Cookie Dough Bliss Set to Open in Waxhaw in Late February


Waxhaw’s soon-to-be newest resident, Cookie Dough Bliss, is about to bring a unique kind of dessert experience to town!  Both safe and flavored to your liking, it’s the hottest fad in sweet treats!

Owned by Waxhaw residents Allison and Brian Bevacqua, they are setting up this newly established franchise in its second location, after the original in Concord opened back in December to rave reviews! In fact, so many traveled from Waxhaw to Concord and remarked at how beloved this business would be off Main Street, that there planted the seed for the Bevacquas to branch out.

Ever since the Bevacquas moved to Waxhaw in 2015, they’ve been looking for opportunities to bring something truly special to the town.  “We came across this and thought it would be great to bring a fun dessert product here.  It’s something new and exciting,” remarked Allison.  

Nestled in the newly developed Shoppes at Millview, Cookie Dough Bliss will be both convenient and walkable on Main Street.  Allison adds, “We knew we wanted to stay in Waxhaw.  We love the small-town charm, and all the events that go on down here.”  



The Bevacquas goal is to create a unique experience for customers — similar to the layout of an ice cream shop, but with an elegant touch.  Customers will be able to choose their desired base dough flavor such as sugar cookie, cookies and cream, Nutella, Andes mint, red velvet, brownie batter, cake batter and of course, chocolate chip.  The latter three have been the Concord location’s best sellers and Waxhaw will likely follow suit.  Additionally, customers can expect seasonal flavors to pop up throughout the year.   

Cookie dough will be served up in cups or waffle cones, but cookie dough pies and dough pops (similar to cake pops) will also be available.  The franchise’s best-selling cookie dough ice cream sandwich, which is exactly what one would think it’d be, will be available to purchase, along with gluten free and vegan options.  

While the products themselves are not made in-house, they last over two weeks refrigerated and longer frozen.  They are made with pasteurized egg product and treated flour to ensure its safe consumption.  

With a planned late February 2018 opening, Cookie Dough Bliss will aim to cater to both large and small crowds.  There will be two suites in the shop – one with dine-in seating and another to host parties of all kinds.  Allison commented that it would be the perfect place to bring a team, post-game, to celebrate a win or a hard-fought season, and provide a venue that is currently missing from the landscape of downtown.    

For the Bevacquas, who intend to involve their three children in the operations, making this new business a family affair is a priority for them and those who stop in for a taste!
