Selling Cookies With The Girl Scouts – Not Necessarily The News
Tootie "Tagalong"s with the Girl Scouts to learn the art of cookie selling in this edition of "Not Necessarily The News."
"Hey! I'm Tootie Landry and this is what I found out today!
Girl Scout cookies are definitely an icon of American culture. Since the Girl Scouts are celebrating their 100th year birthday, I thought I would tag along this past Saturday with 3 young scouts.
Anne Marie, Regan and Taylor graciously allowed me to see first hand their business skills. Folks, these girls are serious about their "Thin Mints" and "DoSiDos !" Between the 3 of them, they have sold over 350 boxes of cookies this year!
As customers began to grab boxes of cookies, these girls would rapidly use their multiplication skills and fire out a total! They even took credit cards.
I think I'm out of my league here and I'm the "Tagalong!" This is more like Operation "Samoas!"
So how did this cookie business all begin? It started in Muskogee, Oklahoma, in a high school cafeteria as a service project. This cookie empire has now grown to a $700 million dollar empire. And Girl Scouts are now the 8th most popular non-profit organization in America.
And finally, I couldn't help but notice each time a box of cookie were sold, the girls replied "Thank You Berry Much!" And I'm Tootie Landry and this is " Not Necessarily the News!"
