*We participate in the International Franchise Association’s Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative ("VetFran") program
to provide franchise opportunities to qualifying veterans. The purpose of the VetFran program is to honor those men and women who have served
in the U.S. military. The VetFran program was developed to help veterans transition to civilian life. VetFran is a voluntary effort of
International Franchise Association member-companies that is designed to encourage franchise ownership by offering financial incentives
to honorably discharged veterans.
Our VetFran program incentive is called the Great American Cookies Patriot Program. Our Great American Cookies Patriot Program incentive provides a 25%
reduction in the initial Franchise Fee due under our single unit Franchise Agreement for Traditional Stores only. This Incentive may not be combined
with any other Incentive program and applies only to the first Store. To qualify, a prospective franchisee must request the Patriot Program at the
time of application; must meet our then-current qualifications for new franchisees; the franchise must be at least 51% legally and beneficially owned
by persons meeting our qualifying veteran status; the prospective franchisee may not have previously received a Veterans Incentive or Patriot Program
Incentive from us. We may discontinue this Patriot Program at any time.
