Cookie Spin is a local favorite with its welcoming atmosphere and mouth-watering cookie and ice cream combos! We talked to the owner, Joe LaMondi, for the inside scoop on their story.

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate:  When was Cookie Spin created?

Cookie Spin: “We originally started in 2014, with just event catering and wholesaling.  In November 2016, we opened the shop in North Center, and have been here ever since, while still featuring on-site catering throughout the Chicagoland area.”

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate:   What is the back story to opening Cookie Spin? 

Cookie Spin: “Since I was a child, I always had a passion for baking and cooking, instilled in me by my grandmother, Angeline Bertuca. I had been working in catering throughout college, and managing a catering company post-college, when I came up with the idea to do a Warm Cookie Sundae Bar as an on-site dessert option.  As for the cookie style, I always felt the best part of the cookie was that soft gooey center, so I wanted to make the entire cookie that texture- thus the deep-dish cookie!

After saving up from catering events and wholesaling for about two years, I was able to open the storefront at 4350 N. Leavitt, and we’ve been here for about 5 and a half years now.”

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate: What is your favorite cookie?

Cookie Spin: “My favorite cookie… that’s tough to say, since I come up with all the recipes myself.  I can give my top three:  Ultimate Peanut Butter, Snickerdoodle Swirl, and Lemon Poppyseed, though I do love a classic chocolate chip… and a warm Birthday Cake cookie is pretty hard to top, as well…”

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate: What is your favorite cookie & ice cream mix?

Cookie Spin: “My favorite combo would be a nice warm fudge brownie with Oreo ice cream, peanut butter sauce, and a dollop of whipped cream.”

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate: What is your favorite part of owning Cookie Spin?                                                                                    

Cookie Spin: “What I truly love is being in the kitchen and creating – whether it be new cookie flavors, specialty milkshake combos, new cookie doughs, etc… I have a blast creating.”

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate:  Anything else you’d like to speak on for Cookie Spin?

Cookie Spin: “Another really cool part is interacting with our regular customers and having those longstanding relationships. I have families that I have catered events for all of their children, couples that come in every Saturday night, and kids that come by after school several times a week; it’s just really cool to be a part of that neighborhood fabric, and to be “the spot.””
