Great American Cookies now open in Highland Village

A rebranded cookie shop reopened its doors in Highland Village on July 13 after a quick renovation.

FAT Brands, parent company of Great American Cookies among many other restaurant and dessert shop chains, purchased Nestlé shops from Crest Foods in May 2022. The company’s CEO said at the time that it would rebrand the 85 Nestlé Toll House Café locations around the country as Great American Cookie Shops.

An original tenant of the mall since 2007, the Nestlé Toll House Café at The Shops at Highland Village, 1400 Shoal Creek, Suite 100, closed its doors in May. After renovations were complete, the sweets shop reopened in July under the Great American Cookies brand. Customers can order custom cookie cakes or choose from one of their designs, as well as cookies, brownies and Blue Bell ice cream.

Owner Robyn Johnson said she’s happy to bring Great American Cookies to southern Denton County.

“I’d hear people say at other locations around DFW that they wanted us to move closer to this area,” Johnson said. “We’ve heard a lot of customers say they couldn’t wait for us to open.”

Johnson said the main difference between Nestlé and GAC is the freshness of the ingredients.

“Nestlé’s dough was frozen, but ours is fresh from a batter facility every two weeks,” she said.
