Our Success In India
In 2000 we started our first international Cookie Man franchise in Chennai India. Since then we have expanded to 64 stores in 17 cities, including 10 of the biggest cities in India. The cookies are made using our recipes that have been refined over 60 years and baked using our auto bake oven, allowing us to maintain the same premium quality and flavour found in our Australian stores.
Where The Stores
The license fee is variable depending on the country size and the potential number of outlets proposed over the licence term. This is a "once-up" payment which is very reasonable and covers the transfer of our intellectual property rights, know-how and expertise to the licensee. As a guideline, license fees range from $50,000 for smaller markets to $200,000 for larger, more developed markets.
Normally 10 years with an option for a further 10 years subject to a reasonable store opening and operational performance criteria.
1st Cookie machine purchase price: A$ 55,000 This price is delivery ex-works Sydney and current lead time to delivery is 4 months (subject to confirmation). At the present time, we have a special offer of $39,500 for the 1st Cookie Machine (subject to availability at the time)
There are a number of ways to source the cookie doughs required for the business. You can:
1) Purchase a Z arm mixer and, with our assistance and recipes, manufacture on site.
2) Purchase the cookie dough from Australia at a very favourable price.
3) Sub contract the manufacture to another party in your region (subject to verification by Cookie Man Australia).
We have found that the easiest and most economical way in the initial period is to purchase the dough from Australia, as the quality is guaranteed and you can focus exclusively on the success of the retail operation.
If you purchase the cookie dough from Australia, there is no ongoing royalty. If you decide to manufacture the cookie dough in country, then a 2% royalty on shop sales applies.
Whilst Cookie Man is a relatively simple operation, there is a lot to learn and we would expect that you would come to Australia for training. We in turn would provide assistance selecting the initial retail site, assist in shop design, provide the necessary operations and product manuals, R&D for local tastes, help with equipment sourcing plus provide initial on site training and assistance with the opening. Further, if you decide to manufacture the cookie doughs in country, you will need assistance with raw material sourcing, mixing, baking and frozen logistics.
