Cookie Club of America (CCA), was been reformed May 23, 2018 as a Nevada Corporation. We intend to take advantage of the new federal corporate tax rates, Nevada’s preferable state tax structure, the addition of Crowd Funding and significant advances in ecommerce and affiliate programs.
The proposed business of Cookie Club of America will initially produce and sell cookies embossed with all seven service emblems of our United States Armed Forces.
National Military Family Association (NMFA): The cookies will help benefit military families through the NMFA with package branding, an NMFA cookie, and product and cash donations. This simple combination of pairing cookies representing our American Hero’s helps bring in much needed donation dollars and exposure for the NMFA.
A founding element and main delineation from other companies is that all future cookie lines will also support some socially beneficial cause in-order to be considered as a client.
Our StartEngine Crowd Funding program: Began on 11 - December, 2018
We are doing the raise in two (2) phases.
1 - *$107,000 round that once reached may be amended to;
2 - *$1,000,000 in the second phase.
*These are Series B Common Shares offered @ $1.00 / share.
The Cookies: Are a delicious buttery shortbread style cookie wrapped in rich inspiring packaging honoring our military service personnel past, present and into the future. We are currently in the process of finalizing the cookie formulation, after which will determine final dimensions for separate service packaging and product displays.
Military Broker: C.R. McMullen and Robert Jury & Associates, has been in business for forty (40) years with offices and a retail store inside the Pentagon. They are very excited about the cookies and look forward to getting started. With over $3 Billion in military sales, we are very confident in their abilities.
Affiliate Program: CCA intends to provide a robust affiliate program that will deliver any of the estimated 45,000 military non-profits the ability to resell our cookies and raise money in support of their specific focus, at no cost to them for inventory, shipping or handling.
CCA fulfillment intends to process the sale, then pack and ship cookies directly to the end buyer. CCA would pay the affiliate non-profit the retail spread similar to what a typical retailer would earn. The idea is to provide a simple three (3) step mechanism for them to raise money without spending money up front, unless they choose to do so.
Example of the Three (3) Step Process:
- A military non-profit sells cookies through an online outlet or partner site.
- The order passes a cookie (pun intended), which logs the sale as originating from the non-profit.
- CCA retains the wholesale cost, sales tax and shipping costs and deposits the retail spread into non-profits merchant account on a weekly / monthly basis.
We also intend to utilize a 1-800 call center and process mail-in paper order forms with pre-printed affiliate codes as many older veterans/Americans just do not own computers nor trust them.
- We are in discussions with several large high-profile entities and look forward to their on-boarding process.
The above example is our way of trying to solve the problem that plaques MOST ALL non-profits. Most have limited funds and capabilities to help them truly raise money and increase awareness of the non-profit. This is true of not only military non-profits, but the non-profit world in general. They are constantly seeking donations or trying to figure out additional ways to do so.
CCA has been approached by and at the appropriate time intends to deploy this same model and expand our cookie lines to other Nationally Recognized properties that may Include; Professional Sports - Major Universities – and Corporate Clients.
Our affiliate model could provide the non-profit world a tasty mechanism that easily AND inexpensively maximizes their fund raising efforts, while conserving precious capital.
Podcast: This past week I had the pleasure of appearing on a Mapable USA Podcast hosted by Ron Costa and Ron Sukenick to talk about our company and the Crowd Funding Process.
Spokesperson: We are seeking a former military spokesperson to represent the Company at various public and private events. The perfect candidate is former military with an outgoing personality, great smile and excellent communication skills.
We encourage you to spread the word and join us in honoring and support the Men and Women currently serving in the Military, their families and our Veterans…
