The story behind Brown Butter Cookie Co.
San Luis Obispo is about to get a whole lot sweeter.
Cayucos-based Brown Butter Cookie Company is planning to open a San Luis Obispo location in Fall 2019, the company announced on Instagram Thursday.
“We are thrilled to announce that we are opening a little retail shop in downtown SLO,” the company wrote in a post Thursday afternoon.
According to the post, the company plans to open at 10003 Osos St. in The San Luis Obispo Collection shopping center. The space has been used for the SLOcally Made holiday market for the past two years. Before that, it was home to the Ian Saude jewelry store.
Brown Butter Cookie Co. — known for its decadently sweet shortbread cookies — was founded by the Hozie sisters, Traci and Christa Hozie, as a website in 2008. The sisters opened their first retail shop selling the cookies in Paso Robles in 2013.
Their cookies have been featured on “The Today Show” and “Rachel Ray Show” and in The New York Times, Gourmet Weekly and Good Housekeeping, according to previous Tribune reports.
