Franchise Ownership

How can you own the Sweetest Franchise in Town?

We ask you to fill out the application and personal financial statement found in the Application section. We will review the application and the personal financial statement to determine your suitability as a franchisee.

Beginning Interview
If our review of your application is favorable, you will be contacted by a Cookies by Design representative to discuss your interest in operating your own location. At this time we will outline the possibilities available to you as a franchisee, as well as answer any questions you may have.

Disclosure Document
Following the successful completion of the interview, a Franchise Disclosure Document will be sent to you. After reviewing these documents, you and the Cookies by Design representative will begin discussing the details of the Franchise Agreement, including your territory.

Discovery Day
After reviewing and discussing the franchise agreement a Discovery Day will be scheduled to give the franchise candidate the opportunity to meet face to face with the Cookies by Design corporate staff and executives to ask any questions and insure compatibility.

Once you and Cookies by Design have made the decision to enter into a Franchise Agreement, a completed Franchise Agreement will be sent to you for your execution. The initial franchise fee is due upon execution of the Agreement.
