‘Dirty Dough Cookies’ Coming to Southside Marketplace

| December 13, 2023 | 0 Comments

Dirty Dough Cookies is coming to Southside Marketplace in Riverside/Locust Point. Dirty Dough Cookies is taking over the former 900 sq. ft. suite of PokeOno, which closed in recent weeks.

Dirty Dough Cookies was started out of a dorm room kitchen in Tempe, AZ and now has locations throughout the country. The Riverside location is a franchise. The company also has a location in Halethorpe.

Dirty Dough Cookies offers different flavors of cookies along with milk and soda.

In an email to SouthBMore.com, Dirty Dough Cookies Director of Franchise Support Melissa Both said they chose the location because:

It’s anchored by Giant and our stores really excel when there’s a well frequented grocery nearby. Various co-tenants like Starbucks, Subway, Smoothie King, Chipotle and more make it an attractive shopping center with daily traffic with similar demographics as ours. It’s near a public swimming pool, museums, and a science center. There’s a population count of over 200k within 3 miles, with an average household income of over $100k. Great signage and pylon opportunities with ample parking. It really fits many of our recommended requirements for a retail Dirty Dough location!

Dirty Dough Cookies is just starting the permit process and hopes to open in the next 90 days.

The new Dirty Dough Cookies is part of a big tenant shakeup at Southside Marketplace, which is owned by Regency Centers. Advance Auto Parts is coming to a 6,900 sq. ft. space that was formerly Pet Valu and Reflex Functional Fitness (relocated to Silo Point in 2022). Five Below opened in October in a 9,200 sq. ft. space that was previously Walgreens, and Quickway Japanese Hibachi opened in September in a 2,400 sq. ft. space that was previously Sleepy’s.

A new pediatric dental office called Sparkling Charms is coming to the former 3,206 sq. ft. Popeyes location, which has been vacant for more than 12 years. Inspire Nail Bar will open in a 2,800 sq. ft. space that was previously made up of suites for Great Clips, which closed in 2022, and T-Mobile, which closed this year.

Lucky Nails’ 1,386 sq. ft. suite is advertised as ‘available soon.’

Regency Centers is currently advertising three available suites: the former Southside Marketplace cleaners, which moved at the end of 2022 and changed its name to McHenry Row Cleaners (1,500 sq. ft.); the former Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty, which relocated to Federal Hill this year (6,600 sq. ft.); and the soon-to-be-former Lucky Nails (1,386 sq. ft.).

Andrew Kabat, Senior Vice President and Senior Market Officer for Regency Centers told SouthBMore.com in an email, “we have a broader master plan that we have been working on executing over the last few years that started with Giant and Five Below.  I believe we are 60-70% of the way through that execution.”
