Own it!Tips for Success

Tip #1: Order Ahead (Carryout for a Cause)

For our Carryout for a Cause events, it is a great idea to have your supporters order ahead. Orders can be submitted up to two weeks in advance! This helps our stores to be prepared for the volume of orders, but also, secures support ahead of time & ensures supporters won't forget-- A Win-Win!
