The Popcorn Sale is Important!

There are plenty of good reasons for your Scouts to take part in the annual popcorn sale. Scouts can earn money for camp and activities throughout the year. Scouts also learn valuable skills like teamwork, goal setting, time management and salesmanship – just to name a few. Scouts gain confidence and a sense of accomplishment, the popcorn sale is not about selling popcorn, it’s about promoting Scouting!

Selling popcorn also helps the Orange County Council raise money for improving our camps properties, offering more extensive training for our volunteer leaders, and keeps program and activity costs down. Best of all, there is NO upfront cost to your Unit to participate!

Store Front Sales

Scouts are Courteous and Kind… when booking your time slots, please take no more than 3 time slots per day/location (no more than 6 hours) in any given day to allow others access to the same store.

Some stores may require a Certificate of Insurance before you can sell in front of their store. You may receive this from Council by filling out the Request for Certificate of Insurance form located here. In most cases the store does not want to track the units coming to sell, so selling will be on a first come, first sell basis and to be scheduled with the store location of your choice. Stater Bros. and Irvine Property storefronts are the only council coordinated booth sales.

Contact your District Kernel Contacts to schedule Stater Bros. storefronts. 

If the store manager requires a copy of the approval letter from Stater Bros please click here: Stater Bros. Approval 2019

For Irvine Property Store Front Locations 

Please reach out to Tina Blanco at: bsastorefrontsales@gmail.com

Popcorn Pantry

During the Popcorn sale you may encounter a need for more product or have some extra product that hasn’t sold as quickly as you thought. Help out your fellow Scouts and EXCHANGE!

You can go to the Popcorn Pantry on Facebook to post a need for excess product. This is a closed group so you will need to ask to join, sign up early so you don’t have to wait! If you’re not on Facebook, don’t worry! Your District Kernel can help get the word out. Use the Transfer function in the popcorn system to complete the transaction. All units should confirm cases are full and product is in perfect condition at the time of the Exchange. Only full cases can be exchanged, no single items.
