The smell of fresh-baked cookies starts to fill the air on a beautiful, crisp fall evening. It’s Friday and the crew over at Cookies & Milk is hard at work, baking the first batches of cookies that will soon be delivered throughout the greater midtown area.

Over the past couple of years, this up-and-coming Sacramento-based company has made access to sweet, late-night treats as easy as ordering a pizza.

Cookies & Milk is a local company founded by Will Countryman and Nick Altman. Mike Ryan, a City College student who works as a delivery driver for the company, calls it a great job.

“I love it!” Ryan said. “It’s probably one of the most cool jobs that I’ve had. It’s so laid back. I get to work with some great friends.” Lucas Graciano, another delivery driver, agrees.

“It’s great,” said Graciano said. “It’s a way better atmosphere than, you know, working for ‘the man’ or any other part-time job.”

The company’s founders say Cookies & Milk gives the longtime friends the chance to work together — their friendship dates back long before they started their business.

“We’ve been friends since high school,” Altman said. “We kind of grew up together back in Modesto.”

The cookie delivery service is the first of its kind in the Sacramento area. It is also one of the only services that delivers late at night, and so far, its founders say, it’s been a hit with the local community.

“Business is pretty good right now,” said Countryman. “We’re becoming way more popular by word of mouth.”

Cookies & Milk typically offers six different types of cookies. In addition to baking traditional chocolate chip cookies, it also sells sugar cookies, peanut butter cookies, chocolate crinkle cookies, snickerdoodles, along with a weekly rotating special.

The cookies are baked in a commercial bakery in downtown Sacramento that the company leases and works out of weekly. The company started in one kitchen and then upgraded.

“There’s a commissary kitchen called Lulu’s kitchen, and that’s where we got our start,” Altman said. “We did end up moving here, to Sugar and Spice, to get better accommodations. We just kind of pitched to different bakeries in the area, and [the owner] ended up letting us use her bakery.”

Deliveries take place three days a week, Thursday through Saturday. On those days, they start fi ring up the ovens at 7 p.m. and don’t stop delivering until around 1:30 a.m.

Each 10.6 ounce carton of milk and a cookie costs $1.50 each, or just $15 per dozen (which includes free delivery). They accept major credit cards, and most orders are processed right at the customer’s door.

Cookies & Milk has a specific delivery zone that serves the Sacramento State, Midtown, Downtown, Curtis Park, Land Park and East Sacramento areas. But even if a person doesn’t fall within that zone, there is an option to pick up the cookies. And they will deliver cookies to any location — a home, a bar or even a park — as long as it’s in the delivery zone.

“People order them to the bars all the time, or when they get home from the bars. People will even order them at 8 p.m. in order for us to get there at midnight so they don’t drunkenly forget,” Graciano said. “We’ll deliver them to you anywhere, unless it’s like, a dark alley, but even then, for the right amount…”
