C. Krueger’s Finest Baked Goods Now Open in the Short North
C. Krueger’s Finest Baked Goods has opened its doors in the Short North.
The shop’s opening marks a return to the cookie business for owner Cheryl Krueger, who founded the $50 million cookie company, Cheryl’s, in 1981. She sold that business more than a decade ago and opened up C. Krueger’s, located at 17 E. Brickel St., this Monday.
Inside, shoppers can find a range of cookies, pastries, candies, and other sweet treats. Apple turnovers, cinnamon rolls, caramel corn, sugar cookies topped with buttercream frosting, and a couple dozen other items are offered at C. Krueger’s. They can be bought individually or as part of a gift box. The store offers a variety of gift boxes and bags and has a station dedicated to customized gift-wrapping.
While the shop is now open, it’s not yet in its final form. To drink, C. Krueger’s currently offers a couple different coffees, but soon there will be a milk bar, featuring five kinds of milk. Other local businesses, including Sassafras Bakery and Tupelo Doughnuts, will begin offering their products at the shop as well.
There’s no need to grab and go at C. Krueger’s, there’s enough seating for up to 25 people. Shoppers have been trickling in and out since the shop soft-opened on Monday, Oct. 22. Store Manager Thomas Petersen says they’ll have a grand opening in November, when everything is up and running 100 percent.
