"This is my second time working with Fun Pasta. The company is very user friendly and there is always someone available to assist. Those that purchased items during both fund raisers raved about the quality, as well as the nutritional value, of the products. The company recently added Angel Hair Nests and the spinach ones were fantastic. The shelf life of the items makes it easy to plan ahead and buy gifts for holidays or upcoming events. The themes are too cute and they lend themselves to a variety of occasions.
The folder Fun Pasta sends when you start has everything a novice would need to begin, and it also serves as a handy tool for those veterans who have a good handle on fund raising. Ordering online is a snap and makes for speedy delivery. This last time I did encounter a shortage and when I called, Fun Pasta sent out the missing items in a flash - complete with an apology and an assurance that I my satisfaction was important to them. Fun Pasta is one of my favorite companies to work with and I look forward to a long relationship with them. I can’t wait to see what new products they will add next time!"
"Wow! What can I say about your fundraising? Except that it’s the greatest fundraiser EVER! Our cheerleaders sold over $5000 worth of product this year and were thrilled to have gotten such a great response. I have heard nothing negative about your product. All the parents involved thought your selection was great and you had just about every activity covered (and from reading your FAQs, the ones you don’t have you seem to be working on).We had prompt delivery and distribution is just as easy as ordering. It’s all clearly marked and the only way you could make it any easier would be to do it yourself. Thanks again for allowing us to be part of your sales. We hope you’ll let us take part next year."
The Chattanooga Girls Choir has been Fun Pasta fundraising for several years now. When we first started we thought what a nice change from our typical fundraiser. We weren't sure how our members and their families would take to selling pasta. The exciting part was that the fundraiser was received with GREAT success! This really is a fundraiser that sells itself. After all we are a Tennessee organization and Tennesseans take college football very seriously with tailgate parties and get-togethers. It is always fun to see how many bags of pasta is sold for each college team. Since we are in southern Tennessee it is always a toss up between Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia. This year our members sold more Tennessee pasta than any other. Go Big Orange!
Since fall 2007, we have consistently sold over $7,000 in pasta each year which means a net profit of $3,000+. Not many other fundraisers offer you 50% profit like Fun Pasta nor are as easy to sell. When the online sales were added last year it has only helped our profit as families can now get friends and family members out of state to participate which is not something that coupon books or cookie dough can do.
Our members look forward to who will be this year's "top seller". Our top seller for 2011 sold over $650 worth of product. That one member proves that you don't need to have a lot of participants to kick off this fundraiser with your organization but certainly the more you have the better. Don't forget to set yourself a minimum goal per member. Some members may sell only one or two items but don't be discouraged. Whether you have 10, 50 or 150 members it does not take much work to make this a very worth while fundraiser. Needless to say, the Chattanooga Girls Choir is looking forward to Fun Pasta being our fall fundraiser for years to come!
