Cookies and Cream

Cookies and ice cream are two of the most popular desserts in America, and each of our brands is proud to create fresh goodies made with high quality ingredients. The result? Treats that our customers love! Co-branding Great American Cookies and Marble Slab Creamery means you will be the owner of two different franchises – but it doesn’t mean double the investment or the work.

It means you’ll be able to enjoy the many benefits that come from working with these two outstanding brands. Take a break from thinking about business for just a moment and imagine how delicious it would be to sandwich Marble Slab’s fresh ice cream between two of Great American Cookies’ homemade cookies for what might be the most delicious ice cream sandwich of all time!
