why is popcorn easy to sell
Why is Popcorn Easy to Sell?
  • No one else can sell Trails-End Popcorn
  • Scouts and Popcorn go together
  • Wearing your scout shirt shows pride in our country and many people like that about scouting.
  • Many people buy just because they were in scouting when they were younger, even Girl Scouts.
  • We made this our only fundraiser for the entire scout season last year!
  • 1/3 to Council
  • 1/3 to manufacturer
  • 1/3 of the price of popcorn goes to us
why is it important to sell popcorn
Why is it Important to Sell Popcorn?

This can be the only fundraiser that we need, to keep scouts funded.

We have achieved this in the last 3 years, easily.

Our profit margin is 33% on popcorn. We make $6.00 off of a box of popcorn as opposed to 25 cents off of a candy bar. You would need to sell 24 candy bars to equal one box of popcorn.

1/3 to Council

1/3 to manufacturer

1/3 of the price of popcorn goes to us

cub scout family goal
Cub Scout Family Goal
  • Your Family Goal $200.00.
  • You can use this to earn your scout shirt for new scouts.
  • Sell $200.00 worth of popcorn and the pack can pay for your shirt.
  • To reach our goal of $12,000.00, each family goal would be $480.00 at 25 families
  • Last year our average sales per Cub Scout was $415.00 with 17 scouts.
boy scout goals
Boy Scout Goals
  • Boy Scouts will earn a percentage to go towards their separate scout account.
  • A small percentage will go towards the Troop fund to keep things running.
  • Suggested goal - $1000.00 per scout This will put around $250.00 in your account for use at Camp Drake.
  • Last Year the average per Boy Scout was $701.60 but averages don’t mean that much since each Boy Scout needs to earn his own funds to go into his individual account for camp.

$1500.00 – gets you an extra $50 Wal-Mart or Amazon.com Gift Card on top of what you earn, courtesy of Trails’ End.

$2500.00 – sell this much in one year and your scout receives scholarship money that accumulates with every sale afterwards. You have to sell this much in one year to get on the scholarship program. Then any sales from that point on gets counted. Your scout gets 6% of sales towards scholarship. That’s $150.00 for $2500.00 sold.

If you are up for it, it is best to get it done your first year, then it will add up much quicker for you.
