Girl Scout scores big sale at donut shop

This is what can happen when the right little girl sells Girl Scout Cookies to the right business.

Eight-year-old Makenzie already knows how to sell sweets.

Her uncle, Ben Duenwald, calls her “a real champion marketer” for his business Flyboy Donuts.

“She tells all her friends about her uncle’s shop and says she’s going to work there when she gets bigger.”

So when it came time to sell Girl Scout cookies this year, Uncle Ben was a big customer. He bought 20 boxes of Thin Mints and has been working the cookies into a limited-time line of donuts. The cookies are crushed and sprinkled on top of mint-flavored whipped cream.

“We’ve been wanting to do a chocolate and mint donut for a while and when Makenzie came around … we came up with a plan that would not only work for Flyboy but would also give Makenzie some of the glory she really deserves.”

The truly bittersweet part here is that Makenzie has never been able to try a Flyboy donut. Or a Girl Scout cookie, for that matter, because of her extreme food allergies.

“So why not help Makenzie feel part of the business … and support her local Girl Scouts, too,” Duenwald said.

“She think it’s pretty cool she’s on Facebook,” he added. “We think the collaboration has been a success. At least it’s definitely a tasty collaboration. Based on their popularity, we’ll definitely be buying more next year.”
