F.A.Q.

--------------

What is the next step?

The first step to opening the doors on this exciting opportunity begins with you filling out your Online Franchisee Application.

When do I get a copy of the Franchise Agreement?

Upon filling out a franchise application we will email you the complete Uniform Franchise Offering Circular (UFOC) that includes the Cookie Advantage Franchise Agreement.  Upon receiving these documents does not constitute an offer or sale of a franchise.

What is the Royalty Fee?

Again, many franchises royalty fee is much larger than Cookie Advantages. Ours is currently set at 6%.

What is the Initial Franchise Fee?

Unlike most franchise opportunities, Cookie Advantage has a very low franchise fee of only $29,500. Since our franchise fee is so low, it enables most of our franchisees to get started right away.

How is the Territory determined?

Included in the Franchise Application is a territory request. A Cookie Advantage management team representative will be happy to visit with you about available territories.

Unlike many other franchise companies, we do not choose your location. Instead, our professional management staff will work with you to determine your needs and help you find a suitable territory.

Do I have to be in the franchise every day?

Cookie Advantage is a hands-on, owner operated business that you have to run. The Franchise is not a passive investment. We expect our Franchisees to take an ongoing, active role in their Franchise, but you do not have to be in the bakery all the time.

What is Intro Day?

Intro Day is the opportunity for potential franchisees and Cookie Advantage management to learn more about each other at Cookie Advantage headquarters in Tulsa, Oklahoma. During your visit you will meet the owners of Cookie Advantage. You will also have the opportunity to tour our bakery facility and watch daily operations. pics

How are retail prices determined?

  • Cookie Advantage offers suggested retail prices on all of the items in our system. However, each locations retail prices are ultimately determined by the individual Franchisee, who is free to adjust prices to meet local market conditions.

There are many variables to consider, including the time of year, market demographics, known regional customer preferences and current market trends .

After the Franchise is opened, corporate staff works very closely with our franchisees in recommending inventory for your franchise. As your comfort level and your knowledge of your customers ordering trends, you will find yourself relying more on your experience to make purchasing decisions from our recommended vendor list.
