It's Popcorn Time!


Selling popcorn is our Pack’s primary way to raise funds and help cover costs for events throughout the year. Every scout’s participation is super important and they get a great opportunity to interact with the community while earning prizes for selling. Here are the various ways scouts can sell scouting through popcorn: Show-n-Sell

  • Go sign-up for a 2 hour time-slot that works for your schedule.

  • Show up at your location and time-slot and sell directly, with popcorn in-hand.

Benefits of Show-n-sell

  • Ability to sell in high-traffic locations like REI, Breed & Co and Lowes

  • Scouts have the popcorn in hand to sell to customers

  • Learn to have a friendly and professional interactions with new people and boost confidence

Online

  • Set up your online sales page at https://www.trails-end.com

  • Make a “digital sales plan” with your scout(s)

  • Send the online store link to friends and family via email, facebook, instagram, etc.

  • Track scout sales and goals online
