New Girl Scouts App Helps You Find Cookies
A new Girl Scouts app has made cookie sales high-tech. The new app helps you find cookies using your iPhone and Android devices.
The free app allows cookie aficionados to find the nearest cookie booth and meet the 16 cookie varieties for sale. It also provides tips on how to interact with the Girl Scouts.
The $790 million Girl Scout cookie operation, the largest girl-led business in the world, allows potential buyers to search for the nearest cookie booths on its website. Amanada Hamaker, manager of product sales, said the app was a “natural extension.”
“This is important, because according to consumer surveys, the No. 1 reason cited for not purchasing Girl Scout Cookies is potential consumers don’t encounter a Girl Scout during the local sales period,” Hamaker told ABCNews.com.
The app requires only a few clicks before cookie lovers are put in touch with a list of the nearest places to buy Thin Mints, Samoas or whatever other cookies they’re craving.
