Join a franchise company that believes in providing excellent support to local communities and charitable organizations. As a Great American Cookies franchisee, you will support neighborhood schools and charitable fundraising efforts. To further support our troops, Great American Cookies also donates a percentage of the proceeds from the online sale of patriotic cookie cakes to the Yellow Ribbon Fund. This program provides assistance to recovering injured service members and their families.

*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.
