Across from the Beer and Bacon Festival the previous Saturday in Centennial Park, patrons were lined out the door and down the street to get a taste of the unbaked cookie dough served like ice cream. Megan Beaven, a Belmont business graduate, opened her first storefront in Nashville for her No Bake Cookie Dough Company.
Beaven’s Business started as pop-up shops in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky and Nashville, Tennessee. After graduating from Belmont University with a Bachelors in business and major in music business, Beaven joined the music industry before opening her store at 117 28th Avenue North.
Beaven has made appearances on SBS, Insider Louisville, Belmont University, News Channel three, four and five, USA Today and The Tennessean to promote her business and tell her story. Today, she spends most of her time at the new store, making sure everything runs smoothly with no surprises.
The cookie dough is perfectly safe to eat and even comes with vegan options such as the Confetti Sugar flavor. Other flavors consist of Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate Chip, Funfetti
Chip, M&M, and the limited edition Pumpkin Spice.
The dough can be eaten in a cup with a spoon or on a pink cone. It can also be bought online. It has a good four weeks in the refrigerator and three months in the freezer, supplying consumers with plenty of time to devour the delicious treat before spoilage. Once the cookie dough is ordered, it is expected to be delivered within two or three days via FedEx, ground with ice packs to keep it cool.
Local resident, Oli Wiltshire visited the new store the previous weekend and had only good things to say.
“The cookie dough was served just like ice cream in Baskin Robbins... it was really delicious... I would definitely go back. There aren’t many flavors to choose from, but the flavors they do have cover the basics of everyone’s taste palette and are definitely worth a try.”, said Wiltshire.
