6 Steps to Owning a Franchise with Cookie Plug

The process of owning a franchise is simple and straightforward with us.

Step 1 to Owning a franchise – CONNECT WITH US

Complete and submit our franchise application, which helps us to know more about you, your business background and experience, financial capabilities, and goals. A Cookie Plug development representative will review the application and determine if you and your proposed market meet our qualifications. The development coordinator will also provide you with an overview of the process and discuss next steps.

Step 2 to Owning a franchise – Getting to know you

The “getting to know you call” is exactly that. This is an opportunity for us to share our stories and determine if there is an initial fit. We will answer any questions you may have and get a better understanding of your goals and timeline.

Step 3 to Owning a franchise – Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) review

Upon completion of a successful interview, a copy of our FDD will be provided to you for review. This contains information about our company, business model and every aspect of our business relationship with our franchise owners. The FDD will also include a copy of the franchise agreement.

Step 4 to Owning a franchise – Discovery Day
