New York City’s Levain Bakery is set to go cross country to Los Angeles, according to Eater LA. The cookie bakery has signed a lease in the city’s Larchmont Village neighborhood.
This will be the 12th location for the brand, which also plans to open in Chicago later this year. Its popular cookies can also be found at supermarkets across the country, including Whole Foods.
Levain Bakery confirmed the expansion in a post on Instagram:
Levain Bakery got its start in New York City, where the bakery is best known for its decadent, 6-ounce cookies. It was founded in 1994 by friends Pam Weekes and Connie McDonald, who began baking chocolate chip cookies to fuel their triathlon training.
Over the years, the bakery has expanded to several locations across New York and can also be found in Washington, DC, Boston and Bethesda, Maryland.
