Ah, Girl Scout Cookies…
The irresistible treat that’s sold mostly behind the guise of workplace guilt and adorable little smiles waiting for you outside of supermarkets, year in, year out.
But one genius little girl and her mom have taken this marketing plan one step further, following one of the first rules of business: knowing exactly who your customer is.
Girl Scout Danielle Lei, 13, knew exactly what her customers wanted when she set up her de facto cookie store outside of the Green Cross, a medical marijuana dispensary in San Francisco.
If that makes no sense to you, lemme break it down to you in stoner sense.
If you smoke weed, you’ll get the munchies. And when you get the munchies, you want delicious treats to stuff in your maw.
And as anyone who’s ever eaten a Samoa, Tagalong, or a Thin Mint (preferably frozen) knows, there’s not many treats more delicious than Girl Scout Cookies.
So it should come as no surprise then, when I tell you that Danielle Lei sold out of ALL of her cookies in just 45 minutes.
Thankfully, the forward thinking Girl Scouts of Northern California said that they have no problem with their scouts putting their business savvy to use outside medical marijuana dispensaries.
However, the Girl Scouts of Colorado, where recreational marijuana is now legal, are crazy pissed and in full-on panic mode, saying that the above photo is “a hoax”.
According to the Green Cross, little genius Danielle Lei will be back out in front of the dispensary selling her wares this weekend, where she’ll be raking in the cash and making all of us collectively say: “Why didn’t I think of that?!”
