Night Owl Cookie Co.: Miami's First Late-Night Munchies Delivery Service
We've all been there. You just got home from a lousy day at work and you're still drunk from happy hour. You crash on the couch, switch on some mindless TV show, and then realize: You need cookies. Now.

Enter Night Owl Cookie Co. -- Miami's first late-night munchies delivery service. Started by local college student Andrew Gonzalez, Night Owl Cookie delivers fresh-baked cookies and milk straight to your door from noon until 2 a.m.
The menu features 25 different flavors, including the sweet n' salty cookie with chocolate chunks, salted caramel, and chopped pretzels. There's also the cheesecake cookie -- cream cheese cookie dough mixed with graham cracker crumbs and white chocolate chips, drizzled with a cream cheese glaze.
Just in time for Thanksgiving, cookie monsters can even pre-order Night Owl's pumpkin cheesecake cookie -- a chocolate chip variety with pumpkin purée, cheesecake filling, and graham cracker crumbs.
Short Order spoke with Gonzalez about the delivery business, late-night munchies, and his favorite cookie.
Short Order: What's the story behind Night Owl Cookie?
Andrew Gonzalez: I founded Night Owl in 2012 when I was a sophomore in college. I would stay up late studying for exams and would always get hungry for something sweet. The problem was that my fridge was constantly empty (college student problems) and every restaurant and fast food joint near my house would be closed. I knew I couldn't be the only person feeling this way and that's when I came up with the idea of Night Owl Cookie Co.
Why do you think Miami needs a cookie delivery service?
Miami is one of the top cities in the nation when it comes down to partying and knowing how to have a good time. With three major college institutions and hundreds of clubs and bars, starting up Night Owl in Miami was a no brainer.
