About Millie’s Cookies
Millie’s Cookies was founded 1985 opening its first store on Oxford Street, London. Ever since it has been a pleasurable delight for millions of people across the world, baking cookies on site every day. The fresh “just-out-of-the-oven” smell and “chewy, soft in the middle, crunchy on the outside” bite is still what makes Millie’s Cookies the most heart warming, generous treat.
Millie’s Cookies is also about natural ingredients: all of the cookies are made with Millie’s ‘know how’ using only premium natural flavours, no hydrogenated fats, artificial sweeteners or additives.
Today Millie’s Cookies have 108 stores within the UK offering not only freshly prepared cookies, but also muffins, cakes, ice-creams, smoothies, shakes, hot chocolate, tea and coffee.
The chance to run your own successful Millie’s Franchise has now become more achievable with Millie’s Cookies new expansion plans. Every day we are receiving enquiries from interested parties for Development Agreements ranging from 5 or 6 outlets in a specified area, up to full Country Development plans across the globe.
Millie’s Cookie’s is part of the SSP Group which has over 60 years of experience in the Hospitality Industry giving potential Franchisees confidence in the wealth of expertise available.
The Millie’s Cookies training programme is over a 10-day period and is carried out by one of their brand experts who will share all aspects of the brand with the trainees in a working Millie’s store. You will get hands-on experience from day one in a real Millie’s environment engaging with Millie’s customers and understanding what makes their product and brand so special.
You will learn about the brand, health and safety, brand standards, how to bake, brew and shake, how to manage shifts to match business needs, how to train your staff into understanding operational and food standards, marketing, planning and at the end of the 10-day period you will be able to run one of our stores on your own!
We will assess you all the way through the process to ensure you have achieved our standards. We will support you if you need more training and you will always have a point of contact to ask questions if you need help in the future.
Millie’s Cookies operates both a kiosk and an “in line” store format, both occupying a small footprint. It trades under A1 license which means there is no need for extraction or other expensive infrastructure or equipment.
The Millie’s Cookies support extends to site selection: as a franchisee, you will benefit from our contacts in real estate, our assistance in location assessment, design and fit out to make sure you get your most important business decision right and you maximize the return on your investment.
