Late night cookie consumers will soon have more than one cookie delivery company to choose from.

Insomnia Cookies will be opening a location at 128 Appalachian St. off King Street, said Tracie Kurtz, Insomnia Cookies marketing manager.

“Insomnia Cookies specializes in delivering warm, delicious cookies all day long and late into the night,” Kurtz said.

They currently have two North Carolina locations and 69 other locations on the eastern half of the U.S.

Insomnia Cookies deliver cookies, brownies and ice cream until 3 a.m.

Boone’s only current cookie delivery service is Appalachian Cookie Co., founded by Appalachian State University alumnus David Holloman.

“Boone is an amazing place for a business like ours so I’m not surprised they’ve decided to open a location here,” Holloman said.

Appalachian Cookie Co. is continually developing new cookie flavors and has cookie specialties such as cookie of the month and seasonal and holiday cookies, Holloman said.

“Not only do we provide a quality, gourmet product at the same price as our competitor, but we embody the local movement,” Holloman said. “We are a locally owned business, owned by an Appalachian State graduate that is consistently and frequently finding ways to give back to a community that has been paramount in our success.”

Appalachian Cookie Co. will be extending its delivery hours from 2 a.m. to 3 a.m. in August.
