Having the right product is an essential part of making the most of your fundraising efforts, but you may not be putting as much thought into where you sell your products. There are some less obvious places to sell candy that are underused and could help make your group a lot of profit. Most areas with a lot of foot traffic will work really well in helping you sell for your fundraiser.
Here are some places that are worth trying that you may not have considered:
If there is an occasional farmer’s market in your community, it would be a place filled with civically minded shoppers who would be eager to help your cause.
Take Candy to a Workplace
You would be surprised at how much candy you can sell without even asking. Employees are usually looking for an afternoon snack or something to eat with their lunch, and people like being able to help. Customers in the building may want to help too if they see candy at the register or in a waiting room.
We have candy and snacks in our Choco Blast Variety.
Outside of Walmart Stores
This deserves its own category. There is so much traffic around a Walmart that you can almost always be able to make a profit with a well-presented fundraiser, and Walmart stores are typically happy to allow fundraisers to set up outside. Be sure to contact a manager beforehand to get permission and a suggestion of a good time for you and the store.
Outside of a movie theater
This is a place where people are already anticipating eating candy, and there can be excellent foot traffic at the right time of day or on the premiere weekend of a popular movie. You will also need to contact a manager ahead of time for permission and time slots that will work well for the theater.
Old Fashion Candy has Theater Size candy in our Monster Variety.
If you have students selling, residents may be happy to see young people and eager to help your cause. Of course, student sellers should be instructed to be polite and respectful.
A Parking Lot After a Concert or Event
Taking your fundraiser to a crowd after an event will expose your fundraiser to a lot of people in a very short amount of time. It can be an excellent way to make profit quickly. Remember that students sellers would require supervision.
New locations can be a great way to make better use of your time and maximize your fundraiser’s potential, and you may find new donors when you see a location other fundraisers have not used. Old Fashion Candy sells Candy and Snacks to work in every event. Speak to one of our fundraising specialists today, who can tell you about a variety that fits your needs. Call 1-800-500-1234.
