She’s One Smart Cookie! Girl Scout Breaks Cookie-Selling Record

A young Girl Scout from Oklahoma has broken a decades-old record for the most boxes of Girl Scout cookies ever to be sold in the history of the organization.

The official record was broken by Katie Francis, a Hefner Middle School student from Oklahoma City. The twelve-year old sold an astonishing 18,107 boxes of cookies for her troop since the sales launched on February 7.  The previous record, according to ABC News, was 18,000 boxes. The cookie sales take place over a span of seven weeks.

“I was just really, really happy,’ said Katie. “I started dancing around. I was excited that I had made it,” she enthusiastically told KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City.

So what’s the secret to her success? Well Katie shared her strategy with The Oklahoman newspaper last month, “There’s three ingredients to selling cookies: There’s a lot of time, lots of commitment, and I have to ask everybody that I see to buy.”

KOCO  added that “Along with her mother, Katie pushes her wagon of cookies all over the Oklahoma City metro. The family’s SUV is stuffed with boxes of cookies, so Katie can make a sell anywhere from school to dance class.”

Last year the sixth grader sold an astounding 12,428 boxes of cookies and next year her goal is to sell 20,000 boxes.

Katie’s troop earns a percentage of the profits from the fundraiser sales. The troop plans on donating a portion of their earnings to breast cancer research.

Thus far the Girl Scout organization has remain mum in regards to Katie’s momentous accomplishment. Jaimie Siegal, director of marketing and communications at Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma, said they want to wait until the selling period is over before commenting on Francis’ success, ABC News reported.

Go Team Francis – such an enterprising and admirable young lady with a bright future ahead of her.
