Blueprint Cookies, the maker of Florida’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookie*, is thrilled to announce its grand expansion into the city of Philadelphia.
The company is set to open 3 new stores in Philadelphia. The first store will be located in Rittenhouse Square (268 S 20th St, Philadelphia PA 19103), and is poised to open its doors Q4 2023/Q1 2024, marking a significant milestone in Blueprint Cookies’ journey. For the other 2 stores, Blueprint Cookies is targeting Fishtown and University City.
Founded in 2019, Blueprint Cookies has swiftly gained recognition for its irresistible cookies and creating lasting memories. However, the company’s vision transcends the realm of cookies, seeking to inspire, uplift, and empower individuals as they navigate their unique paths – a philosophy lovingly coined as the “Cookie Journey.”
The exciting expansion into Philadelphia comes with a unique story of partnership and camaraderie. Christian Williams and Johnny Ciarlante, childhood best friends, have united their passions to bring Blueprint Cookies to the City of Brotherly Love. Christian and Johnny’s friendship has roots dating back to elementary school, where their shared love for competitive sports laid the foundation for an unbreakable bond. “Christian and I have been best friends since elementary school. We grew up playing competitive sports against each other, which led to a strong bond between us. From there, we have been attached at the hip – playing the same sports and positions, having similar classes and majors, and even being interested in the same business fields (construction, real estate, and finance). We even currently play on the same amateur level soccer team at Vereinigung Erzgebirge in Warminster. We believe franchising Blueprint Cookies is the first step to a very long and successful business journey between us two,” shared Johnny.
The duo’s partnership extends to a third member, Joe Lees, who brings his extensive background in construction to the table. Joe’s deep connections within Philadelphia’s construction landscape have been instrumental in shaping the venture. “Joe is a very close family friend of our parents, and his construction background and resources in Philadelphia led us to asking him to become our third Partner,” Christian added.
As Blueprint Cookies extends its reach to Philadelphia, the city can expect to savor the same exceptional quality, warmth, and genuine hospitality that have become synonymous with the brand, in addition to some exclusive cookies inspired by the local culture and market.
