Do you have a sweet tooth—with a particular affinity for cookies? Have you been dreaming about becoming the owner of your own business? If you’re nodding at these two seemingly unrelated questions, then maybe you should consider investing in a cookie franchise at Great American Cookies. If you haven’t seriously considered investing in a franchise, then the following are a few reasons why you should take a closer look at a Great American Cookies cookie franchise:
1. You’ll Be Selling Beloved and Innovative Products
How many people do you know who don’t like cookies? If you’re going to invest in a business, it’s a good idea to invest in a business whose products you enjoy. Great American Cookies is known for its tasty cookie recipes and for constantly creating innovative and delicious new treats, from flavors like Strawberry Crinkle to Cookie Cakem Double Doozies and many more.
It’s worth mentioning that Great American Cookies bakes its cookies fresh in-store, whereas most cookie businesses typically ship frozen cookie dough and wafers. Great American Cookies never freezes its dough—it bakes cookies fresh throughout the day and makes cookies to order. You’ll not only be selling cookies that are delicious, you’ll also be selling a product that you can stand behind with pride.
2. You’ll Be Investing in an Established Franchise
Starting a business from scratch can be incredibly risky—most new business fail within a year. However, Great American Cookies is a well-known brand name, which means you’ll have a good chance of not only surviving but also growing and expanding your business. And as far as franchises go, Great American Cookies is one of the best. Entrepreneur has named it the number-one Baked Goods Franchise for six years running.
3. You’ll Be Given Strong Support
Most franchises provide some support to their franchisees—they are invested in their franchisees’ success. However, Great American Cookies goes above and beyond in terms of supporting its franchisees. As an investor in Great American Cookies, you’ll be provided with ongoing marketing and PR support, extensive franchisee training through GFG University, and operations consultations with franchise business consultants.
4. Finding the Money to Invest Won’t Be as Hard as You Think
First, obtaining financing is a lot easier for a franchise than for starting your own business. Lenders understand that investing in a franchise means that you’ll have strong support that makes it a lot less likely that you’ll fail. This means that as long as you have a positive financial history, you can obtain financing at relatively good terms. If you don’t want to go through your bank, you’ll find that most franchises have financing options.
In addition to being able to obtain financing relatively easily, it won’t cost you that much to invest in a Great American Cookies franchise. Investing will cost you much less than it would to open up your own business, and a Great American Cookies franchise costs less than most other franchises. For example, you could invest in several Great American Cookies franchises for the cost of one standard fast food franchise.
