Midnight Treats, a local Vienna cookie delivery service, is making your midnight cookie dreams a reality. It was started in July of 2018 by the ambitious Johnny Nguyen, four of his close friends, and his mother. Inspired by his mother’s delicious chocolate chip cookies, Nguyen wanted to find ways to make more money. He decided to make unique cookie creations and deliver them to Northern Virginia area. Thus, Midnight Treats was born.

Nguyen was inspired by the company Insomnia Cookies, which is similar in concept. There isn’t an Insomnia Cookies in the Northern VA area, so Nguyen decided that a cookie delivery service should exist. “For as long as I can remember, I’ve always looked for ways to make money. so I knew I wanted to eventually be my own boss and start a business.” said Nguyen.

Nguyen creates many unique cookies, such as Nutella-stuffed chocolate chip, red velvet, cookies and cream, and peppermint punch.

“With a cookie theme in mind, I go to the grocery store, browse their different cookies and candies and try to imagine which would taste good together and still be on theme,” Nguyen said. Most of the time, he give his friends his new creations to try before he puts them on the menu.

The cookies are pretty affordable, ranging from $1.35 to $4. Ordering them is also very simple. Just head to www.midnightreats.com, make sure your address is within the “delivery radius,” and add your cookie treats to your cart and checkout. Delivery fees and tips will be included in the final checkout and cookies will be at your door within under an hour.

Nguyen hopes that someday Midnight Treats will be able to turn into a storefront retail store. As of now, Midnight Treats operates Friday-Sunday. On Fridays, he’s open from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., and from 7:30 p.m. to 12 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

“So far business has been doing great! There has also been a flood of emails coming in asking if we will ship cookies to other states,” Nguyen stated.

Nguyen wants to make sure that people in Northern Virginia try his cookies and enjoy them. The cookies are always delivered to your house warm. Recently, Midnight Treats added a delivery feature which allows you to send cookies to different states with a handwritten message in the package.

Midnight Treats has both an Instagram and Facebook account for you to follow so you can keep up with them!
