Popcorn Blitz Weekend
This weekend is our popcorn blitz weekend. Be sure to take advantage of the Blitz weekend prizes. The top 5 sellers will receive a $100 Amazon gift card. Be sure to submit a picture/pdf of the order form to email@example.com email. Remember only sales between September 17-19th count for Blitz weekend prizes.
Festival Foods Show and Sell
Festival Foods will allow us to use their cart lobbies for popcorn show and sells. In Order to schedule a show and sell, please do so between now and September 23. We are only allowed to submit our schedule once at this time. Should we be allowed to schedule additional slots, we will send out another update via the Kernel Journal. Please see the sign up genius here. Please note, the Unit must read, fill out, and sign the Festival Foods Cart Lobby agreement form listed below the Festival Foods signups.
Update on Popcorn Supplies
At the August training events, we had not yet received the take to work tents. Those are now available at the office. Additionally, if you need other supplies, such as door hangers, more take to work tents, extra order forms, etc., those can be picked up at the Milwaukee Service Center or Kenosha Scout Shop.
Tutorial Videos & Online Sales
Please view the Pecatonica River tutorial videos for additional help. They have several videos explaining how to create Online Seller ID’s, the MY PR popcorn tools, as well as a number of other tools to help the unit and the Scouts have the most successful sale possible.
Unit Popcorn Kick-off
Holding a fun, informative Popcorn Sales Kick-off is a great way to excite your Scouts about the importance of selling popcorn and informing parents of how selling popcorn can help offset some or potentially all the costs of Scouting for families or the unit!
During the Product Sales Trainings held in early August, you saw an example of a Product Sales Kick-off that you can replicate in your unit to help build some enthusiasm behind your unit’s popcorn sales. Plan that kick-off now using the sample agenda in your Popcorn Leader’s Guide
- September 17-19 – Popcorn Blitz Weekend
