Selling Popcorn and Peanuts
This sale is not just about selling popcorn and peanuts….it’s also about promoting Scouting! When participating in the product sale, Scouts gain self-confidence, people skills, money management, salesmanship, and business ethics — things that help prepare them for life. These are great values and skills for youth to learn. All proceeds stay right here to help support local scouting…that’s 70% that goes to Scouting! While a portion of that goes to directly support your unit, the remaining portion is reinvested into camp improvements and equipment, program support and office supplies.
If a Scout wants to participate in online sales instead of or in addition to, face-to-face sales, contact the unit popcorn chair and ask him or her to register the Scout to sell online. Scouts do not need to register to sell Whitley’s nuts, information is to be given to each customer by the Scout so that proper credit is received. The online commission percentage for both products is identical to the percentage that the Unit earns for selling.
