Cookie Cart is a nurturing community of support for young people to thrive, blossom and become the best they can through a youth employment and engagement program.
U+B was hired by Cookie Cart to investigate creative solutions that would allow greater efficiencies and an increased production capacity at their original bakery operation in North Minneapolis. Coupled with this, our team sought to afford a greater sense of identity and exposure; visually bringing the heart of this exceptional organization to the public.
The first-floor renovation brings the street-scape to life by pulling the bakery to the front of the building, and allowing the student employees to take center stage in the new kitchen. A revamped brand identity, illustrated through vivid graphics, brings a fresh look to the adjacent café space and draws clientele in from the street.
Due to the successful collaboration and implementation on their flagship North Minneapolis location, Cookie Cart has retained U+B to design a second bakery, serving the community of East St. Paul, Minnesota.
