PIER 39 - It's an iconic tourist attraction of San Francisco and, in 2017, became the home of my first brick & mortar storefront. Only 6-months into business at the time, getting this storefront open was a passion-project from a hellbent entrepreneur who managed to go from keys-in-hand to open-for-biz in a record 19 days! I'd gathered an army of friends and family to strip wallpaper, hang signage, paint walls and move furniture. It was a wild ride and over the last 2 years we scooping up for hoards of your Spoonlicking souls; eager to get an insta-worthy shot in front of my "Legit Cookie Dough" wall!
This March we opened our new flagship store on the Las Vegas Strip and it's everything cookie dough dreams were made of. The future of Doughp is so bright, and we've decided to focus on growing our business in e-commerce (getting dough to your door, nationwide!) and through select retail outlets & partnerships (wholesale). I had to make the bittersweet decision to close down our PIER 39 storefront to refocus our efforts on these other exciting business opportunities.
It's not goodbye for good, it's just goodbye til you get your butt to our Vegas storefront or jump online to get a box delivered to your front door. :)
My Doughp storefront on PIER 39 was an epic undertaking that showed me:
Thanks for taking the time to read a little bit from me. I am so grateful to be on this journey. So grateful to hear from many of you about the impact our message has on you. I'm excited for what's ahead...
Come celebrate one last weekend at Pier 39, and receive 40% off cookie dough 8/9-8/11 by saying "The Pier was Doughp!" at checkout.
It's a Doughp day in San Francisco, and all around the world. Get after it.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Doughp Goes Digital in the Bay Area and Says Farewell to
PIER 39 Storefront
At checkout, say ‘The PIER was Doughp!’ and receive 40 percent off through the weekend
After two memorable years of sweet moments and endless scooping in the Bay Area, Doughp is saying farewell to its PIER 39 and Oracle Park locations to focus on bringing their signature edible cookie dough to spoonlickers nationwide through e-commerce and local retailers. But don’t get it twisted, while the storefront is closing, the Doughp jars and Dough-It-Yourself Bar set ups are still available for catering deliveries around the Bay Area.
Small business owner Kelsey Witherow started Doughp in San Francisco and has been scooping edible and ready-to-bake cookie dough since 2017. During this time, Witherow also created the Doughp4Hope initiative which allowed her to give thousands of dollars to local non-profits and participate in numerous community events while working to reduce stigmas on mental health and addiction.
“The PIER 39 storefront was a dream come true,” says Kelsey Witherow, founder of Doughp. “Opening my first Doughp store in a destination that was a part of my childhood allowed my cookie dough to make memories for so many other families. It’s bittersweet, but with the growth we’re experiencing in e-commerce, it’s time to step away from our storefront in the Bay Area and focus on getting dough straight to your door nationwide!”
Clear some space in the fridge and come stock up on Doughp as cookie dough is 40 percent off Aug. 8-11 at the Pier 39 location only – just whisper ‘The PIER was Doughp’ at checkout.
Spoonlickers can visit www.eatdoughp.com/ship-it to find special flavors and packs that can only be purchased online and shipped nationwide. The Cookie Dough-It-Yourself Box includes six mini jars of blonde dough with a variety of toppings - a great way to get everyone involved at a party mixing toppings into cookie dough and creating their own sweet treat. It comes with their classic, indulgent blonde dough – or, for the first time ever, you can order it with “GLUTEN-HATER,” a cookie dough made as a gluten-free, sugar-free and low carb alternative! Retail items such as hats, spoons and t-shirts are also available online.
Thursday, Aug. 8 – Sunday, Aug. 11
10 a.m. – 10 p.m.
San Francisco, Calif. 94133
Bay Area fans can still dig into delicious cookie dough by picking up a jar at Hilton Union Square, Firepie Pizza in the Mission District and just before takeoff at Napa Farms Market in the San Francisco International Airport, Terminal 2.
Of course, no trip to Vegas will be complete without visiting the flagship location inside Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
Serving up nostalgia with every scoop and curating dope moments of self-love, Doughp – the legit cookie dough company, burst onto the dessert scene in 2017 in San Francisco. After a journey in self-discovery and sobriety, founder Kelsey Witherow renewed her love for baking and inadvertently created an amazing edible cookie dough recipe from scratch that can be enjoyed either raw or heated. Doughp continues to take the world by storm with its flagship location on the famed Las Vegas Strip and nationwide shipping through www.doughp.com. Not only is Doughp sweet on the outside, but is sweet on the inside with its long-standing mission to bring attention and awareness to mental health and substance abuse issues with raw truth – with Doughp4Hope, a national campaign giving back to the community by prioritizing mental health for employees and guest alike.
