Ellis Realty Advisors has entered into a partnership with Crumbl Cookies, assisting with the location of five of its Massachusetts-based franchises, including the Hanover bakery on Merchant’s Row.
Ellis Realty Advisors has also assisted this franchisee with site selection for four additional Massachusetts-based Crumbl Cookies stores. New stores are open or opening soon in Plymouth, Dedham, Wareham and Hyannis.
“When we were first tasked with the initiative of finding the franchisee a viable location, we had to discuss a pivot from the normal corporate location that the franchisor sought after,” said Adam Bauer, Senior Partner, Business Brokerage and M&A Advisory. “The zoning challenges and site requirements simply were not practical from a site selection standpoint in a restrictive zoning market like Southeastern Massachusetts. Crumbl Cookies followed the guidance of our team, and we were able to locate the first store in Hanover in an ideal space which was not yet being actively marketed. With this first success in Hanover, Commercial Advisor Bill Kingdon was able to spearhead the charge on multiple locations throughout Southeastern Massachusetts making this franchisee an industry leader. We could not be happier for our client’s success.”
Since opening in 2017, Crumbl Cookies, co-founded by cousins Jason McGowan and Sawyer Hemsley, has expanded to over 600 bakeries in 47 states nationwide, making it the fastest-growing cookie company in the U.S.
“We’re delighted to be a part of the Crumbl Cookies success story here in Massachusetts,” said David Ellis, founder and managing partner of Ellis Realty Advisors. “We take great pride in locating the most favorable sites for all our clients, taking into account their individual business needs.”
