Miles of smiles

There’s nothing like a cookie for putting a smile on your face! From that simple truism comes a philosophy that drives success across the Cookie Time franchisee network.

We’re proudly New Zealand made, owned and operated, with an enviable portfolio of treats and functional foods for every occasion. Our much-loved brands include Cookie Time, OSM, Bumper and Em’s Power Cookies & Bars. We bring to life our company vision – a taste for every occasion, a smile on every face – with a sense of humour and a ‘serious about service’ attitude.

Our business model is all about relationships and customer satisfaction. In short, we deliver smiles, every day. And, with the Cookie Time network named New Zealand’s best FMCG distributor by overall satisfaction, across all stores, it’s a proven investment.

Live your boss life

We have a select number of rare opportunities to become a franchisee, with runs available in Northland, Bay of Plenty, Gisborne and Dunedin. Our average franchisee tenure is 10+ years, so these opportunities don’t come up often. When they do, there are lots of good reasons to join us.

We’re thrilled to be New Zealand’s Most Trusted Cookies brand for the third year running. And to take a giant leap up the overall Most Trusted Brands rankings – to #10, from #20 last year. Across our wider portfolio, we’re delighted that OSM is the winner of the inaugural Most Trusted Functional Sports Bar category.

Cookie Time franchisees operate in a stable industry, with established customers plus growth potential. Our franchisees get the best of both worlds – business ownership plus support from a family owned company. We’ve got strong systems, iconic products and a great reputation. And you get the satisfaction of success that reflects your own efforts, plus no ongoing fees.

When you join us, we train you in everything you need to know. Whilst FMCG industry experience would be a bonus, what we really value are effective communicators with a growth mindset and a passion for genuine interactions.

Put yourself in the driving seat

Cookie Time was founded in February 1983 with the delivery of 70 jars of Cookie Time Original™ Chocolate Chunk cookies to 70 Christchurch stores. Entrepreneurship and innovation are in company’s DNA, and new product innovation is ongoing.

All Cookie Time products are proudly New Zealand made, and the company is committed to sustainable business practices. Giving back is also important, through ongoing support for KidsCan and other charity partners, and for the Cookie Time Charitable Trust, with more than $2 million raised to date to help New Zealand children discover their gifts.

Every day is different for a Cookie Time franchisee, offering the chance to be your own boss, set your own schedule and go the extra mile for returns that reflect your best efforts.
