Urban Cookies Bakeshop Expanding to New Location, Offering Free Cookies on April 1

Urban Cookies Bakeshop, a Phoenix-based gourmet bakery established in 2005 and proud Local First Arizona member, is expanding its operations with a move to a larger building on 7th Street. The bakery will close its current location on Thursday, March 30 at 6 p.m. in preparation for an opening day Saturday, April 1 in its new digs south of Thomas on 7th St. at 2325 N. 7th St., Phoenix, AZ 85006.

This is the kind of opportunity we’ve only dreamed about. Our beautiful new space will provide an opportunity for more baking production, expanding our menu, seating for customers, great visibility on 7th St., and lots of parking.
— Shaun Breese, Co-owner of Urban Cookies Bakeshop

The bakery will occupy 2,500 square feet in three suites at the Sheridan Place plaza, a mid-century cluster of buildings, currently housing Humble Pie, The Main Ingredient Ale House & Cafe, and Sutra Midtown Yoga. The bakery’s move to this location was made possible after two current tenants made plans to close and relocate. The Artisan Guild closed March 1 to focus on its non-profit school initiatives, and The Pile Hole plans to relocate to north Phoenix and will have its last day in its current spot Sunday, March 27.

Winning Food Network’s Cupcake Wars in 2011 changed the trajectory of our business and we see this move as a similar growth opportunity, with expanding our menu as our top priority”, said co-owner, Brady Breese. “We’ve already developed new donuts and cookies for the new space, we’ve begun meeting with local coffee roasters to offer espresso, and we’re excited to launch some fun weekend specials like cinnamon rolls and pie.

Customers are encouraged to stop by for the bakery’s opening day celebration on April 1, which will include music, free cookies and free t-shirts for the first five fans. Between now and March 30, customers can also stop by the bakery’s current location at 4711 N. 7th St. to sign its well-wishes wall. The building is set to be torn down in April for redevelopment.
