1/15/21 - Based on comfort level, a girl can begin selling in person. Selling door to door, to family and friends, teammates, and beyond, asking her network of contacts is a great way to get started! Our Cookie Mix Calculator will help you know what Cookies to have on hand to meet the demand.
1/15/21 - Have you ever seen a Girl Scout selling cookies at your favorite neighborhood restaurant? That's called a Cookie Booth Sale! Girls and their families can work with their Troop Cookie Manager to set up family booth sales as a new way to reach more customers. Girls should follow all state and local precautions including wearing a mask and gloves.
1/29/21 - Girls can participate in Troop Booth Sales and Council Booth Sales with local partners like grocery stores and more. Council Booth Sale locations are secured by Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas and troops can sign up for slots in eBudde, our Cookie Program software. Proceeds from these booth sales benefit the troop and helps to fund Girl Scout adventures!

Check out our Juliette Quick Start Guide below!
