In-Person Sales

This year presents the opportunity to get creative and crush your cookie goals! We've talked to seasoned cookie volunteers, sellers and families to gather these ideas to help your girl be successful in her cookie business.

Porch Delivery/ Pick-Up
Through Digital Cookie girls can sell online and deliver cookies (once approved by parents) to customers by leaving them on their porch.

Girls should always deliver with an adult, and confirm with the customer the delivery date and location where to leave the cookies.

Cookie "Lemonade" Stands
Encourage families to set up lemonade style stands in their driveways or entrance to their neighborhood.  

Consider doing this for evening commuters, or after-school crowds. Remember, never let a girl go up to a car, and make sure to have an adult with girls at all times.

Cookie "Yard Sale" Signs
Host a drive-by cookie booth sale in your driveway or neighborhood park.  Put out "cookie sale" signs at major intersections to let customers know how to find you. This is a great idea to host on a Saturday morning.

Make "cookie sale" signs with your Digital Cookie URL, or a QR code for drivers to order cookies on the go.

Get out in your neighborhood with cookies to increase your sales! With cookies in hand, girls can take contactless payment in the Digital Cookie app.

To avoid face-to-face selling consider leaving a doorknob order card with your Digital Cookie URL, or QR code for customers to order.

Create a Cookie Mobile
Families can have a lot of fun decorating their cars to let customers know they have cookies. Use car magnets, car chalk or even removable vinyl and get creative.

Don't forget to put your Digital Cookie URL or a QR code somewhere for customers to order online.   

Drive Thru or Curbside Cookie Booths
Perfect for popular parking lots, drive thru cookie booths give customers the ease of purchasing cookies without leaving their cars! This open-air idea gives girls the opportunity to sell cookies and take contactless payment through the Digital Cookie app. Make sure to discuss safety guidelines and never let a girl approach a car.

Girl Scout Cookie Booths - Feb. 10 - March 12

Girl Scout Cookie Booths start on February 10, and run for four weekends, concluding March 12 with National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend on March 3rd-5th*.  *National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend dates changed from original February dates due to cookie supply issues.

Ask your troop leaders about setting up a cookie booth to reach your cookie goal even faster!

Troop to Troops Military Donations

The Troop to Troops (T2T) program provides a perfect opportunity to send cookies to our military men and women who are protecting our freedom. Cookies are sent to our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters who are putting their lives on hold to protect the freedoms dear to us all.  This is a great way to grow your cookie sales and support our military troops!

When girls take orders, they simply ask customers if they would like to donate boxes of cookies to be sent overseas to our military.  If the customer wishes to purchase some, they indicate this in the white column on the girl order form.  Customers do not specify flavors.  

If a customer wants certain cookies sent to a specific soldier, they need to purchase them and mail them to the soldier of their choice.  Girl Scouts Heart of the South does not have control over where the cookies are sent once they are delivered to the military.

Use these printable resources to promote your Troop to Troops program:
