Great American Patriot Program   

Dedication, discipline, a great work ethic and the heart of a leader: service with the armed forces required these attributes to become a part of who you are and everything you do. That's why Great American  Cookies ® created the Great American Patriot Program, which includes a 40%discount on franchise fees for military veterans.  It's our way of saying thank you, a vote of confidence in your ability to succeed, and an invitation to create personal and financial freedom as a franchise owner.        


Share the Fun of Cookies!           

Great American Cookies takes pride in being the “Home of The Original Cookie Cake”. Founded in 1977, we were the 1st Cookie Franchise in the United States; in fact, we’ve been manufacturing our dough in the same plant for over 30 years. Our original chocolate chip cookie recipe was created by the grandmother of one of our founders. This proprietary recipe is still the basis of our cookies today. Great American Cookies offers fresh-baked cookies, made daily with hand-scooped batter. Whether it’s a Cookie Cake, a dozen, a few or just one, you can’t go wrong with a soft and delicious cookie or brownie from Great American Cookies.  We want you to share in the fun with us!
