The owners of the Krazy Greek restaurant in Rochester are turning their longtime diner into a trendy cookie dough bar.

It will be Oakland County’s first cookie dough bar and metro Detroit’s second; last month, a group of entrepreneurs announced plans to open a cookie dough bar in Detroit.

“My whole family, we’re just kind of burned out on the restaurant business,” said Dino Prapas, who owns the Krazy Greek with his parents, George Prapas, 72, and Barbara Prapas, 68. “With this, you can really get creative. This is something that all of us are going to have a lot of fun doing so it’s never going to seem like work.”

Look for the Krazy Greek — which operated for 43 years and was notable for a Christmas tree that hung upside down from the ceiling all year —  to re-open as Dino’s Cookie Dough Bar in February or March, depending on when the extensive remodel of the building at 111 E. University in downtown Rochester is completed.

Expect it to serve a dozen or so different flavors of cookie dough, including some that are gluten free. “We’ll be doing it by the scoop. You can buy it in cones, waffle cones, you can buy it in a bowl,” said Dino Prapas, who is 43. He said his family will also sell it by the quart.

The cookie dough bar will also serve ice cream because, Dino Prapas said, “a lot of people like to do ice cream with cookie dough.”

For those who aren’t into eating dough, the cookie bar will also serve prefer serve freshly baked cookies.
