Frequently Asked Questions About Cookie Dough Fundraisers

Written 30 May, 2012 by Alan Lopez 0

There are lots of fundraiser companies that offer cookie dough fundraisers. Why should I choose Otis Spunkmeyer for my cookie dough fundraiser?

Fundraising campaigns with Otis Spunkmeyer are easy to sell because people are familiar and trust the brand that has been in business for over 30 years. This way fundraiser sellers aren't spending a ton of time trying to explain what they are trying to sell. Our pre-portioned frozen cookie dough is easy to make and convenient to store. Even people who can't or don't eat cookie dough can buy the frozen treat to make cookies for other people, so it really is a product that has no boundaries in regards to buyers.

Once I decide to begin a cookie dough fundraiser, how long should I let it run to maximize the most profits?

In general, a successful fundraiser should run for about two weeks. Since most families are busy during the week, it is important to allow for two full weekends during the fundraising campaign to make sure sellers have a chance to get to everyone they would like to. It is important to not let the fundraiser run too long, or participants may lose enthusiasm. 

Since not everyone may enjoy cookie dough, are there other products that I can sell along with the frozen cookie dough tubs?

Yes, we also offer brownies, pretzels and coffee cakes to round out the availability of products available for your fundraiser. To see the different products we offer, browse our extensive fundraising catalog.

Once I have decided to run a cookie dough fundraising campaign, how do I get started?

The best way to get started is to contact our fundraiser experts. Our experts will help you begin the process, and guide you to the very end of the campaign. Since a majority of our marketing and campaign flyers are online, you can easily print fundraiser information before the campaign actually kicks off. Doing this helps build excitement for the fundraising campaign and increases participation. 

How many fundraiser participants would I need to have a successful fundraiser?

There is no minimum amount of fundraiser participants to begin a fundraiser. Some people believe that the bigger the group of participants the greater profits that will be garnered. However, this is not the case. All you need is a few dedicated sellers and you may be able to have a very successful fundraiser campaign.

Once I have placed my final cookie dough fundraising campaign order, how do I receive the various tasty treats?

We will personally deliver your products to a designated location on a pre-determined date. (The best designated areas are large, open spaces that are protected from inclement weather). Upon arrival, we will work with your fundraising team to unload the frozen cookie dough and sort it into appropriate flavors. This aids your fundraising team in distributing the sold items to the proper sellers. Make sure all your sellers are aware of when pick-up is scheduled, so that the cookie dough is not left out of the freezer too long.
