Popcorn is a FUN way for Boy Scouts to Raise Funds!

 

We have the best Boy Scout popcorn sales program!

Boy scouts and delicious popcorn go hand in hand. The scouts have been selling tasty popcorn for over 30 years now, so selling scout popcorn can help your troops too!

There is no official organization wide sales program for The Boy Scouts of America. So this means each sales campaign is run by the local  district council, troop or pack individually. This is where we can help your Scouts. Because we provide an affordable option to Trails End. We invite all districts to see for themselves.

Fundraisingzone.com has been helping non-profit youth groups have fun with popcorn fund raisers for decades. We also provide delicious gourmet popcorn at less than half the price of other Scout popcorn vendors.

In this article we will gladly answer all your questions about our Boy Scout fund raiser program.

How much money does a scouting unit or council make selling popped corn?

While most popcorn fundraisers earn the Scouts a 30% profit, our Boy Scouts can earn up to a 50% profit on all sales with our programs. Because of this you will sell more units for the BSA.

For instance, here is our Popcorn Pleasures profit percentage chart:

Popcorn Profit Chart
No. of Pieces Profit Percentage
150 – 250 40%
251 – 500 45%
Over 500 50%

The average Boy Scout troop size is around 15 Scouts. The average scout sells between $300 – $1,500 each. Of course some scouts will sell less units and others will sell more units.

Lets take $300 of pop corn sold for our example.

  • If we multiply that times 15 scouts in an eagle troop, this results in 562 sales.
  • 562 units sold @ $8 per unit = $4,496.00
  • The boy scouts earn an amazing 50% profit or $2,248 in commission on all sales.
  • Your scouts will gladly earn $900 more than boy scout troops who earn only 30% profit.

How do you sell Boy Scout popcorn?

Selling popcorn doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are a few tips and resources to help you sell more popcorn. 

  • Line up everyone that is willing to volunteer to help.
  • Make a list of your family, friends, neighbors and coworkers.
  • Spread the word that you are selling popcorn via text, email and also social media.

Selling Training Tips

 

Selling is an art. This list of activities is by no means exclusive. However, it includes the basics to help you succeed at selling.

  • Popcornselling 101: Show the popcorn brochure and ask people which popcorn they would like to try? 
  • When selling popcorn remember to ask people what their favorite popcorn flavors are. Additionally, watch their reaction and show them the closest matching popcorn flavor.
  • Popcorn sales training is very important to succeed. So have the boys practice their sales pitch. Hold a training camp and have specific training activities that will prepare your volunteers.
  • Additionally, use Zoom to do a training webinar to help your scouts sell more units. Record the video so the parents can refer to it again later.
  • Set a fundraising goal for your popcorn orders. Set goals for each Scout and the together as a Troop. This is an amazing life lesson for every boy that sets and reaches his goals.
  • You can also use contests to encourage the boys to sell more. 
  • Tell people about how scouting makes a difference in the life of a boy and his community. Furthermore, remind them they are not buying popcorn, but supporting a national institution.
  • Finally, team up with local businesses to donate prizes. Tell your customers they win this fun prize when they buy 10 popcorn units. This can help you sell more bulk orders.
  • BTW these are life skills that any Eagle can use to help with their advancement in every part of life.
