What is the Annual Popcorn Sale:

Each fall, Scouts hit the streets selling popcorn in front of grocery stores, in their neighborhood and to friends and family as part of our Annual Popcorn Sale. This program is a Council administered fundraiser designed to engage Scouts in the process of raising the funds that will support their unit’s program needs for the entire year. It also gives Scouts pride knowing they earned their own way!

Methods of Selling

73% of the proceeds from Popcorn sales stay within the local council.  The individual unit can earn between 30%-35% of the retail value of the popcorn for every bag sold.

  • Show and Sell
    This sale is designed to sell popcorn that your unit popcorn kernel signs out and picks up at a council pickup location. Then, at a location of your choice, you and the Scouts from your unit sell the popcorn directly to the public.
  • Show and Deliver
    This is the best way to increase popcorn sales. The Scouts in your unit take an order form and product door to door. The Scout sells the product, delivers the product, and collects the money all in one trip.
  • Online Sale
    Your Scout can sell online to help earn his or her own way and fund their Scouting adventures.  On-line sales earns 35% directly back to your unit.  Your unit must have an account set up.  Please email and we will be happy to set one up for you.
  • Military Sale
    Trail’s End partners with Soldiers’ Angels to deploy all military popcorn sales to various bases, VA hospitals, and National Guard units.
