Sweet treat for Bonnie & Wild as Chulo’s Stuffed Cookies opens Food Hall pop-up for February school holidays

Kids are in for a monster cookie treat when they visit Edinburgh Food Hall Bonnie & Wild over the February half term.

The popular Edinburgh Food Hall is welcoming tasty start-up Chulo’s Stuffed Cookies into its Scottish Marketplace for an exciting pop-up over the holidays.

Kicking off this Friday, Chulo’s will have its own dedicated food stall within Bonnie & Wild, and promises to be a sweet hit with families.

Chulo’s is the latest Scottish venture to take over a space at Bonnie & Wild with the Food Hall championing innovative food and drink businesses, and providing them with the opportunity to showcase their brand and products within the busy St James Quarter.

Having launched from their home during the Covid lockdown, Chulo’s opened its first site in Glasgow’s trendy Finnieston in 2021 before opening a second bakery in Edinburgh’s Stockbridge last year. A regular at farmers markets and food festivals, Chulo’s owners Jordan Rankin and Rebecca Paterson have built up a loyal following of sweet-toothed cookie lovers.

Jordan said: We’ve been on an incredible journey since launching Chulo’s in 2021 – this pop-up is the next exciting step for us as we bring our legendary stuffed cookies to Bonnie & Wild and the St James Quarter. We’ve built up a wonderful and loyal following since launching so hopefully we can convert a few more during our holiday pop-up at Bonnie & Wild!”

Bonnie & Wild’s Managing Director Ryan Barrie said: “I’m a big fan of Chulo’s. I think their cookies are amazing and the I love the entrepreneurial energy of Jordan and Rebecca. It’s been great to see their success over the past few years as their stuffed cookies have really taken off. We’re all really excited about them coming into our Scottish Marketplace for the February holidays and enhancing our vibrant offer, while also adding something extra to guests coming in for the likes of Valentine’s Day and of course the Six Nations Rugby days too.”

Ryan added: “Chulo’s wonderfully complements our amazing and diverse family-friendly offer within the Marketplace that includes pancakes, pizzas and burgers, as well as Asian cuisine and more traditional Scottish fare. There’s something for everyone at Bonnie & Wild.”

The latest pop-up follows on from a series of activations, takeovers and events at Bonnie & Wild, which has also hosted pop-ups by Isle of Raasay Distillery, Okanda, Bernard Corrigan fishmonger and Ruby Flowers, with another pop-up planned for the month of March, and more throughout the year.
