Cookies by Design Franchise


How can you own the sweetest franchise in town?

We are delighted that you are interested in owning a Cookies by Design franchise! We will work with you on every step of the process to ensure a successful launch of your business.


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

Beginning Interview

Once we determine that you are financially qualified and a good fit for Cookies by Design, 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, we will invite you to a Discovery Day at Cookies by Design’s corporate office to give you the opportunity to meet face to face with the leadership team to ask any questions and ensure compatibility.


Once you have made the decision to move forward to opening a shop, a completed franchise agreement will be sent to you for your execution. The initial franchise fee is due upon execution of the agreement.

Evolution of Your Location

This is where the excitement really begins! After receiving your executed franchise agreement, your Cookies by Design representative will begin assisting you with the various steps of the site development process, including:

  • Choosing a location - We will send you information to assist you in locating a site for your store.
  • Location Design - Our franchise department will assist you throughout the planning and construction process by providing answers to your construction questions, referrals to suppliers, and assisting you in scheduling the opening of your store. All construction must be preapproved.
  • Purchasing equipment - Included in the pre-opening manual you will find a listing of major equipment needed, including detailed specifications, vendor names, and estimated prices.
  • Initial staffing and marketing  - We will develop along with you a strategic hiring and marketing plan for your new location.

Final Preparation

You will attend Cookie College® in Plano, Texas to learn how to operate and market your Cookies by Design location. This training course, which includes both production and operational training, is a hands on course designed to prepare you for operating a Cookies by Design shop.
