Detroit Dough revamps plans, scores deal with Michigan Stadium
Football fans have a new treat to snack on at Michigan football games in the Big House in Ann Arbor: cookie dough.
Detroit Dough LLC, the Detroit-based cookie dough maker that has been buzzing with popularity around the city, struck a deal with Michigan Stadium concessionaire Sodexo Inc. to sell the treat at Wolverine home games this season. The deal includes a Detroit Dough stand at the stadium and offering the product inside the Jack Roth Club, the Maryland-based food provider said.
Cookie dough will be available starting Saturday when Michigan hosts Western Michigan University.
A Closer Look at Entrepreneurship in Detroit’s Food & Beverage Industry
Detroit Dough is a Detroit company serving up ready-to-eat cookie dough, founded in 2017 by Detroit residents Autumn Kyles, Victoria Washington, and Daniel A. Washington. The company started selling their cookie dough at pop-up events and has since established distribution with Emagine theaters and the University of Michigan to sell their product throughout the greater Detroit area. The founders are keen on giving back to their community, as shown through their commitment to fund a neighborhood garden for the residence of the NW Goldberg community.
It’s clear these entrepreneurs focus on growth and community impact will continue to earn Michigan a place on the food and beverage map for years to come, and we cannot wait to support the next high-impact entrepreneurs.
