For Cookie Entrepreneurs
When you participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, you're doing
more than just helping your customers stock up on delicious treats
(and having lots of fun). You're doing it with a goal in mind. Whether
that goal is a pizza party, a community project, or your first
overnight trip with your troop, you know how many packages you need to
make it happen.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program® prepares girls with the business smarts they need to take on the world! Find out more about our cookies, how the cookie crumbles, cookie recipes, and more on our About Girl Scout Cookies page.

Supporting Your Girl Scout
Digital Cookie is the customizable order-taking website for Girl Scout Cookies. Girls personalize their individual pages with their goals and share their pages with potential customers. Customers can either pay for shipping or have the Girl Scouts they purchase from deliver their orders. After setting up their profiles from their web pages, girls can use the Digital Cookie mobile app to check their goal progress, access safety and selling tips, place new orders for customers, and share their site URLs via email.

How Customers Purchase Cookies
Your customers are looking forward to enjoying Girl Scout cookies just as much as ever. Girl Scout entrepreneurs are reminded to follow the layered precautions outlined on our COVID safety page. Guidance on this page is subject to change based on state and local regulations. This page will be kept up-to-date and any significant change will be announced by email.
Find out how you can reduce risk during standabouts, door-to-door, and booth marketing:
- Practice social distancing to the extent possible at all locations. Set standabouts and booths up for success by using barriers, or arranging tables to increase distance.
- Wear properly-fitting masks indoors and outdoors when marketing cookies in person.
- Host booth locations with a maximum of 2 girls and 2 adults per door. Most booth locations have one door; find details in the eBudde notes.
- Let caregivers determine if their Girl Scout is comfortable participating in booths. If a girl or family does not feel a situation is safe, honor that.
- Let girls lead booth planning in an age-appropriate way. Girl Scouts should discuss and understand safety requirements that will enable the troop to stay as safe as possible.
- Encourage digital payment.
- Have hand sanitizer available at booths. Ensure it is used after all cash transactions.
- Post signage asking booth customers to wear a mask. A Girl Scout-created reminder poster is a great motivator!
- Consider using painter’s tape to make social distancing markers that discourage congestion in high-traffic booth locations.
- Empower booth volunteers and caregivers to step in if customers object to safety measures.
Start the cookie season off at a service unit cookie kickoff! These virtual celebrations are a great way to kick off the cookie program. Through different activities, girls will get excited about the cookie program and learn how to develop the 5 Skills essential to leadership, success, and life: goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
