[EXCLUSIVE] Insomnia Cookies' Munchies Relief Comes to 2nd Atlanta Location

Insomnia Cookies is adding a second metro Atlanta location.  On the heels of their entry into the Atlanta market in January 2016, Insomnia plans to open their next location on Cleburne Terrace, just off Ponce de Leon Avenue near The Majestic Diner and the Plaza Theatre.  
The Cleburne Terrace store will open in the approximately 600 square foot space previously home to Preservation Reef, an aquarium store.  

With dual headquarters in New York and Philadelphia, Insomnia Cookies was started in 2003 by Seth Berkowitz, a student at the University of Pennsylvania.  Today, there are over 120 locations, many near college campuses, but others, like the Cleburne store, are in densely populated urban areas.  

As the name suggests, Insomnia is intended to be the answer to your late night munchies as they deliver until 3AM at most locations, including all three of their existing Georgia shops.   

The first Georgia location of Insomnia Cookies opened in Athens near the University of Georgia in 2013.  The existing Midtown Atlanta location at University House on Spring Street near Georgia Tech opened in 2016, and was followed by a third location in Statesboro near Georgia Southern University last January.  

Tiff's Treats, another business specializing in cookie delivery, will open another Atlanta location later this spring in Buckhead. The new location, opening in the street level retail of the new Hanover Buckhead Village luxury apartment highrise next to the Buckhead Theatre, is the sixth in metro Atlanta for the Austin, Texas-based company. Tiff's entered the Atlanta market in 2016 with a location in Alpharetta and followed that with locations in Midtown, Sandy Springs, Cumberland and Decatur.   

The Cleburne Terrace Insomia Cookies should open later this spring/summer.

I really hope they will expand their delivery range. Last I checked, the delivery range is extremely small. Like 3 miles. This new location would be around 5 miles away.

Can you go pick them up or is it delivery only?

@Anon RE: Pickup,

Pickup is also an option.

The cookies I enjoy most were my grandmothers followed by my Mom. The other shops need to learn how to add TLC
