Good news for George Mason University students and anyone else looking for a late-night snack: Insomnia Cookies is adding a location in Fairfax County.

The business plans to open up shop soon in University Mall at 10669 Braddock Road, according to its website. The plaza is anchored by Giant and includes other businesses like Domino’s, United Bank and Gathering Grounds Cafe.

The company did not immediately indicate when it plans to open, but its website anticipates that it will open “soon.”

Founded by a University of Pennsylvania student in 2003, Insomnia Cookies sells fresh cookies and ice cream. Popular cookie flavors include chocolate chunk, snickerdoodle, and s’mores deluxe. Delivery options will also be available at the new store.

Insomnia Cookies already has several shops in Virginia, including Richmond, Blacksburg, and Charlottesville, but this will be its first in Fairfax County. Another location is also planned in Williamsburg, according to the company’s website.
