One of the neatest and most fun business opportunities to get into is the cookie making business. After all, who doesn’t like cookies? Older people, younger people, kids of all ages, men, women, and children—everybody loves cookies.
Sure, you’ll have to like to bake cookies—lots of cookies actually—and you’ll have to be willing to put in the time to make the dime, but all in all, cookies pretty much sell themselves with the right amount of advertising, marketing, and having a great location.
The next thing you’ll need to do is decide on a name for your cookie business. You’ll want it to be catchy and easy to remember, so that when someone thinks about getting some good cookies, they’ll think about you.
Needless to say, there are potentially thousands of names you could come up with, and you’ll have to choose wisely. You’ll not only want a name that speaks of delicious delights, but you’ll also want something that will have the staying power necessary for an established operation.
After all, when your cookie business is established, you can expect potential orders from consumers and commercial accounts, who will look forward to dealing with you time and time again. Therefore, having a recognizable name must also be considered as one of the benchmarks of your cookie making business.
Having a name that will be recognized and remembered is the first step to having your own cookie business, and that is a good place to begin. But what about some of the other things—the intangibles—that starting a business like this will entail?
You’ll need to consider things like location, which could mean everything. And then there’s training, because you may have an idea of what you want to do, but without the proper training on how to do it, you might get stuck with a lot of uncooked cookie dough.
Then there are other things to consider, like future employees, how to get the family involved, working hours, whether or not your community could even support a cookie business, marketing, and so much more.
The truth of the matter is that if you are going to start a business like this, the best way is to start with an established company that already has name recognition. That’s what a Great American Cookies franchise is all about.
