Why Sell Popcorn !

Let Popcorn Fund Your Scouting Adventures!

Selling popcorn is a win-win situation! For Scouts it teaches them valuable life lessons in goal setting, salesmanship and self confidence. For parents it has the potential to fund an entire year of Scouting adventures! Imagine your Scouts participating in a program packed full of exciting activities and not having the parents pay for any of it.

Everybody loves popcorn!

Popcorn is popular with customers. (3 out 4 people will buy)

Average unit makes $1,500 to $2,000 in profit.

Prizes for the Boys (they love to earn prizes!)

It taste great and it’s very nutritious.

You’ll raise enough funds for a whole year’s program.

Boys build confidence, self-esteem and people skills.

All the profits stay local to support individual units and

council programs.
