How to Overcome a Lack of Experience in the Industry

Cookie franchise training and support have never been stronger than with Great American Cookies. Between our initial and ongoing training programs, as well as the support we provide, our franchisees understand what it takes to operate their franchises as efficiently as possible. In this entry, we’ll show you how a lack of experience in the industry doesn’t need to prevent you from opening your own Great American Cookies location.

FAT Brands Training

All of our franchisees will join us at our headquarters in Georgia in order to complete a comprehensive training program at FAT Brands Training. During your time in Georgia, you’ll learn all of the basics of operating a Great American Cookies location: food preparation, cleaning procedures, bookkeeping methods, ordering and inventory procedures, and more. You’ll have the opportunity to work directly with our experts and ask questions as they show you what it takes to get your franchise up and running.

Cookie Franchise Training and Support at Your Location

The learning doesn’t end after your time at FAT Brands Training — our experts will join you right in your own location to help you apply everything you’ve learned. In fact, our experts will help you every step of the way, from assisting you with potential locations, to assistance negotiating your lease, to assist with designing just the right build-out for your store. We’ll work with you as you prepare your store to open for business, ensuring that you have the tools and skills you need to manage your business effectively. This one-on-one attention is one of the most valuable aspects of our cookie franchise training and support.

Corporate Support Team

Another important aspect of our cookie franchise training and support is the ongoing support you’ll receive from our corporate support team. You’ll build relationships with the members of our corporate team, who are there to answer your questions and give advice as you grow your business. While independent business owners need to “go it alone” most of the time, you’ll be able to rest easy knowing that you have a team of professionals standing behind you. Our experts are also able to provide you with valuable marketing support as you grow your business, helping to get the word out in your community about your new Great American Cookies location.

These are just a few ways our cookie franchise training and support programs help our franchisees. If you’d like to learn more about what it takes to open a Great American Cookies franchise, contact us today!
