America's Variety Candy Bar Ordering Guide

How to order America’s Variety candy bars

Trying to decide how many candy bars to order? Our America’s Variety candy bar ordering guide takes into account the size of your group and what your profit goal is. A volume discount is also a factor, so larger orders can mean a higher profit percentage for your group.

Most students can sell at least 1 carrier. So to calculate how many cases you’ll need, since there are 4 carriers in a case, divide the number of students in your group by 4.

For example, a sponsor with 40 students who each sell 1 carrier would need to order 10 cases:

1 carrier/student x 40 students = 40 carriers
40 carriers ÷ 4 carriers / case = 10 cases

Thus our sample group would make $1,080 profit by selling the candy bars for $1.00 each making 45% profit (See our America's Variety pricing & profit table).

10 cases x 240 candy bars / case = 2,400 candy bars
2,400 candy bars x $1.00 / candy bar = $2,400.00 gross sales
$2,400.00 x 45% = $1,080.00 profit

Use the following chart as a guide to set your profit goal based on the number of students in your group and how many carriers you want each student to sell:
