Kansas City, Mo. – Red Bridge Shopping Center is delighted to announce its newest tenant, Cookies & Creamery, a locally owned and operated ice cream shop featuring Kansas City’s best treat-makers. Cookies & Creamery will open their first brick and morter location in the almost 600-square-foot space next to Crows Coffee on the north side of the center with hopes to open by late Fall 2020.
The effects of COVID-19 on the event and entertainment industry created an opportunity for owner Kiffany Bosserman and her husband Steve, to capitalize on the rapidly changing industry. Kiffany’s first concept, Cottontale KC All-Natural Cotton Candy, is Kansas City’s premier cotton candy event experience. When faced with the challenges that 2020 offered, Kiffany doubled down by adding a second brand that would open up opportunities to serve Kansas City with a wider range of treats. Her mobile “Treat Trike,” is a one-of-a-kind tricycle concessions cart which sells Cottontale’s organic cotton candy as well as hand-made ice cream sandwiches, fresh-baked cookies, gourmet popcorn, and now hot cocoa; under her new Cookies & Creamery banner.
“Throughout 2020 we have learned that Cottontale and Cookies & Creamery desperately needed a home base to serve our fans more consistently,” Kiffany said.
Cookies & Creamery at Red Bridge will be a wonderland of Kansas City’s best treat-makers featuring signature items like Creamwiches: made with local ice cream, fresh-baked cookies, and rolled in specialty toppings. Another Cookies & Creamery signature will be their hand-crafted non-dairy Horchata. There will be at least 10 flavors of different local ice creams available by the scoop, fresh-baked cookies from Mary’s Mountain Cookies, PopCulture Gourmet Popcorn, and a selection of milks form Shatto Milk Co.
“Cookies & Creamery is going to be a place where people can gather safely, celebrate accomplishments and so much more,” Kiffany said. “It’ll be a place where we train the next generation in entrepreneurship skills, share our dreams, cheer you on, and give back to the city who has given us so much.”
