NoBaked Announces Expansion
A Nashville original, NoBaked Cookie Dough, has announced plans to expand throughout Nashville and beyond.
The cookie dough shop, reminiscent of a high-end ice creamery, opened their first location on West End in 2017 to a crowd lined up around the block.
Since then, NoBaked has expanded to a second location in Louisville and added a food truck for off-site events.
NoBaked has partnered with local commercial real estate company, The Cauble Group, to help oversee their corporate expansion in Nashville and franchise locations nationally.
The Story of NoBaked
The brain-child of Belmont alumna, Megan Beaven, NoBaked Cookie Dough was founded in early 2017.
Beaven took a tub of raw dough with vanilla wafers to a friend’s birthday party as a dessert dip and quickly realized how popular the treat could be.
Megan then put a website together, herself, to market her dough.
The site launched in April 2017 and it was off to the races.
About the Dough
You might be thinking, “isn’t raw dough unsafe to eat?”
And you wouldn’t be wrong.
However, NoBaked uses heat-treated flour and a proprietary, eggless recipe for their delicious dough.
Staple flavors include chocolate chip, confetti sugar, s’mores (my personal favorite).
NoBaked is also constantly experimenting with a rotating menu of special flavors.
And don’t worry if you can’t finish it all - the dough will keep in the fridge for 3 weeks or a freezer for three months.
Although you can bake also bake the dough, it’s meant to be eaten like ice cream.
The Ideal Space
Here are the parameters for a NoBaked Cookie Dough location:
