Business: Midnight Munchies offers late-night cookies

by Jane Knoerle

Do you get those late night sweet tooth cravings? You're not alone, says Mark Sherry, whose Midnight Munchies Bakery now provides late-night cookie delivery service to Menlo Park, Atherton and Palo Alto on Friday and Saturday nights from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Although Stanford students are his best customers, pregnant women, new mothers and families who don't want to venture out late at night, are also experiencing the "midnight munchies," he says.

The cookies, which go by such fanciful names as Double Rainbow, Peanut Butter Jelly Time, Chocolate Rain, Boom Goes the Dynamite, and Annoying Orange, sell six for $7.50 and are baked to order. If you want milk, that sells for $1.75 for an 8-ounce container. A minimum order is $12. Estimated delivery time is 45 to 60 minutes.

The bakery, which opened in November of last year, has been providing catering service to residents and businesses, as well as nationwide shipping. Its kitchen is located in space leased from Studio Cakes at 104 Gilbert St. in Menlo Park.

Midnight Munchies owner, Mark Sherry, a 2009 graduate of Carnegie Mellon University with a degree in economics, says he fills orders for Facebook, Google, and Hewlett-Packard, as well as for college students and families.

Moving to Palo Alto after college, he was struck by the fact that so few food services made late-night deliveries. That, and his interest in baking from the time he was a kid, led him to the Midnight Munchies Bakery concept.

"After all, why not do something that makes you happy for the rest of your life," he says.

If Midnight Munchies offers Alice B Toklas Brownies, which has enjoyed a recent revival due to the "Green" efforts by a local bakery on Pope Street I will be placing some serious orders
