Best Ways to Sell Popcorn

Show & Sell - Scouts can set up at a store fronts to sell popcorn; they could also set up at a craft show or festival. Show and sells are set up by the district popcorn kernals and units must sign up for these locations. You can also approach local businesses unique to your community for setting up to sell popcorn as well.

Show & Deliver - Scouts go door to door selling popcorn, but instead of ordering the popcorn and coming back later to deliver they have the popcorn with them at the time. They collect the money and give the customer the popcorn immediately—no second trip!

Take Order - Scouts go door to door or call people on the phone and ask them to buy popcorn. You could also take order forms to work, family events, etc. The order is then placed with the unit’s Popcorn Kernal and product is delivered on or after the November 10th distribution date.

Online - Scouts set up an online account and send emails to friends and family members to buy popcorn through the online site and the Scout receives credit for the sale. This would be especially convenient for out of state friends and Family.

Michael Beck - Come see him speak and increase your popcorn sale with his outstanding & proven selling techniques!! This will be held August 8th at 6:30 pm in Fairborn at Serco, 1825 Commerce Center Blvd.
