LUBBOCK, Texas – Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains kicks off the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie season January 15, during a challenging time when many Girl Scouts are selling in creative, socially distant, and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe. Even in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, girls are adapting their sales methods to share the joy of Girl Scout Cookies through the largest girl-led entrepreneurship program—including taking contact-free pickup and delivery orders through a new national collaboration with Grubhub.
Ordering Now Available Through Delivery Platform Grubhub
This season, Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains is participating in a national collaboration with food ordering and delivery platform Grubhub so girls have an additional way to facilitate contact-free cookie orders. In Lubbock, consumers can order Girl Scout Cookies for pickup or delivery on Grubhub.com or the Grubhub app. A hands-on experience in managing e-commerce, local Girl Scouts will track and fulfill orders, manage inventory, and more, all using Grubhub’s back-end technology. Check the Grubhub app for additional details. As always, the proceeds benefit the troop and council while providing another innovative way to safely run the cookie program virtually. Girl Scouts is grateful to Grubhub for waiving all fees for the organization to make this new delivery option feasible for sales without reducing troops’ and councils’ proceeds.
