Playing a sport can quickly cost you a lot of money—especially a sport like baseball, with team uniforms, pants, jerseys and baseball shoes for each team member and equipment like bats, balls and gloves. If the team wins a lot of games and ends up going to play in a tournament or will play in tournaments in other states, travel is another costly item the team needs.
You never want to ask individuals to shell out money to pay for a share of the cost. It might force members to quit or not return the following year. But, if you don’t ask each member for a share of the cost to keep your team together and playing well, you still have to come up with the money somehow…
A bake sale is old news, so what can you sell? Why not consider pizza? Wholesale pizza is even better. It means you can get a lot of pizza and you can set a price for each slice or each pizza or however you’d like to sell it to your supporters!
- Everyone loves pizza: It’s true. From those picky eaters to the vegetarians and to those who can eat meat like there’s no tomorrow, everyone has at least one kind of pizza they love. Americans spend a total of 32 billion dollars a year on pizza, so why not have some of that go to your team? Community members, family and friends are planning to buy that slice or whole pizza anyway, and they might as well support a great cause while doing so!
- Pizza can be eaten anytime: Products like wrapping paper, holiday wreaths and spring flowers—which have been used for fundraisers in the past—are for the most part seasonal products. Pizzas can be eaten year round. During the cold winter months, it’s nice to pop a pizza in the oven and eat something warm for dinner. During the summer months, you can put the pizza on a grill.
- You have the whole team behind you: The more members of the team you have, the more pizza you can sell. Especially if you’re buying the pizza wholesale, you probably have many pizzas to sell. The baseball team is selling for a purpose, so they can get good equipment or travel to a tournament, so they have an incentive to sell pizza. They are motivated, meaning your team’s profits will increase.
Let’s face it. Nobody wants to take the time and energy to make cookies or brownies that will sell for 25 or 50 cents apiece. Nobody makes money on a bake sale anymore. A slice of pizza, however, can be sold for a solid amount, and a whole pizza can be sold for much more, meaning you will make a sizable profit!
Pizza is an easy, quick and classic meal choice and with many people in a time crunch, it’s a solid way to go. Help those busy people support a cause and support you by buying pizza from your fundraiser. To find wholesale pizza, get in touch with Giovanni’s Frozen Pizza today!
