​The decision to invest in a Great American Cookies franchise is an investment in your career as well as your community. Our cookie franchise is a great way to start your career as a business owner or even to expand your current business.

What Are the Startup Costs for Our Cookie Franchise?

Each new franchisee is typically required to have a minimum of $100,000 in liquid assets.

  • Our franchise fee is $25,000
  • The minimum square footage for a cookie franchise is 400 square feet
  • On the high end, our stores typically run around 1,000 square feet, but they can be larger, especially if they are cobranded with a Marble Slab Creamery
  • The location in which you invest will have its own laws, taxes, and licensing fees, as well as varying construction and rent costs

What am I Investing in?

When you open a Great American Cookies franchise, you are investing in more than just a business.

A Category Leader in the Baked Goods Franchise Industry

Great American Cookies has been ranked #1 by Entrepreneur Magazine in the baked goods franchise category. This number one ranking is great news for our franchise owners and anyone interested in investing in a franchise. ​It proves our dedication both to our customers and our franchisees.

What are the Ownership Fees?

Fees come in all shapes and sizes, and at Great American Cookies, we try to keep those fees nominal. Our franchisees pay an initial franchise fee and ongoing royalties to keep the mutually beneficial franchisor and franchisee relationship going strong.

How Much Money Can I Make?

Ah, the million dollar question. As we discussed above, each franchise is different and has a different experience, so there is never one answer to this question. Additionally, the regulations on the franchising industry make it difficult for us to make concrete claims about earning potential.
