Old Fashion Candy

  • Ultimate Fundraising Cheat Sheet

    Old Fashion Candy has nearly 50 years of experience helping people reach their fundraising goals.

    We have learned the steps to getting a fundraiser started on the right foot, as we help people reach their goals year after year. This is the Old Fashion Candy fundraising cheat sheet, and the steps included will help you start your fundraiser strong this year.

    Make a plan.

    Always start with a plan. Think about how many sellers are in your group, and how much you can expect each to sell. Ordering is convenient with our No Minimum Order policy because you can order just enough and reorder if you sell more than you expected.

    You can start with our free fundraising planning tools on our tools page:

    We have a page of Fundraising Tips, Permission Slip, and a Record Chart.

    Consider the time of year or holiday.

    When your fundraiser is a good fit, it will be easy to sell to donors. We have fundraisers that fit every season! Try to make your product coincide with a holiday or season. During seasons such as Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day donors are already looking for candy! Try to make your product fill a need your donor has such as finding a holiday gift or needing a snack at a party or event.

    Encourage donors to use items as gifts.

    Donors are likely to buy multiples of your product if they think of the item as a gift. Framing your sale as gift items is a simple way to increase profit for your fundraiser.

    Our brochure fundraisers are full of excellent gift items.

    Large Profit Margins

    Try selling larger size items to increase your profit margins. Larger items mean that you can sell fewer to reach your fundraising goal!

    Our Monster Variety has large sizes of top brand names such as Skittles®, Reese's®, and Kit Kat®.

    The price difference in our large items is small enough that it usually doesn’t make a difference to donors, but it can mean magnitudes for your fundraiser.

    These tips can make a big difference for your fundraiser. Please share them if you find them useful, and call 1-800-500-1234 to talk to one of our fundraising experts today.

  • 6 Profitable Places to Sell Fundraising Candy

    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:

    Farmers Markets

    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.

    Retirement Communities

    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.
