cookies Federal Way (1812 S. 320th St., Suite B) is set to open by early June, said franchise owner TJ Adams. Dates of the exact launch and grand opening weekend festivities, which include a free cookie day, will be announced in the coming weeks.

The Federal Way franchise owners include Cole and Emily Baldwin, Cameron and Danielle Rounds, and TJ and Brittany Adams. The trio of business partners are also longtime friends who grew up knowing the original Crumbl Cookies founders in Utah.

“We kind of got a front row seat to its inception and how it just took off in Utah,” said Baldwin, the director of operations for Federal Way’s incoming location. Crumbl Cookies opened its first store in 2017.

Crumbl Cookies aims to bring people together around their famous pink boxes of sweet treats. The mindset centered on families and friends, and made for an easy decision in selecting Federal Way as their next move, Adams said.

“I can’t tell you how many times we’ve heard, ‘when are you coming to Federal Way?’” said 31-year-old Adams, adding that the city has a healthy blend of loyal customers who visit other stores to get their sugar rush and many more soon-to-be fans who haven’t yet tasted the Crumbl delights.

The trio also own the Crumbl Cookies store in Covington, which opened in October 2020, and was the first franchise location in Washington. Hundreds of cookies are sold weekly, and the Covington location has been selected by headquarters as one of the few sites across the nation to taste-test a new secret flavor starting the week of April 19, Baldwin said.

Customers looking to try out the new cookie flavor must visit the store in person to help provide Crumbl feedback for future recipes.

In the rotating lineup, six cookie flavors are available each week with Milk Chocolate Chip and Chilled Sugar as the menu anchors. Flavors range from Banana Bread and Cotton Candy to S’mores and Strawberry Pop-tart (Adams’ and Baldwin’s favorites, respectively) with many other mouth-watering creations in between.

The Federal Way location is set to employee about 45 individuals. Gourmet cookies will be available available for purchase in singles or in packs of four, six and 12 via pickup, delivery and catering.
