The popcorn sale is not just about selling popcorn; it’s also about promoting Scouting and the Scouting ideals!

How to Sell Popcorn

We offer four different ways to sell Popcorn as a unit.

Show and sell 

This sales technique involved setting up a product display at a business or storefront. This is a direct sales approach with Scouts asking those who pass through the area to support local Scouting by purchasing popcorn.

Show and Deliver

This sales technique is a combination of the Show and Sell and the Take Order methods. This technique can be very effective as the product can be delivered immediately to the customer at their front door. Load up a wagon with your show and sell products and walk to your neighbors.

Take Orders 

This approach involves the "Take Order Form" for family members, neighbors, church and other locations for a customer to place an order of popcorn.

Online sales 

Sales are made by utilizing e-mail, social media and the website to sell popcorn to those that are not local. A Scout and parent will need to set up an account at for this sales method.
