Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Who can host a fundraiser night?
Fundraiser nights are available for schools, club, athletic teams, non-profit organizations and community groups. If you’re not sure if your group qualifies, contact email@example.com to confirm your eligibility.
When are the fundraiser nights?
We offer fundraising nights at most of our locations on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 5 p.m. – close. Dates are available most weeks during the school year, except during the holiday season, and are available on a first come, first served basis.
How does it work?
Once your date has been reserved, you’ll need to provide us with a copy of your school or organization’s logo. The logo will be used to create the official event flyer. You will be given both a printable and social media friendly version of the flyer to distribute. An event will also be created on the store’s Facebook page, with the school or organization linked as a co-host (when applicable). It is up to the school or organization to promote the event. Guests will be required to show either a print or digital version of the flyer to their server the night of the fundraiser in order to be counted toward the sales total. The host school or organization receives 10% of the ticket sales for all guests who attend the fundraiser night.
Do to-go orders count towards my fundraiser earnings?
Yes! As long as the guest lets our to-go team member know they are with your organization, those earnings will be included.
Does a representative from my school or organization need to be present at the fundraiser night?
No. In fact, we ask that the school or organization does NOT have a representative present for the purpose of promoting the fundraiser night. In order to ensure none of our guests feel pressured to participate, we require all promotion to be done prior to the event. We do, however, encourage all members of your group to attend the fundraiser as guests to help support your school or organization!
How much can I expect to raise?
The amount of money you can raise will depend largely on how widely the event is promoted, as only guests who bring in a copy of the event flyer (printed or digital) will be counted toward the sales total. Typically, our fundraiser nights bring in between $100-200 for the host group. However, we’ve had events that were poorly promoted and had only 2-3 people attend, which resulted in substantially less money raised. We cannot stress enough the importance of spreading the word about the fundraiser night. These events work well when the school or organization is committed to promoting them well!
Can I host a fundraiser at more than one location on the same night?
No. Due to the high number of requests, each school or organization can host a fundraiser at only one location on any given night.
How often can I host a fundraiser night?
You are allowed to host up to one fundraiser night per month.
