ADVANCE YOUR CAUSE WITH A JOHNSTON'S GREAT SOUTHERN BBQ FUNDRAISER
Do you need to raise funds for your team, church, school, event, non-profit or any other group?
Johnston’s makes it easy, profitable and delicious with our Classic Great Southern BBQ Fundraiser.
You sell the best BBQ around, and we’ll do all the rest!
Our fundraising menu includes five of our favorites, conveniently packaged and hand-delivered with instructions for storage and reheating. You can choose to sell all five, or narrow your options down to
include only the products you think will sell the best. Additional sauces, rubs, and seasonings
are available by arrangement.
What you’ll be selling
Boston Butts (6-6.5 lbs) – Perfect for pulled pork sandwiches… Irresistible!
Smoked Ham (6-6.5 lbs) – a delectable centerpiece.
Spare Ribs (3.5 lbs) – with our special rub – rotisserie smoked.
Our Famous Sausage (5 lbs) – mild/hot… Heaven on a plate! This item is smoked-not fully cooked.
Smoked Breakfast Bacon (5 lbs) – pre-sliced… Nothing better! This item is smoked-not fully cooked.
How much can you expect to earn?
Like anything worth doing, you get out of it what you put in. But we know you want to hear some numbers, so here’s what some of our participants have done in the past:
A baseball dugout club earned $11,970
A hospice organization earned $4,554
A school boosters club earned $3,000
And a high school marching band earned a whopping $20,000!
And that’s all profit, folks—the part our participants got to keep!
Set your goal HIGH and we’ll help you get there!
HOW IT WORKS
Contact us to let us know you want to have a fundraiser.
Contact us with your interest in doing a fundraiser and we’ll help you figure it out! We’ll answer all your questions and send you our Fundraiser Packet with all the information you'll need.
We’ll have you complete our Fundraising Agreement, select your delivery date, and tell us where to deliver your goodies when the selling window closes.
You decide how much markup you want to tack on (that’s right, you get to set your own profit margin!) You'll even receive sample templates to assist with advertising your fundraiser.
Plan your cooking and delivery day.
We cook your orders on the day of delivery so you’ll get them fresh and hot. Once your orders are cooked to perfection, we’ll deliver them right to your door. For the most streamlined experience, we recommend setting up staffed tables (not included) and allowing your buyers a firm 2-hour pickup window near the end of the work day.
You’ll get your tickets to sell –then you and your team SELL, SELL, SELL!
For the best results, allow yourself a 2-3 week selling window. That’s the sweet spot for maintaining engagement, keeping your organizers motivated, and providing a delivery date that buyers can see ahead to.
Call in your orders. You can sell up until a few days before the event/pick up.
To make sure we have plenty of inventory on hand, we’ll ask you for preliminary sales about a week before your fundraiser ends. We’ll ask again a few days later for final numbers. If you have any additional sales after providing final numbers, just let us know so we can confirm if we are able to provide the additional items.
Add it all up, deduct cost and YOU KEEP THE BALANCE!
That’s it, folks. It’s that easy. PLUS- you set the profit for your fundraiser.
