Kicks off the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie season!

How to Safely Purchase Girl Scout Cookies This Season

By Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida February 15, 2021

Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida (GSSEF) kicks off the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie season with Girl

Scouts doing what they do best. Girls are putting on their thinking caps and selling in creative,

socially distant and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe. In light of

the COVID-19 pandemic, girls are adapting their sales methods to share the joy of Girl Scout

Cookies through the largest girl-led entrepreneurship program. They are hosting drive thru

cookie booths, putting up “lemonade stand” types of displays in their neighborhoods, using

door hangers to offer contactless porch deliveries and other creative solutions. A new way for

customers to satisfy their cookie craving this year is through a new national collaboration with

Grubhub allowing contact-free pickup and delivery orders.

Ordering Now Available Through Delivery Platform Grubhub

Starting February 18, GSSEF is participating in a national collaboration with food ordering and

delivery platform Grubhub so girls have an additional way to facilitate contact-free cookie

orders. In South Florida consumers can order Girl Scout Cookies for pickup or delivery on or the Grubhub app. A hands-on experience in managing e-commerce, girl will

track and fulfill orders, manage inventory and more, all using Grubhub’s back-end technology.

Just like with the other types of sales, the proceeds from the Grubhub sales benefit local Girl

Scouts while providing another innovative way to safely run the cookie program virtually.

Innovative Girl-led Sales Methods

The Girl Scout Cookie Program has long taught girls how to run a business via in-person booths,

door-to-door activity and the Digital Cookie platform online. For the past several years, GSSEF

has been using the Digital Cookie technology to enhance their cookie sale experience. It allows

customers to place an order for all of their favorite cookie varieties, pay for their order with a

credit card and choose one of two delivery options – either have the cookies shipped directly to

them or have their local Girl Scout deliver them. Girls can create and share a QR code that links

directly to their Digital Cookie site allowing for safe, easy cookie purchases.

Digital Cookie has enhanced girls’ ability to take their sale to the next level with both a mobile

app and a girl’s personalized website, putting control of the sale, from customer contact to

completion of the order, squarely in her hands. With the ability to provide contactless cookie

purchasing, girls still learn the entrepreneurship skills the Cookie Program is known for and

customers can feel good while safely supporting girls while purchasing their favorite Girl Scout

Cookies. And the proceeds from each and every purchase stay local to power Girl Scouts’

essential leadership programming.
