Yes, we sell to individuals. We ask for the name of the organization they or you originally bought our products from so we can continue to help that group raise money. Little Ol’ Cookie House donates $3.00 to that specific organization for every item sold through our website.
Yes, we do have minimum order quantities. If you pick up at our plant in Little River, KS the minimum number of cases is 10 (60 tubs). Our minimum quantities vary by state and region (call us for specifics for your area) but the minimum we ship is 13 cases (78 tubs).
We can ship anywhere in the Continental USA excluding Hawaii and Alaska. Contact us and we will be happy to send an info pack specific to your location and group size. This will include all pricing info.
We certainly do. We Pre-pack (or Pre-sort as some call it) by seller, by classroom, or however you want. This is a great time and labor saver for organizations. The cookie dough orders are delivered already packed by seller so it is much easier to distribute. In addition, we provide a comprehensive computer analysis of the fundraiser, providing information on sales by student, by classroom (teacher), ranking by dollar volume, etc. This is a great tool in improving sales the next time you do a fundraiser. Call 1-800-276-4770 for more pricing details.
As everyone knows, you can buy bad tasting or inferior chocolate and you can buy great tasting chocolate. Of course, the price you pay for fine chocolate is at least 2 to 3 times more expensive. It’s the same with all the ingredients – you get what you pay for. For instance, we buy our Macadamia nuts from Hawaii or Australia. There is simply no comparison in taste—Hawaiian and Australian Macadamia nuts are tasty and cost 2-3 times more than the others, which are virtually tasteless. It’s the same story with pecans, raisins, chocolate (chunks are much more expensive than chips), peanut butter, oatmeal, flour, sugar—quality costs more but pays off in luscious, exquisite, irresistible, tantalizing, just downright delicious cookies! The kind people want to buy again and again.
Our recipes have all been developed and refined over the years by our founder and owner, Carolyn Wright. They are fundamentally the same she made at home for her family and friends—just made these days in much larger quantities (1,200 lbs per batch).
Incentive Programs really work…and we offer three different incentive programs to our customers. They can increase your sales and profits 25%, 50%, 100% and more. Incentive programs create excitement, increase participation, generate “incremental” profits and reward individuals for a job well done. Kids love ‘em!
There are two keys:
1. The higher the percentage of group participation the more successful you will be – try for 100% participation,
2. The higher the average number of tubs sold per seller the better your results will be – the average is 8 to 10 tubs per seller but about half of our groups exceed this number and you probably can too.
Call us. We will send you an information pack that is specific to your location and group size. This will help you decide what price to sell at and help set goals for your group. Included will be our incentive programs.
Lightly grease or spray your baking sheet—or use pan liners.
We recommend baking the cookies between 10 and 12 minutes at 350 degrees. Since optimum time can vary, depending on your oven, temperature of the dough, altitude, etc., it’s a good idea to check at about 9 minutes. Remove from oven when cookies are light brown around the edges and allow to cool.
