“Be it a new campus or a city location, our number one priority is always our insomniacs. We’re proud to satisfy their cravings day or night,” said Seth Berkowitz, founder and CEO of Insomnia Cookies, in a release. “With 215 stores and counting, plus new investments in immersive customer experiences like our CookieLab, we’re continuing to prioritize growth and building connections over warm cookies to power our business forward.”

The bakery was founded in 2003 inside a University of Pennsylvania dorm room. Insomnia Cookies’ first brick-and-mortar location was in 2006 in Syracuse, New York.

The new location will be open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday and Friday, noon to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Insomnia Cookies said they will deliver throughout the downtown area of Dayton, Oakwood and will also serve the University of Dayton campus and surrounding neighborhoods.
