Troop 664 North Olmsted OH

Popcorn – Totally New This Year!

The Council has listened to the feedback provided by Scouting units and COMPLETELY REVISED the popcorn funding mechanism. In a nutshell, the program is MUCH SIMPLER than in previous years. There will be more details forthcoming, but here are some highlights:

Only THREE ITEMS to sell

  • Caramel Corn
  • Microwave Butter (6-pack)
  • Donation to Greater Cleveland Food Bank

Only ONE price point

  • $10 for each product, period.

Larger Variety Online

  • A larger lineup of products will be available for online sales.
  • Scouts can have their own personal selling page at
  • Scouts will be credited with online sales through their page, with the Troop getting commission

No Order Forms

  • The sale is all “show and sell,” which means we order the product up-front so the Scout has product to sell immediately.
  • The customer hands you $10, you hand them the product.

Highest Commission in the Country

  • Troops will now make 50% COMMISSION, which is the highest popcorn commission of any Council in the country.
  • $5 from every $10 item sold will be returned to the troop.
  • In the past, popcorn was a 33% commission to the troop.

Simple is good…


We need a new “Popcorn Kernel” to manage this program (which is really not very difficult). I have been the Kernel for many years, but Noah is turning 18 in October and another parent must take over this task. I still plan on being involved in the Troop, but I need to step back from popcorn. WE NEED YOU! I am more than happy to assist and advise, so you won’t be without support. This is Scouting after all, and as Mr. Campbell says, “we always have our wingman.”

Thank you!
