At Deli Market News, our entirely female editorial team is all about girl power. That is why we were overjoyed to learn of Stacy's® Pita Chips' most recent partnership. The female-founded company has entered a licensing agreement with Girl Scouts® of the USA to release the new, limited-edition Stacy's Girl Scout Thin Mints™ Flavored Pita Thins. The supplier has also pledged to donate $50,000 to Girl Scouts to support the next generation of female entrepreneurs.
"Stacy's believes that when women rise, we all rise. And now, we're expanding this idea by supporting these entrepreneurs in partnership with the Girl Scouts," said Rhasheda Boyd, Vice President of Marketing at Frito-Lay, which is the parent company of Stacy's. "We always seek to bring more meaning to everyday moments, whether through impactful actions for our community or unexpected and delicious new flavors. Just like our pita chips, this is an artfully crafted partnership that we are thrilled to share with our fans."
Since 2017, Stacy's has connected thousands of women entrepreneurs and invested thousands of dollars in women-founded businesses through the Stacy's Rise Project. Over the years, the brand has created a community that demonstrates the power of women coming together to lift each other up and celebrate each other's successes.
The new Thin Mints-inspired flavor will roll out at stores nationwide starting in September for a limited time only. Shoppers can join Stacy's in supporting the next generation of women entrepreneurs by scanning the on-pack QR code to learn more about the partnership, a press release noted.
"Girl Scouts has always encouraged our members to discover their strengths, learn new skills and rise to new challenges—gaining friends and mentors along the way," said Corby Herschman, Director of Institutional Giving at Girl Scouts of the USA. "We are thrilled to collaborate with Stacy's Pita Chips, a brand that knows the importance of empowering women entrepreneurs to succeed and thrive."
