Insomnia Cookies announces first location on Long Island


Late-night snacking Long Islanders, you can sleep happily knowing this: the island is getting its first Insomnia Cookies.

The popular chain bakery is known for serving delicious cookies and other desserts, such as brownies and ice cream, at all hours of the day and night, staying open until 3 a.m. daily.

With over 240 locations across the U.S., including more than a dozen in New York City, the company announced on Oct. 9 its plans to expand into new areas, including Long Island. The new location will be in Uniondale, situated near Hofstra University on Fulton Avenue, as reported by News 12.

It is currently unclear where the exact address of the storefront will be or when it is scheduled to open. For more details, please check back with later.

Insomnia Cookies was founded in 2003 by college pals Jared Barnett and Seth Berkowitz, who began selling cookies out of their dorm rooms at the University of Pennsylvania. They later opened their first location in Syracuse.

“I could have never imagined that an idea that began in my dorm room would one day blossom into a beloved global bakery,” said Seth Berkowitz, Founder and CEO of Insomnia Cookies. “Insomnia is so grateful to our loyal Insomniacs, whose insatiable hunger and passion for our brand has fueled our growth.”
