Reminders for unit Popcorn Kernels –

  • Internet sale at 30% commission with direct shipment to purchaser
  • All donations made at show and sell locations are considered to be Military Popcorn Donations with the unit retaining a 38% commission
  • Every unit signed up will start with $160.00 profit by receiving one free case of Caramel Sea Salt (must be picked up by August 31)

The individual prize program is designed to supplement a unit incentive plan.   Build a great sale by developing a unit incentive program; recognize Scouts early and often for their success.

Internet Sale

The popcorn company is  “live” as of August 28 (customers can place orders).  The sale will run through December 12.  The internet site is www.pecatonicariver.popcorn.com

Pecatonica advises users units to go through Google Chrome for the best user experience when using their site.  You will need the first name of each Scout you would like to enter and the first two letters of his last name to create a seller id so individual Scout order amounts can be tracked and credited accordingly.  The code you will need to use is 596TWC.  Right now, you can only view/edit a unit’s profile. Internet sales information is discussed on page 12 of the 2016 Popcorn Book.
