Why Sell Popcorn?

The popcorn sale is extremely important to funding your unit's Scouting program! The sale is equally important to our Council so that we can provide adequate funding and maintenance to Gorham Scout Ranch, get Campbell Scout Ranch up and running, provide service to units, develop new programs, and much more.

You Talked, We Listened!

The feedback received from the 2015 popcorn sale was instrumental in developing a sales program that is simpler for unit kernals, and provides the greatest level of funding possible back to units. Here are some fo the changes for 2016:

  • We will accept returns of unsold show & sell product
  • Top commission available is 40%
  • Packs will have the option to forego prizes in favor of additional commissions
  • We will be returning to Keller Marketing for prizes as they were better quality and offered a greater selection
