Yes! You can look through all we have to offer and choose the ones that best fit your needs and interests.
We sure do! Three of our soups are gluten free: Cheddar Vegetable, Cream of Potato, Cream of Broccoli with cheese. We also have a gluten free chocolate chip cookie dough.
You choose your retail price thus determining your own profits. We give you a price sheet listing your cost and a suggested range for your retail price. You know your customers better than we do, so we like you to have a voice in setting your retail prices. For example: A kids’ group can charge more for the same item than an adult group selling the same product. We will work together with you on setting retail prices if you want guidance.
Yes, we do! We pre-print information on each order form that is specifically personalized for your group. Items such as group name, checks payable to, order form turn-in date, delivery date, sales goals and fundraiser purpose are the common items included.
This is the part that each group loves because it’s so very easy. We will arrive in our delivery vehicle on the date/time selected. We take a beginning inventory with group leader, making sure we brought everything you ordered. We stay with you during the distribution process until you are comfortable and dismiss us. Sometimes orders are prepackaged per seller and other times we separate orders when we arrive. We determine together which option will be best for you.
Most groups have a selling range of 10 days to 3 weeks. We suggest always including 2 weekends. Upon receiving your order, delivery can be 10 – 14 days. If you want, a sale can go from start to finish in less than a month! It’s simple, quick and easy!
This is up to the individual group. We suggest you collect payment when your customer places their order. (Checks will be made payable to your group.) This way all money is collected in advance. This serves two purposes. One, the group member can make a smooth hand-off of the product to their supporter without worrying about money collections. Two, you won’t be stuck with any product that is not paid for.
If you sell 200 items, we will deliver to you on the date and time preplanned with you. If total sale is under 200 items, we will work together on the delivery plan. It may be a date and time more convenient to our delivery schedule. Or we may meet someone from your group at a halfway point for both of us.
We appreciate payment at time of delivery. Some groups must get board approval and so can’t have payment at that time. In that case, payment can be mailed to BEC Foods Fundraising (6493 180th St. Clear Lake, IA 50428) after delivery.
Please have one check made to BEC Foods Fundraising for our portion of the sale. We will email your invoice. Hard copy available upon request.
