How it Works

Frequently Asked Questions

How much money will we make?

Profit: With MinnTex’s recommended retail prices, your organization can estimate an average profit of at least $6.00 per item sold.*

  • If 30 salespeople each sell 10 items…300 items x $6.00 = $1800.00 profit
  • If 50 salespeople each sell 15 items…750 items x $6.00 = $4500.00 profit
  • If 100 salespeople each sell 20 items…2000 items x $6.00 = $12,000.00 profit

Costs: When you receive pricing information from MinnTex, you will know exactly what your costs will be. Sales materials and product delivery are included in those prices. There are no hidden or additional costs. 

Retail Selling Prices: We recognize that each community and fundraising situation is unique. With our customizable order forms, you have the freedom to determine your own retail selling prices. We will work with you to determine what is best for your organization. 

* Actual retail prices, costs and profit per item vary with the markets from season to season.  All figures shown above are estimated for illustration purposes only. Your costs (and profits) may be affected by the quantity of items ordered, and your geographic location. This will be clearly communicated in the pricing information you receive from us. Organizations in South Dakota and Kansas must add state sales tax to their costs. 

Refund Policy: Are MinnTex products guaranteed?

Yes. MinnTex Citrus guarantees products against spoilage or damage at time of delivery to the school/organization. Schools/Organizations are responsible to inspect their product upon arrival. To be eligible for a refund or credit, any claim of spoilage or damage must be made by the school/organization within 2 days of MinnTex’s delivery to the organization.

MinnTex Citrus accepts no responsibility for handling or appropriate storage of products after they have been delivered to the school/organization. For this reason, consumers must direct all customer service inquiries, requests for product returns, refunds and/or exchanges to the school/organization from whom they purchased their product(s).

It is the responsibility of each school/organization to maintain and communicate its policies regarding product guarantees, returns, refunds & exchanges.
 

How long should we sell?

We recommend a sales period of 2 weeks and 3 weekends. (For example: Begin on a Friday, sell for two full weeks, then end on a Monday.) However, you may sell for a longer or shorter period of time if you wish.
 

When should we collect the money?

We recommend collecting the money at the time of sale. We offer a 1% discount on your bill if it is paid within two weeks of your delivery date. Collecting the money “up front” from your customers will better enable you to take advantage of the discount, and give you one less thing to track on delivery day.
 

Is there a minimum order?

Yes. Our standard minimum for any fruit order is 100 total units. In some cases, your geographic location may necessitate a higher minimum order. We will clearly communicate any special minimum order requirements with you prior to your sale.
 

What should I do with the sales forms?

When your sale is complete, tally and submit your totals to MinnTex. Keep your sales forms for delivery day. We recommend that you make copies of each form, and keep them on file for the following year’s sale.
 

How do I find nutritional and allergen information?

All nutritional and allergen information for our "Especially for you..." snack items is listed on our Cheese, Sausage & Nuts page.
