Council-Sponsored Cookie Booths
Council-Sponsored Cookie Booths are booths secured by GSEP staff and are located in high-volume or high-profile locations. These booths are scheduled for troops throughout our Council area via computer selection and are open to all troops regardless of Service Unit Boundaries. The purpose of Council-Sponsored Cookie Booths is to allow all troops equal access to high-volume locations and allow all girls the opportunity to participate in booth sales. Council-Sponsored Cookie Booths include the following, as determined by the Product Program Advisory Council (PPAC): malls, transit stations, museums, large-scale events, and collegiate and professional sporting events.

With the possibility of construction, some SEPTA booths may have to be cancelled. If this is the case and you have been awarded one of these booths, you will be notified by email of the booth's cancellation.

Districts refer to the geographical region in Council. They consist of the 500’s, 600’s and 700’s. District Booths are new this year. These booths are higher traffic locations such as malls and local recreational areas that service a larger community than just a Service Unit. District Booths are open to all troops within the District regardless of Service Unit boundaries. All troops participating in District Booths will be required to provide feedback to the District Booth Manager. This feedback will be used to continually improve the process and to provide troops with valuable information pertaining to that specific booth. Troops not following all rules or not providing feedback will not be allowed to participate in District Booths the following year.
A limited number of district booths will be scheduled via a combined process of email requests and lottery systems, as a trial this year.The following are district booths in 2012:
- Plymouth Meeting Mall--please review the Plymouth Meeting Mall Rules and Regulations before your booth.
- Palmer Park Mall
- Crayola Factory
Lehigh Valley Service Center--outside booth; table is not provided; booth location in between Lehigh Valley Service Center and Home Depot. For inclement weather, booth location will be at Oral Dynamics across the street from the Lehigh Valley Service Center.
The District Booth Selection Process is now closed. If you have applied for a district booth, you will notified by December 20, 2011.
Service Unit Cookie Booths
All booths outside of Council-Sponsored Cookie Booths are Service Unit Cookie Booths. These booths are established by the Service Unit Cookie Manager (SUCM) or Service Unit Cookie Booth Manager (SUCBM) within each respective Service Unit area. Troops within the Service Unit can contact their SUCM or SUCBM to schedule Service Unit Cookie Booths. Each Service Unit handles the process of establishing and scheduling cookie booths differently. Please contact your SUCM or SUCBM for more information.
ACME has now given corporate permission for troops to sell at ACME stores. The permission is for Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the Cookie Program from January 19 through March 4. Service Unit Cookie Booth Managers will need to approach their individual stores for specific permission for that store and to work out the specific details pertaining to set up and booth timeslots. Please see the list of participating ACME stores.
