A Queens-based cookie chain opened a location in Bayside last week.
Chip City, which was founded in Astoria, cut the ribbon Friday on a store at the Bay Terrace Shopping mall located at 23-96 Bell Blvd. in Bayside.
The cookie chain is best known for its “ooey gooey,” thick cookies and zany flavors. Some fan favorites include chocolate chip, funfetti, chocolate peanut butter, blueberry cheesecake, peanut butter & jelly, s’mores and lemon berry.
The company, originally known as Chip, has about 40 cookie recipes and offers a menu of four flavors that rotate daily in each store. The cookies are baked in-shop with premade batter mixed at Chip City’s commercial kitchen.
The Bayside location will be the sixth Chip City in Queens and its 11th citywide.
The company has expanded significantly since it opened its first store in Astoria at 30-06 34th St. in July 2017. A year later, it opened its second shop in the Ditmars section of Astoria. It then opened one in Long Island City in 2019 and another in Sunnyside in 2020.
In January, the store opened a location in Forest Hills at 72-34 Austin St.
Chip City has also opened three stores in Manhattan and two in Brooklyn since its founding, with several more on the way.
