Six Things That Make Great American Cookies One of a Kind

There’s nothing like sinking your teeth into the warm goodness of a double fudge or Domino Cookie from Great American Cookies. And curating that experience for customers is what it’s all about.

When investors consider franchise ownership, they want to find an opportunity that they can feel equally good about. They’re looking for a franchise opportunity that blends a great product with a market demand, without sacrificing world-class customer service.

Great American Cookies brings all of those things to the table. Great products and needing as little as 400 square feet of viable space in a mall, shopping center, theatre, or other high-traffic location make Great American Cookies an interesting franchise ownership opportunity.

Reasons Great American Cookies Stands Out from the Competition’s Franchise Ownership

Let’s be honest: Everyone loves cookies! Great American Cookies was founded exactly forty years ago this year at the site of Global Franchise Group’s home office, Atlanta. This gets at the first reason to invest in Great American Cookies:

Great American Cookies is an Established Brand

For two generations, Great American Cookies has been offering classic cookies like original chocolate chip and sugar cookies, as well as making a name for itself by offering new, delicious innovations like cookie cakes, double doozies, and brownies at nearly 400 franchise locations in the United States.

Huge Opportunity for Revenue and Growth

You’ll work with area developers and marketers to capitalize on that growing demand and get situated in a high-traffic area conducive to great results. You will need to determine which area you would like to grow and perform your own market research. Speak with the franchise team to determine store availability in your area.

Number One, According to Entrepreneur

Great American Cookies is enjoying its spot as #1 in Entrepreneur‘s baked goods franchise category.

This is the sixth consecutive year that Great American Cookies has pulled down the coveted honor, and Great American Cookies consistently ranks near the top half of Entrepreneur‘s Franchise 500 as well.

Ideal for Investors with Multi-unit Ambitions

Global Franchise Group recognizes multi-unit ownership as the new normal and works with Great American Cookies investors to make owning more than one Great American Cookies location easy, convenient, fulfilling, and more lucrative.

Becoming a multi-unit operator potentially enhances your revenue streams, and co-branding opportunities go through the roof when you work within the Global Franchise Group’s star-studded lineup of brands.

Great American Cookies Fun For All Ages

Great American Cookies franchise locations can operate in a huge array of locations, including: malls, end-cap and pad shopping centers, lifestyle centers, entertainment centers, theaters, airports, community centers, and even military bases. We all need a snack every now and then.

Virtually anywhere that has access to 60,000 or more customers—even if those customers are itinerant and mobile—might be a suitable candidate for a Great American Cookies franchise location.

It’s preferable to be around a high-traffic area with well-disposed customers—places like schools, universities, and airports—with anchor stores nearby. Think food courts or urban storefronts.
