For the second year in a row, one entrepreneurial girl scout has set up a cookie sales booth outside of a medical marijuana dispensary in California. Patrons of The Green Cross dispensary in San Francisco have become accustomed to seeing Danielle Lei selling girl scout cookies in front of the store.
After national media outlets spread news of the cookie sales success last year, girl scouts in Colorado followed suit for a short time before being shut down. Although they were banned from doing so in Colorado, other states have not reported issues.
Danielle and her mother made the profitable discovery of selling the popular, seasonal cookies in front of The Green Cross by accident last year. Lei’s mother reported that she takes her girls to different neighborhoods to sell every year in order to teach the kids about the different subculture throughout the city. She always stays to supervise the sales, and ensure that the situation is safe for the girls to sell.
They made record sales there last year, and decided to come back for year two. It was a good decision considering that in just two hours last weekend, Lei sold over 200 boxes of cookies. That is 20 percent of her total goal of 1,000 boxes. In four days of selling cookies in that location, she sold 560 boxes.
To show her appreciation, Lei wrote a thank you letter to the dispensary for allowing her to sell in front of the store.
