Popcorn Sale

Get Excited About Popcorn in 2024!

The annual popcorn sale is our largest fundraiser. Annually, it puts more than $600,000 of cash and prizes into our units' hands to deliver the Scouting program! We are excited to continue to offer this as a fundraiser to our units this year.

How to Sell Popcorn

There are three different ways to sell Popcorn as a unit.

  • Show N’ Sell is a direct sale that takes place outside of a local business, where Scouts interact directly with community members and encourage them to buy popcorn.
  • Take Order is an order and fulfillment process that takes place in your neighborhood, where Scouts go door-to-door and ask for popcorn orders that are fulfilled at a later date.
  • Online Sales are also available and can be used to raise funds for your unit no matter where the customer is located. Check out the video below to learn more

How to Use the Trails End App

Save time managing your popcorn sale with the Trail’s End app. This upgraded sale feature allows real-time reporting for storefront, door-to-door and online sales. Track inventory by Scout and have your customers pay easily with cash and credit card. Every Scout will also receive FREE payment processing powered by Square to make every sale easier and cost effective than ever.
