Girl Scouts Partner With Grubhub for Cookie Deliveries During Pandemic
If you were worried about not being able to get your Girl Scout cookies this year then we’ve got some good news for you. The Girl Scouts have decided that for the first time ever they would partner with a food delivery program. They have contracted with Grubhub who will be delivering orders for the troops.
Because the pandemic has affected the way most things operate they had to come up with a plan to stay safe while still being able to make their project funds for the year. The Girl Scouts who have been known to come up with some very creative ways to get cookies into the hands of those who want them have found what seems to be the perfect solution.
“We’re proud of the resourceful ways Girl Scouts are running their cookie businesses safely and using their earnings to make the world a better place.”
“This season, our girls will continue to exemplify what the cookie program taught them — how to think like entrepreneurs, use innovative sales tactics and pivot to new ways of doing business when things don’t go according to plan.”Judith Batty, interim CEO of the Girl Scouts, said in a statement.
The San Francisco Gate shared this information:
Members of the Girl Scouts will track and fulfill orders and manage inventory using Grubhub’s back-end technology, the organization said. To promote the partnership, the Girl Scouts said, Grubhub will offer free delivery on cookie orders of at least $15 through Feb. 14. Orders can be placed on the Grubhub website or its delivery app.SFG
I also want to note that there are other ways to find cookies if you want them. On girlscouts.org they say that if you know a member you can check out their digital cookie platform. So if Grubhub doesn’t become available in your area there are still ways to go about getting them.
Personally I’m just happy that I’m still going to get my Samoas, Tagalogs and Thin Mints. And I will always have mad respect for that one girl scout who sold me 3 boxes of thin mints because she only had one on the table. “It’s the last one” she said then proceeded to pull out another from under the table. I stared at her as she did this in front of me and said “give me two more.” You HAVE to respect the hustle these girls have.
