Cookie shop Munster Cravings is headed to Tucker.
A new location is planned for 2323 Main St., according to owner Veronica Dalzon. The AJC first reported the news.
The location was formerly the Latin vegan restaurant Papi Ali’s and then sausage restaurant For Better or Wurst.
Munster Cravings currently operates a stall at Chattahoochee Food Works in Atlanta’s Upper Westside. But coming to Tucker is a “full circle” moment for Dalzon.
“Tucker is actually where I started, where I did one of my first pop-ups when I first started this cookie business,” Dalzon said in a phone interview. “Tucker’s just very close to my heart.”
Dalzon had gone to school nearby, at Mercer University, where she earned a degree in human resources. Opening a cookie shop happened by chance, she said.
“Cookies just make my knees weak,” Dalzon said. “I love, love, love dessert. I would almost prioritize dessert over real food any day.”
Dalzon said Munster Cravings creates traditional cookies with a twist, deeming them “the best cookies you will ever eat.”
The cookie offerings include classics like chocolate chip and snickerdoodle. There is also a fruity pebbles cookie, which is a sugar cookie with white Belgian chocolate, buttercream frosting and fruity pebbles, and a peanut butter and jelly, which is a brown sugar cookie base with peanut butter morsels that’s topped with peanut butter and grape jelly.
Dalzon said the Tucker location will serve as a pilot franchise as she hopes to soon franchise Munster Cravings.
“We have gone through the motions, and we’ve gone through the legal parts to go ahead and start offering franchise opportunities in the near future,” she said.
