Why Do Scout Units Sell Popcorn?

  • Scouts learn life lessons by “earning their own way.”
  • Product sales revenue supports the unit program.
  • Provides funds for activities and advancement, lowers the cost of camps, district activities, and prices at the Scout shop.
  • Increase your unit and council income – up to 35% stays with the local unit.
  • Scouts use the funds for various Scouting programs, fees and activities.
  • There are loads of incentives to motivate Scouts.

Popcorn Sale

  • Nearly 73% of all dollars collected during the sale support local Scouting.

  • Units earn up to a 35% commission on Trails End products they sell.

  • The popcorn sale is a way for a Scout to support his or her way through the various activities during the year.

Our primary concern is to keep Scouts safe while still doing all the fun things we love to do. 

This year we suggest starting Online Sales now.  Online orders are sent directly to your customers with a $7.99 delivery fee for the first item and $.99 for each additional item.  There will even be some weekends with No Delivery fee.

Popcorn season is year-round, with in-person sales starting September 26th

Right now you can:

  • Put up door hangers in your neighborhood with your photo and Trails-End website listed for online orders. 

  • Promote your website on social media

  • Make calls to your friends and relatives

  • Send emails or make calls to businesses to purchase for their break room or gifts
