For Cookie Sellers

There's so much more to Girl Scout Cookies than what’s in the box—there’s the magic that is you!

When you sell Girl Scout Cookies, you're doing more than helping your customers stock up on delicious treats (and having lots of fun). You have a goal in mind: to power life-changing programs, experiences, and learning for yourself and your troop all year long. Because no matter what obstacles may come your way, we know that you’ll face them with resiliency and creativity—it’s the Girl Scout way!

When you participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, you’re part of something even bigger than you, your troop, and all the amazing girls nationwide that sell too; you’re part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world! Having the opportunity to run your very own cookie business gives you skills essential for success today and in the future.

Ways to Participate

Get ready for your Girl Scouts to make (cookie) boss moves this year! No matter how they take part in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, they’ll grow their people skills, learn to set goals, make smart decisions, and so much more. Talk with them about which options they’re excited to explore this year!

Participating in the cookie program powers Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year as they learn key business skills to excel in future careers and in life. By participating in different sales methods, girls gain more skills, including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Don’t forget: adult supervision is required at all times. Troop proceeds are $0.70 per box sold.

Phone or Text Friends & Family

Is this your Girl Scout’s first time running her own cookie business? Texting or phoning friends and family is a great way to help her feel comfortable connecting with cookie customers. And if your seasoned cookie boss’s free time is limited—hello, school, sports, and extracurriculars!—this option has maximum flexibility.

Online,
Digital Cookie

Is your Girl Scout ready to take her digital marketing skills to the next level? With the Digital Cookie® platform, Girl Scouts can ship cookies straight to customers, accept orders for cookie donations, or have local customers schedule an in-person delivery. And she can reach her sales goals no matter what her schedule is like.

In-Person,
Door-to-Door

They’re the perfect way to hone her sales pitch! With door-to-door sales, Girl Scouts can stay local and sell in their neighborhoods—and use door hangers and business cards for customers who aren’t home. They’ll also grow their people skills by meeting new neighbors (with the necessary adult supervision, of course)

In-Person, Booth Sale

This option has maximum customer interaction, teamwork, and all the fun! Troops or groups of Girl Scouts work together to market their cookies outside a preapproved location (like a grocery store, bank, mall, or even a drive-through booth in a parking lot) where they can practice their business skills with new customers.
Note: cookie booths must be coordinated by troop cookie managers and approved by SU cookie managers.

In-Person, Stand-A-Bout

Would your Girl Scout feel more comfortable on her own turf? Cookie stands, similar to lemonade stands, are set up in front of a residence on private property, where she’ll market her cookies to customers in her neighborhood. They’re a great way to ease more introverted girls into connecting with their communities. This can be fun for the whole family!

Connecting
with The Community

The possibilities are endless! Girl Scouts team up with their parents/caregivers to sell cookies to their employees and coworkers, at places of worship, and at community groups. They could prepare a corporate pitch to sell cookies in bulk to car dealerships, real estate agents, or financial institutions. When these budding entrepreneurs secure a large sale, they get a taste of sweet success!
