Why Do a Home Delivery Cookie Dough Fundraiser?

A unique way to sell cookie dough

Cookie dough is like chocolate. Everyone is familiar with it and we all love it. Thus, it's a consistent money maker for school groups across the country.

And because people enjoy it, cookie dough won’t stay in the refrigerator for long. This is why groups can continue to sell it year after year.

Many companies make and sell cookie dough. But only one brand stands out above the rest, Otis Spunkmeyer. Just say the name and people already know about the superior quality and unique taste. There's nothing quite like it.

But cookie dough is a frozen food product, and shipping can be expensive. Thus companies have certain order requirements. Delivery can also be an issue. Anyone who's done a cookie dough fundraiser knows how important it is to get people to pick up their order.

But what if you could have a completely carefree delivery? Is that even possible with cookie dough? Here are some of the benefits to consider with a home delivery cookie dough fundraiser.

Sell Cookie Dough Online

People don't have to order cookie dough from a student; they can actually do it online. Students can invite people to shop online instead.

Using social media, email or text, students can send out a link that directs people to the school's store. Then at their convenience, supporters can place their order. Customers pay a shipping fee to have their order delivered to them.

This eliminates school and student deliveries. And students don't need to turn in order forms or money. Learn about our online cookie dough fundraiser

Direct Delivery to Home or Work

Think about it. Your students aren’t handling the cookie dough, only the gift card. All they need to do is turn in their order forms and money envelopes at the end of the sale. The money is collected up front just like with any other brochure sale. At delivery you only receive the gift cards to hand out to your students.

An Easy Fundraiser Delivery

Since you won’t receive any cookie dough, your delivery is greatly simplified. Gift cards don’t take up much space, and they can’t break or melt. All you would need to do is distribute the cards to your students.

Shelf-Stable Cookie Dough

Many school fundraising companies offer what’s called shelf-stable cookie dough. This means that the cookie dough has been tested and approved to be left at room temperature, normally between 66 and 77 degrees Fahrenheit, for a certain period of time. This adds some degree of shipping and delivery flexibility. Once received, we recommend refrigerating the cookie dough.

Is a home delivery cookie dough fundraiser right for every group? Maybe not, but if you’re thinking about a cookie dough fundraiser at all, it’s worth considering.
