How much does it cost to open a franchise? It depends on a lot of variables: Where will you be located? How large will your location be? Will you open a co-branded location?

Here, you’ll get a sneak peek of a few key estimates.

Our careful planning ensures that franchisees are less likely to deal with unexpected costs as they prepare for their grand opening.

Your Franchise Fee Entitles You to Expert Guidance

Some prospective franchisees wonder why they should partner with a franchise brand when they’re expected to pay a franchise fee. The truth is that our franchise fee entitles you to a host of valuable benefits that can help to boost your business. For instance, we guide our franchisees in finding the right location.

We mentioned above that there are lots of options for our franchisees in terms of size and location type. Independent business owners often struggle to decide on exactly where to open and how to build out their store, but we help our franchisees make those decisions. We partner with real estate experts who know the available spaces in your territory well, and we’ll give you guidelines for choosing a lease at the right price.

Great American Cookies franchises are versatile enough to fit into a kiosk or shared space in a food court and can easily function as freestanding stores as well. We’ll work with you to find just the right place in your community to open up shop. Whether it’s an airport, a college campus, or a co-branded location (with one of Global Franchise Group’s many other popular brands), the type of location you choose will ultimately impact your total investment.
