    Online Cookie Sales?

    Advertisement



    So I'm sitting here thinking and an idea poped up; I wan't to see if anyone would buy cookies online. I figure lots of people buy flowers online for gifts to be sent around the world, so why can't I make a nice decorated package with cookies.

    I figure shipping would be around $10 since people don't want stale cookies and overnight would be a must then, and I'd sell packages of various cookies and prices from say $5 to $100 for a large party box; orders above $50 I'd probably offer free shipping. No one seems to be doing it yet, and I figure if theres interest I can have it launched in about a week with minimal investment since pratically every brick and mortor place has cookies that I could buy before repacking it in a nice box and shipping it to whoever wants them.

    So whats your thought? Feel free to reply on here or PIN me if you want too.

    I haven't managed to find anyone that just sells packaged cookies,you could go on amazon and order some but they seem to be the same type you can get in most stores. They don't have variety packs or perhaps a bag of cookies with a flower and a note that says you're sorry.

    Edit: cherylandco.com does it.

    Yeah, competition may be an issue but thats what makes business fun. I think I'll have to make the cookies in house rather than buying them elsewhere to keep cost down and have a different product.

    coconut cookies?
    The above commentary is for entertainment purposes only. If this was actual joke the tone you just heard would have been followed by emergency response information. It's supposed to be fun people.

    They have physical locations in many places, but you can do all of your ordering online. My aunt sent me a cookie boquet after I had my daughter and man were they yummy!

    Your cookies are going to have to be unique which isn't to say there not but if your taking on a pre-establish brand you have to be able to do something better then they can either by going with an exisiting brand, cheaper, quicker or some other type of incentive. I like the Girl Guides idea because you can't get them in your local grocery store or at least not here and its pre-established brand. You should find out what Nabisco and Dare do with their broken cookies and sell them at a discount.
