The Cookie Truck(s)

Our Cookiemobile is a lovingly restored and hand-painted 1987 Grumman stepvan. In her former life, she delivered the Washington Post in Delaware! Captain Cookie and his talented friends spent over a year transforming her into a mobile bakery with running water, dipping freezer, and a professional bakery oven. That’s right – we bake right on the truck, so our cookies are always freshly baked – in fact, many times they’re still hot from the oven!

Cookie 2 worked for many years in Flint, Michigan hauling plumbing supplies. Before getting her cookie truck makeover, she sat for several years in a driveway. Look out for a beautiful yellow paint job and the same bakery oven, ice cream, and milk as Cookie 1!

The Captain’s Cookies

Captain Cookie made his first cookie at age four and has been obsessed ever since. His unique recipe for chocolate chip cookies is the result of twenty-plus years of tinkering and testing. While on the quest for perfection, he also developed a handful of knockout recipes for the cookies featured on the truck.

To say these cookies are handmade is an understatement. When Captain Cookie makes a Pumpkin Muffaroon, he personally roasts the pumpkins and sweet potatoes to make the most flavorful mash. Our vegan chocolate chip cookies are extraordinary because Captain Cookie makes his own vegan butter from scratch. There’s a secret ingredient that makes the peanut butter cookies so soft, and the snickerdoodles…well, we can’t give everything away! Rest assured that decades of cookie-making and only the finest ingredients have gone into making YOUR cookie the best you’ve ever had.

Cookies and Ice Cream over Cake Everyday!

As a former student at The George Washington University, Captain Cookie was a campus regular in my time as an undergraduate. Seeing this business grow from the food truck to now have storefronts in multiple cities is so cool and it felt like such a cool way to honor my time in DC by having them as a part of our wedding.

In place of having cake, we hired the Captain Cookie truck to come serve dessert to our wedding guests. Everyone loved this and it was so fun for all the little kids too at our wedding. I think the nicest part about this as well is that people get to pick what they like for dessert rather than getting one flavor of cake that might not be their favorite. Overall, would highly recommend including Captain Cookie in your special day!

The Perfect Dessert and a fun surprise for guests

Hire Captain Cookie! I cannot stress this enough - not only were they easy to communicate with, but the truck was right on time and a charming addition to our special day. An incredible value for the money, great service, and MASSIVE portions! I would hire them for any event, and we are still enjoying the leftover cookies a week later. 10/10, and special thanks to Michael for being our on-site person. Perfect service!

The Best Wedding Dessert!

Captain Cookie was an absolute hit at our wedding! They were prompt and pulled up right next to the tent after dinner which was a fun surprise for our guests. We were so happy that everyone loved all of the cookie and ice cream options and they came prepared to serve all of our guests. Our friends and family are still raving about how great the cookie truck was for dessert! We would recommend Captain Cookie to anyone looking for a different dessert option other than cake at your wedding!
