Inventory Control Help

Develop a plan to track the inventory your unit has in stock. Keep product in the hands of your Scouts to keep them selling throughout the sale. The goal is not running out of product yet not having product left over to return at the end.

Here are some helpful tips:

-Use the Sale Tracker Wizard (Available for download at danbeard.org/popcorn). This nifty excel wizard allows you input your unit roster and track each Scouts inventory and sales for both Show & Sell and Take Order. So when it’s time to place your unit order, you have the numbers right in front of you.

-Review last year’s sale data online or see general sale data posted on danbeard.org/popcorn.

-Share your information with others in your district at the popcorn rally. Share contact information so that you can trade product later in the sale.

-Use the Dan Beard Council Popcorn facebook page to chat with other kernels and trade product.

-Communicate with your Scouts regularly. Ask them report back if they have unsold product early so that you can transfer it to Scouts who have waiting customers.
