In 1986, the company began franchising stores in selected markets.

In 1986, Blue Chip Cookies opened a store in Cincinnati, Ohio, a result of the city's efforts to market its nickname, "Blue Chip City".cite news|title=Cookie firm swallows parent|author=Lauren Lawley|first=Lauren|last=Lawley|work=Cincinnati Business Courier|publisher=American City Business Journals|date=1998-07-17|accessdate=2008-06-08|url=http://cincinnati.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/stories/1998/07/20/story5.html] cite news|url=http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m3092/is_n11_v27/ai_6387266|title=Cincinnati: many discounters say it's a 'blue chip' investment|work=Discount Store News|date=1988-05-23|accessdate=2008-01-21] In 1998, Blue Chip Cookies was purchased by Edgewood, Kentucky–based B.C.C. Enterprises, a rare example of a franchiser that had grown larger than the franchisee. Loveland, Ohio–based BDGS, LLC acquired Blue Chip Cookies in November 2005 and opened a new store in Historic Downtown Loveland the following year. In January 2007, Blue Chip Cookies resumed franchising with an updated UFOC.
