    Bennett Maxwell of Dirty Dough Franchise Opportunity Meets Franchise Interviews

    Bennett Maxwell of Dirty Dough Franchise Opportunity Meets Franchise Interviews

    We have a great show.  We are meeting with Bennett Maxwell, the Chairman of Dirty Dough. Dirty Dough uses centralized production with special machines to produce the world’s first 3-layer cookie. This technology also allows a franchise to open up at half the cost of the competition and half the labor while lowering ongoing costs. Other issues of waste, quality control, supply chain, etc., are handled on the corporate level, resulting in the simplest food franchise concept.

    Dirty Dough is growing rapidly and expanding across the country. Dirty Dough is a food franchise that specializes in unique and fun-to-eat cookies. Recipes are trademarked, meaning customers won’t find these flavors anywhere else. Dirty Dough stores are uniquely set up to be profitable in both large and small markets.

    With extremely low labor costs and high profit margins, their locations don’t need to sell as many cookies as our competitors to make the same profits. And selling these uniquely addicting cookies isn’t hard to do.
