Is Your Troop Girl Scout Cookie Booth Sale Ready?

Girl Scout Cookie Booth Sales are now through March 31. Whether you are brand new to the Girl Scout Cookie program and booth sales, or a seasoned veteran, here are some important tips to be booth sale ready.
  • Smile, and be friendly and polite. Girls should greet potential customers in a welcoming way, and should pay attention to the booth sale, customers and surroundings. No yelling or loudly calling out to customers.
  • Girls should wear attire that shows they’re a Girl Scout. A Girl Scout Vest, Sash or Daisy Smock are all great options. Not only can they be worn over a jacket, they showcase all adventures your Girl Scout troop has gone on, and all that your troop has learned.  
  • Keep the table neat and clean, with signage and the cookie varieties on display. An organized cookie box display allows customers to see what is available. A good booth will also display signage that clearly identifies the booth as a Girl Scout Cookie Booth and include price, your troop number and cookie goals. No food or drink on the selling table. 
  • Have at least two, but no more than six girls present, and have there appropriate adult supervision. Remember to check Safety Activity Check points for the appropriate coverage amount. No Tag-Alongs at the table.
  • Make an Operation Cookie or troop Gift of Caring Jar to have on display for your  customers to see. 
  • Girl Scouts at a Cookie booth sale should know about the Girl Scout Cookie Program and Girl Scout Cookie variety, including information about Operation Cookie and your troop’s Gift of Caring donation programs. Girls should also be able to explain what their troop plans to do with their troop proceeds. 
  • Remember: Girls should always say “thank you” to potential customers.
