What started as a pop-up shop on 12 South is now a brick and mortar store, where raw cookie dough is not only safe to eat - it's served by the scoop. 

In six months, Megan Beaven took her cookie dough business from start-up to storefront. 

"[I] did not expect it to progress this fast at all. But the pop-ups were so successful that I felt like I needed an actual storefront to keep up with production and actually serving everybody that I wanted to," she said. 

Beaven is just 23-years old and said launching a business in a booming city has proved more than a little challenging. 

"Just trying to figure out how to legally can sell the cookie dough was a challenge at the very beginning of the company, but opening an actual store front presented hundreds of new issues, not even exaggerating," she said. 

Still, she says Nashville has supported her cookie dough dreams.

"Not only have the people of Nashville been super helpful and they love supporting local business but they love trying new trends," she said. 

Her new store is located on 28th Avenue North.

"The location is just so central, so close to everything in the city. And that is really what I was looking for. I don't think I could've found a better location."

Customers can now enjoy cookie dough every day of the week.

"Some of the new flavors are mint chocolate chip, s'mores, cookies and cream. Basically what you'd think of as the most popular cookies or the most popular ice cream," she said.
