Become a Seller

Mrs Higgins Festive Treats was established in 2010 by three Otago University Students. Since then, tertiary students have been given the opportunity to sell and deliver the most delicious goodies to businesses and kiwis nationwide.

Our Festive Treats are proudly New Zealand made from only the finest ingredients. We have three mouth-watering cookie flavours, Chunky Choc Chip, White Choc Raspberry and the all NEW Choc Chew! Plus, the epic crowd favourite, festive brownie bites. These rich, American style fudgy treats are a must try.

These products are a perfect Christmas treat or gift to share with friends, family, customers, clients and staff. Festive Treats proudly supports the Starship foundation, so you can enjoy these delights knowing you've done a little bit of good.

The campaign runs throughout New Zealand every year in the seven weeks leading up to Christmas. This means students can work hard for a short time period, then have New Years and January off!

As a seller you get the chance to "run your own business," the more you sell, the more you earn. This means you are paid commission per bucket sold. You are given a sales territory which you have exclusive rights to. It is your job to sell treats and spread the joy of Christmas to every corner of it.

This role is a full-time position. 40 hours per week are expected from sellers. In saying this, top sellers will go above and beyond this. All sellers will receive training prior to the campaign and ongoing support throughout.
