About Us

Great American Cookies became an instant retail phenomenon in 1977 when the first store opened in Atlanta, Georgia’s Perimeter Mall. Founded on the strength of a generations-old family chocolate chip cookie recipe, the company eventually set the standard for gourmet cookie sales in shopping centers nationwide.

From one store and one recipe, Great American Cookies expanded in malls across the country and at the same time developed a complete line of cookies and brownies, including our signature Cookie Cake product, making it one of the best cookie companies in the industry. By putting only the finest, fresh-baked goodies in our stores, Great American Cookies has set the stage for success.

Being the biggest cookie company has never been the objective at Great American Cookies. Our goal was simply to bake the best cookies ever made. However, by maintaining pride in service as well as providing the public with a delicious and appealing line of products, Great American Cookies became a leader in the snack food industry.

All of the cookies and brownies at Great American Cookies start with carefully tested recipes, highly controlled production and the finest premium ingredients from our batter facility in Atlanta, Georgia. The end result is the best possible fresh-baked products at an affordable price. From our signature Cookie Cakes to our sinfully rich brownies, Great American Cookies takes the time to do it right.

Our mission statement is simply: Share the Fun of Cookies ®
