Great American Cookies, managed by GFG Management LLC, has launched its Great American Patriot Program, designed to help members of the armed forces own a franchise business. The program, available to qualifying veterans from all branches of the U.S. Military, includes a 15 percent discount on Great American Cookies franchise fees.

The program kicks off with a series of free online webinars through September hosted by GFG executives including Dan Benton, director of International Development. Benton, a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, is a 34-year veteran of the U.S. Army, retiring at the rank of Lieutenant General. He has worked to grow GFG Management's franchise brands both domestically and internationally for more than 11 years.

The webinars will last approximately 30 minutes. A full schedule and signup information is available online.

"The men and women of our armed forces bring an unparalleled skill set to small business," said Chris Dull, president & CEO of GFG Management LLC. "We're excited to launch this new program just for service members and we look forward to introducing the Great American Cookies concept to a new group of passionate franchisees."

Great American Cookies is also currently supporting the Yellow Ribbon Fund Inc. through the brand's first ever summer Yellow Ribbon Campaign. Founded in 2005, the Yellow Ribbon Fund provides assistance, including transportation and lodging, for injured service members and their families from across the country while they recuperate at designated military medical facilities. Through Sept. 16, Great American Cookies is donating $2 from the online sale of every Yellow Ribbon, Uncle Sam Hat and U.S. Flag Cookie Cake to the organization.
