Cheyenne, Wyo. (KGWN) Girl Scout cookie season is upon us. In Cheyenne one six-year-old Daisy Girl Scout hopes to hit new marks in the sales process. In 2013 Loriana Walter sold 1055 boxes. In her second year as a Daisy she hopes to surpass her previous mark.
Loriana is closing out the month of February with 700 boxes sold and is the current top-seller in her troop.
Girl Scouts is a tradition in the Walter family. Loriana's mother Lorrell was a Girl Scout from 2nd grade through her senior year in high school.
The Walter family takes cookie season pretty seriously.. While cookie sales benefit the troop financially, they also teach the girls a number of important business lessons. According to her mother, Loriana has learned that when people ask how much cookies cost, she needs to tell them "$4 per box or five for $20." This little marketing technique has changed a lot of three box orders to five box orders and has been a part of her success.
The Walter family moved to Wyoming from New York last summer. In the fall, Loriana had the honor of meeting Governor Mead to earn her "respecting authority" badge. The Governor asked if she sold cookies and when she said yes, she was invited to come back during cookie season. A couple of weeks ago we went to his office and he bought cookies from her at that time.
Another thing Loriana and her mother are doing is offering people the opportunity to donate cookies. The local service unit is donating cookies to the cancer ward at CRMC and the Air Guard. Loriana has also sold cookies that will be donated to the food cupboard at SafeHouse. Last year, her troop donated cookies to our local food pantry and the children's hospital.
