In 2017, the Jersey City dessert scene got a major upgrade with the arrival of Bang Cookies’ first brick-and-mortar location. After two years of operating at 1183 Summit Avenue, the all-organic, stuffed cookie company expanded to downtown Jersey City, the Menlo Park Mall, and the new Terminal A at Newark Airport. With dreams as big as their cookies (truly, if you know you know), Bang Cookies is now venturing to the American Dream Mall: but with these new coordinates comes the closure of the OG location in the Heights. As of Tuesday, August 1st, Bang Cookies said goodbye to Summit Avenue to pursue “future projects.” Read on for what we know about Bang Cookies’ Jersey City Heights closure.
Closing The Doors on Summit Avenue
Earlier this summer, Bang Cookies hung signage at its 1183 Summit Avenue location announcing that it would be closing “due to future projects” on Tuesday, August 1st. The notice assured locals that the downtown Bang Cookies (at 128 Newark Avenue) will remain open, as will the cookie company’s other outposts in the Menlo Park Mall (in Edison) and the Newark Airport in Terminal A. Bang Cookies expressed gratitude to Jersey City Heights residents, saying “thank you for the 4 wonderful years you have supported our business.”
The future projects in question: a location inside of the American Dream Mall in East Rutherford. It’s unconfirmed at this time if the American Dream Mall outpost will be a full storefront or just a kiosk, but it’s worth mentioning that Bang Cookies has its own storefront in the Menlo Park Mall.
As always, Bang Cookies is also available through local delivery and online ordering. You can browse their offerings here.
About Bang Cookies
George Kuan started Bang Cookies in 2016 after realizing that there were no cookie shops that really perfected the organic, all-natural ingredients in a chunky, oversized cookie. Before he went to the public and started promoting his cookies at farmer’s markets and the like, he literally spent years perfecting the perfect cookie recipe that was equal parts organic and decadent. They will legit melt in your mouth, promise.
Since then, Bang Cookies has grown an intense local (and national) following and was touted for its stuffed cookies by the New York Times in 2018, saying, “The company’s new line of big, overloaded, chunky cookies has fillings. And they are delicious.”
On the cookie menu are a variety of exquisite flavors, but S’mores, Sea Salt Chocolate Chunk, and White Chocolate Macadamia Nut are top contenders. That being said, don’t take our word for it — just try them for yourself, and check out the menu here.
