A couple of budding business executives?
Young Girl Scouts set up shop outside a cannabis dispensary in Chicago over the weekend, earning high praise from many visitors and social media.
Dispensary 33, located near the Uptown neighborhood, shared videos of the troop dishing out cookies to hungry customers Sunday morning.
“We have Girl Scout cookies!!” the dispensary tweeted. “And not just the cannabis kind. Support your local Girl Scouts with us.”
The dispensary also offers a strain of cannabis called “Girl Scout Cookie.”
“The response was incredibly positive,” said dispensary spokesperson Abigail Watkins. “People were so excited… our customers loved it, our staff loved it.”
Photos and videos of the bundled up young sellers started sprouting on social media, sparking a flurry of comments.
“Huge shoutout to the Girl Scout troop with the cookie sales table set up outside Dispensary 33,” one Twitter user wrote. “You’re the future leaders America needs.”
Another user said the cookies and dispensary were “a match made in heaven.”
It’s unclear how many cookies the group sold, but a spokesperson for the Girl Scouts of the Greater Chicago Area and Northwest Indiana said several hundred boxes were sold.
“They said they did good sales,” said regional Girl Scouts spokeswoman Britney Bouie.
The dispensary said it worked with the troop ahead of time to set up the booth, and other troops are planning similar appearances at the location every weekend for the rest of the month.
“I encourage other troops to reach out and sell some cookies – I’m sure they’d have some good numbers,” Watkins said.
Similar scenes sprouted in states that previously legalized recreational marijuana. Recreational cannabis was legalized in Illinois beginning Jan. 1.
“It’s really great to see these very entrepreneurial girls getting out there in the community,” said regional Girl Scouts spokeswoman Britney Bouie.
Bouie said she expected to see more booths popping up at similar locations in the city, if approved by troop leaders or parents.
“We allow it as long as it’s approved by the parents and the troop leaders,” she said.
