Launching its flagship location is Batch & Box Signature Cookies, a bakery designed for grab-and-go service and featuring a menu of fresh-baked cookies in rotating flavors ranging from classic chocolate chip and snickerdoodle to white chocolate raspberry. Batch & Box also plans to offer dairy-free, vegan cookies as well as gluten-free versions.
