When I would survey the variety of delicious mobile-food options that Columbia has to offer, I always saw a glaring omission: we didn’t have a cookie dough truck!
Cookie dough is my ultimate dessert weakness. I would choose it over almost any bougie treat you could imagine – I absolutely LOVE cookie dough. Well, imagine my excitement when I learned about Sweet Dreams Edible Cookie Dough Company!
I was able to chat with the owners, and here’s what they had to say about launching this delicious new business:
“I think it’s safe to say that we can thank this pandemic for the light bulb idea of mixing a food trailer with a sweet treat,” Shared the owner, a mom based in Lexington. “At the beginning of April we were noticing in our own neighborhood that there were food trucks almost every single day and we were saying to ourselves, ‘Wow, this sure is a great time to own a food truck!'”
The husband and wife team then launched a secret mission to research and learn everything they could about tapping into the food truck business. When they noticed that the Midlands didn’t have an edible cookie dough option, they struck gold!
“The first thing Collen (my husband) bought was a regular trailer with the plans of installing a window. Flash forward a few weeks and we have a window! After a few more renovations, the cookie dough trailer is ready to go and serve our people! Since launching our business on social media on June 30, we booked the entire month of July and most of August in less than 48 hours. To say we are overwhelmed is an understatement, but when we take a step back we can only appreciate how blessed we are. We had no idea it would blow up the way it has!”
You can find Sweet Dreams making the rounds at local neighborhoods all over the Midlands this summer. Follow their Facebook page for the most up-to-date info on where to find them!
