LAST CALL 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 before tomorrow 5PM. 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 and Kenosha Scout Offices.
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
- October 21 - Take Orders Due
- October 21 - Prize Survey Opens
- October 23 - Popcorn Returns
