Beef Stick Ordering Guide

How to order beef sticks

Calculate how much you need to order for your group by using our beef stick ordering guide.

Based on the size of your group, you can also estimate your profit potential. You will qualify for pricing discounts based on the size of your order. We suggest providing 1-2 totes to each student. Each tote contains 50 beef sticks.

To find out how many cases you should order, multiply the number of students in your group by the number of totes that you want them to sell. Then take that total and divide by 8, since there are 8 totes in a case.

Let’s look at an example. A sponsor with 56 students wants everyone to sell 1 tote each:

56 students x 1 tote / student = 56 totes
56 totes ÷ 8 totes / case = 7 cases

Since each tote contained 50 beef sticks, and there are 8 totes in a case, that means that 400 beef sticks / case x 7 cases = 2,800 total beef sticks would be sold. Each beef stick sells for $1.00, so the gross sale would be $2,800.00. The group would ended up making $1,120.00 because they'd receive 40% profit (See our beef stick pricing & profit table).

7 cases x 400 beef sticks / case = 2,800 beef sticks
2,800 beef sticks x $1.00 / beef stick = $2,800.00 gross sales
$2,800.00 x 40% profit = $1,120.00 profit

Use the chart below to help you project how much you can make based on how many students you have, and how much you want them to sell:
