The company initially launched in 2017 under the leadership of co-founder Jason McGowan, who is Canadian.

It has become "social media famous," gaining more than 6 million followers on TikTok.

The Edmonton location is located at 5041 Mullen Road in southwest Edmonton and is owned locally.

Moore said she was excited to see the support from the community.

"People are coming from far and wide to try their first Crumbl Cookie."
