Our Story

Elevating the Cookie to New Dimensions of Tastiness

Founded in 1977 on the strength of an old family chocolate chip cookie recipe, Great American Cookies® has set the standard for gourmet cookie sales in a fun, celebratory environment. For over 30 years, Great American Cookies has maintained the heritage and integrity of its products by producing proprietary cookie dough exclusively from its plant in Atlanta. Great American Cookies is known for its signature cookie cakes, trademark flavors and menu of delectable products baked fresh in store.

Who We Are

Great American Cookies is more than just delicious, fresh-baked cookies. We believe in providing excellent support to the local community. During the marketing section of training at GFG University, franchisees learn the importance of supporting the local community. Our franchisees are active members of their local Chambers of Commerce, supporters of the neighborhood schools and partners with not-for-profit and other charitable organizations.

As many of our locations are in malls, we often partner with other retail outlets to help drive small business. We are also very supportive of the employees who work in the malls and we develop special programs to reward their service. We find giving back to the community in which we operate extremely rewarding. It is something we love and enjoy!
