Cookie dough lovers, you're in luck: Detroit Dough is on a mission to bring a "safe-to-eat" version of the tasty treat to the city with pop-up locations and a storefront slated to open next year. 

"We've been operating with this whole mantra...Why not Detroit? Why not us?," said Daniel Washington, chief marketing officer for Detroit Dough. 

Daniel Washington with CEO Autumn A. Kyles, General Manager Victoria Washington and Executive Dough Chef Theodore J. Washington III saw the craze taking off in other parts of the country and decided to make it happen here. 

Washington said Detroit Dough is aiming to bring energy and excitement to local businesses with its pop-up circuit.

The next opportunity for you to get yourself a helping of cookie dough will be November 9 through November 11 at The Detroit Clothing Circle at 499 W. Alexandrine Street. 

According to the Detroit Dough website, flavors include Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, Sugar, Brownie and Hold My Chips (cookie dough without the chocolate chips.) 

The cookie dough, he explains, is safe to eat because Detroit Dough uses an organic heat treated flour instead of egg. 

Washington says eventually they will have more than 50 mix-ins available, referring to Detroit Dough as the "Cold Stone of cookie dough." 

On Wednesday night, the company will also be participating in The Dolphin Tank, a business plan and pitch competition hosted by the Michigan Women's Foundation, where the founders will try to secure up to $10,000 for their business. 

The Detroit Dough cafe is expected to open in the spring of 2018 on the corner of Linwood and Ferry Park Street.
