Everyone benefits from Popcorn!

The most successful units have a planned program with specific goals, on where they want to go and how they are going to get there. Setting a goal for how much your unit needs to sell and how much your scout needs to sell, is how your unit will have the funds needed to support your program.

Popcorn is fun and exciting for your Scouts to sell!!

The public loves Scouting and look forward to buying popcorn. 2 out of 3 customers will buy if asked by a Scout.  Remember we are not selling popcorn, we are helping our Scouts Fund Adventures! 

Scouts can earn much more than prizes
There are very few activities in scouting that demonstrate the benefits of planning, organization, teamwork and goal setting. Participating in the popcorn sale teaches scouts all of these skills, plus marketing, salesmanship, public speaking, and learning how to pay there way! These important skills will serve these young men throughout their lifetimes
