Mark Suleiman, the Lincoln investor and entrepreneur who is reopening Barry's Bar and Grill, also is bringing a new food brand to town.
Last November, Suleiman bought Goodly Cookies, a gourmet cookie shop based in Salt Lake City that he discovered while on a trip to visit a friend in Utah.
Now he's bringing the brand and its deluxe offerings to two locations in Lincoln.
The first Goodly Cookies will open Oct. 8 at 1205 Q St., next door to the FedEx Office Print & Ship Center.
Suleiman, who owns the building, said the store will open at 5 p.m. that day, and the first 100 people in line will receive a box with four free cookies. Every customer who comes to the store that day will receive one free cookie.
In addition to the downtown location, Suleiman is planning a Goodly Cookies location at SouthPointe Pavilions, although an opening date has not been announced.
The Lincoln locations will be the second and third ones in Nebraska. A location at Village Pointe Shopping Center in Omaha opened a few weeks ago.
Suleiman also is planning to open locations in Denver and Fort Collins, Colorado, sometime next year.
Goodly Cookies, which was founded in 2017, specializes in large gourmet cookies. Among its offerings are the molten lava cake, a combination cookie-brownie called the "brookie" and white chocolate raspberry delight.
