KING of BSA Popcorn Sales

Recommended Posts

A Virginia Scout sold $88,000 worth of popcorn last year, making him the #1 popcorn salesman in BSA.  Over the last few years, he's racked up over $200,000 in sales. This year, he's helping other scouts learn how to sell more.

I was hoping to see a couple tips in the article.

I am sure living in a rich area and having peers' parents who can afford the $21,820-$26,630 tuition for the school he goes to doesn't hurt him at all...

Now  you show me a kid who lives in downtown Detroit and sells this much popcorn I will be very impressed.

Sorry didn't mean to be a negative nelly.   Just popcorn is a hard sell depending on what side of town you live on here.  I happen to live in one of the poorer sides of town so its never been a hit here.

These massive amounts kill me honestly. There has got to be something else behind who is truly purchasing it.

My son did just under $5k last year and is on schedule for this year to hit it. To say my saturdays are full of popcorn is a understatement. He even decided to NOT do door to door in hopes another scout would do it and see just how easy it was.
