cookies are the bottom line for girl scouts

Girl Scouts is about teaching leadership, confidence, and community. It’s also about teaching salesmanship, bottom lines, and supply chains. Hawking deserts is a $700 million business, and cookies account for two-thirds of the organization’s budget.

The article goes on to discuss how, this year, Girl Scouts cookies will be sold in fewer varieties in an effort to economize costs.

In Canada (and the UK) we have Girl Guides, dating back to the turn of the century. I’ll be reporting on my first ever involvement with cookie sales later in the year.
