Ex-Ohio State Buckeye bringing new cookie business, jobs to Dayton area



A new business is planning to open its first Dayton-area location and is looking to fill more than 50 jobs.

Crumbl Cookies expects to open a Washington Twp. location this fall at Yankee Station on Ohio 725 at Washington Village Drive, according to Oberer Realty Services Ltd.

The franchise owner of Crumbl-Washington Township will be former Ohio State University football and ex-NFL player Reggie Germany and his wife, Oberer said in an announcement Thursday.

Crumbl has signed a lease to occupy 2,300 square feet at that site, the developer said. The store is hiring 50-plus positions, including managers, shift leads, drivers, bakers, and other full and part-time crew members, according to Oberer.

The 4-year-old business that started in Utah has a weekly rotating menu, featuring four flavors of specialty cookies, as well as milk chocolate chip and chilled sugar cookies, according to its website.

In May, it announced the first of three Cincinnati area locations.

Since starting three years ago, Crumbl has expanded to 225 bakeries in 34 states, making it the fastest-growing cookie company in the nation, according to Oberer.

The business currently has five locations in Ohio – three in the Columbus area, and one each in the suburbs of Cincinnati and Cleveland, according to its website.
