New in 2021 – Tons of New Storefront Opportunities!
This year we have launched a new initiative to expand our storefront opportunities beyond Bass Pro Shop and Kroger to create thousands of pre-setup storefront shifts for your unit to take advantage of. We’ve started contacting many new partners to come on board for popcorn storefronts this year!
A Few Reasons Units Choose to Sell Popcorn
Check out the videos below as well.
When participating in popcorn, 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 Scouts. That’s 73% that goes to Scouting. While a portion of that goes to directly support your Scout unit, the remaining portion gets reinvested into supporting your unit, and into local programs and supplies. So by selling, you not only help your unit, but you help Scouting as a whole. That means new equipment at camp like compound bows and fishing equipment, and enhanced facility improvements so that your unit can enjoy every moment of their stay.
The Popcorn Kickoff Rallies will give you free supplies to aid your sale, learn important new updates, and hear some helpful hints and tips toward making your sale even more successful. It’s a one stop shop to get everything you need for Popcorn.
This year we’ll be having 4 in-person Popcorn Rallies (July 27, July 29, Aug 2, and Aug 4) around different parts of the council in order to space out and get you your materials at a convenient location.

Just one more way popcorn supports your unit. The 2021 Popcorn Festival will take place on Aug 28 at the Cincinnati Zoo! More details will become available and will be posted here.
