You think that starting a cookie franchise is the way to go for you to build your own business. However, you’re also nervous because you aren’t experienced in food service or the restaurant industry. Luckily, thanks to Great American Cookies and its cookie franchise training and support staff, you’re in good hands. The whole team at Great American Cookies, as well as Global Franchise Group, is dedicated to helping put you, and your business, in the best possible position to succeed from Day 1.
Am I A Qualified Franchisee?
The fact that you’re asking is a great start. Becoming a successful franchisee is a simple process as long as you’re willing to put in the work and have a motivating dream of starting a cookie franchise (or at the very least becoming a business owner!).
The process starts with your online application and, if you’ve met our initial criteria, you will then receive a franchise disclosure document (FDD) that will outline everything you need to know about opening one of our franchises, including financial information like average sales and cost of product. All the while we will be providing cookie franchise training and support. We are always willing to answer questions you may have about the franchising process.
Ok, But What About The Money?
Starting a cookie franchise takes an investment up front. The initial franchise fee is $25,000 per store. Beyond that, there are many variables in terms of what your total investment will be.
Great American Cookies franchises vary in size from 400-1400 square feet. The size of your franchise will play a role in determining how much your upfront investment will be. When taking all factors into account, the average total investment is between $192,900-$352,650, and we will provide cookie franchise training and support along step of the way.
Your investment entails becoming a part of the company that is ranked by Entrepreneur. Great American Cookies is a well-established brand and investing in it will allow you to have the piece of mind knowing that you will be working with cookie franchise training and support experts looking to help you find success.
Remember: Quick-Service Restaurants Are Big Business
In 2015 the quick service restaurant (QSR) industry generated $200 billion in revenue in the United States. That’s nearly a quarter of the entire restaurant business in the country.
The industry has been growing, and is projected to grow in the future. Millennials are coming to quick-service restaurants in droves. By becoming a franchise owner for a known, successful brand, you can put yourself in a position to potentially ride that growing wave yourself.
