An Expert Guide to Opening Your Own Dessert Franchise

It’s not a stretch to say that people love cookies. A growing business, Persistence Market Research projects the global market for cookies to push toward $40 billion annually, with consistent growth, by 2022.

That is a lot of money for a lot of cookies. Getting involved in that fast-growing business seems like a no-brainer. Opening a Great American Cookies franchise could be the way to go for you. You would run your own business, set your own schedule, and make people in your community happy and satisfied with warm, gooey cookies.

Why a Dessert Franchise?

One of the best reasons to open a Great American Cookies franchise is because it may not be as hard as you think. Opening a dessert franchise like Great American Cookies comes with the built-in advantage of being involved with a known, respected brand that puts out a quality product.

Ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine, Great American Cookies has a reputation for excellence. Using only fresh, never-frozen dough sets a high bar for other quick-service restaurants to try to match.

Another reason to invest in a dessert franchise is that the quick-service restaurant industry is booming. With more than $200 billion in annual revenue in the United States alone, and expected to grow 2.5 percent annually through 2020, there’s never been a time to buy your own franchise and start working toward the dream of being your own boss.

Do It for the People

The people you get to meet, and work with, are one of the most rewarding parts of owning, and running, a dessert franchise. From the customer side of things, anyone with a sweet tooth is a possible customer for you. Cookies are a staple food at all types of celebrations from birthdays and graduation parties to bar mitzvahs and office parties. The number of people that will walk through the front doors of your dessert franchise will be a cross-section of the diverse population of your community.

In terms of employees, as the person in charge, you dictate who works at your dessert franchise alongside you. That gives you total control over the type of person you employ. You can find the people that share your values for hard work, strong customer service, and dedication to maintaining a quality product.
