2015 Popcorn Sales

Face it parents: we grew up in a different time. As kids, nothing was handed to us. We either worked or helped to earn our rewards: money, an activity with friends, or something we wanted. Scouting still believes in and stands for the core value of earning!

Benefits to Your Scout and Family:

  • Teaches Scouts the value & process of setting and working toward goals
  • Gives Scouts a strong sense of accomplishment through recognition
  • Enhances communication, leadership skills and confidence in your Scout
  • Scouts can earn valuable rewards including gift cards and prizes
  • Scouts can earn their way to summer camp or other scout activities   

Ways to Sell:


Storefront Sales
  • Storefront Sales make up a big part of our popcorn program. 
  • We've obtained permission from local businesses to set up a sales table.  
  • Different Scouts work at the table in shifts (always under adult supervision). 
  • We'd like for all the pack's scouts to work at least one storefront sales shift.  


Take Orders

  • The scout with his Akela goes door to door with a Take Order Form. 
  • The customer writes their order on the form and the Scout collects the money.
  • The scout processes the order and delivers the popcorn to the customer in a few weeks.


Selling at Work

  • Mom and/or Dad take an order form to their work.
  • Fellow co-workers write their order on the order form.
  • Mom and/or Dad collect the money and deliver product in a few weeks.
    (It is best to collect the money upfront when possible)
