What our Franchisees Say

No franchise model can succeed without strong franchisees. Here are a few short videos to show you what our franchisees have to say about owning a Cookie Cutters.

You should purchase a Cookie Cutters franchise because it's a low investment. It's a relatively easy operation to run. You can be a semi absentee owner. Multi-unit ownership is definitely a possibility and you get a great return on your investment. It's a really cool concept that fits in an industry where there's not a ton of competition

Eric Gustafsson

"I love that the kids walk in here and they just love the place. They usually cry when they leave instead of crying when they come in! I know getting a haircut can be an ordeal so parents, when they can have their kid be excited to go to Cookie Cutters even though they don't need a haircut, that's awesome."

Tyler Stinson

"It's a very niche-based business. People take their kids to go get their hair cut because they need their hair cut. But a lot of salons don't know how to work with Children. They get impatient or they just don't have anything to distract the child. We have that all set up. Parents come in here and they're just amazed. We have a great mix. We offer braids and glitter for the girls. We also have nice pomade for the boys for a really cool style."

Ashley McDaniels

"They helped us find the correct location to open. They do have some pretty cool software that will go in and identify your competition as well as your immediate trade area and make sure that you're getting a location that's going to set you up for success. They were definitely helpful in making sure that the locations that we thought looked good were acually ideal for a Cookie Cutters Franchis."
