If you have dreams of opening your own bakery, we may have the opportunity for you! Like any entrepreneur, you have the choice between investing in a franchise or opening your own bakery from scratch. Although starting a small business may seem like the better option, franchises offer several benefits that an independently-owned bakery can’t offer. Here’s how you can open your own bakery through franchising and why Great American Cookies is the best opportunity to do it.
We’ve been #1 ranked baked goods franchise for a reason: customers love us. Whether it’s our cookie cakes, our double doozies, or our brownies, customers know we have something unique to offer that tastes amazing. The benefit of franchising is that every Great American Cookies offers the same items. This assures customers that no matter what location they go to, they can order the same thing from our menu. Great American Cookies can also be found virtually anywhere: a college campus, a stadium, a mall, or even an airport. There are ample possibilities for a Great American Cookies that may not be available to a small bake shop.
Another benefit to investing in a dessert franchise like Great American Cookies is the training you get prior to even setting foot in your own franchise. After you pay the initial investment and sign the franchise agreement, we will train you on the ins and outs of your new franchise and teach you more about the industry. Because we offer such an inclusive training program, this means that our franchisees do not have to come from backgrounds with baked goods. In addition to our training, we also provide ongoing support to make sure things are running smoothly when you own your own baked goods franchise.
When you open your own bakery, you don’t have anyone there to train and support you before you open. There could be a lot of trial and error, which can cost you time and money. This is why more and more entrepreneurs are leaning toward investing in a franchise instead of opening their own bakeries by themselves.
Opening your own bakery could mean a lot of surprise costs that arise as you get your business up and running. With a Great American Cookies franchise, you will know exactly what to expect. We have a clearly outlined estimated investment that highlights what your money goes toward. This includes the initial training, support, and other things that will help you start your franchise.
Every Great American Cookies location is different, which means there will be variances in the total investment from one franchise to the next, but each one comes with the same benefits that make our brand so unique.
At Great American Cookies, we offer a beneficial way to open a bakery without the hassles that come with owning a small business. With a franchise, you are still involved in all the day-to-day operations surrounding your bakery, but you have a brand behind you who is supporting you every step of the way. We understand that our brand is only as strong as the franchisees behind it, so we want to help you stay on track for success.
