How long is the fundraiser?
We recommend giving your sellers 1 week to sell their popcorn allocation and turn in the money.
TIP: To ensure timely and accurate money turn-in, use a tracking sheet.
How much should I order?
The size of your order depends on the number of participants in your group and how many items you want them to sell. Since Chicago Style popcorn comes 24 bags to the case, consider issuing 12 bags to each seller.
To determine how many cases to order, divide the number of participants in your group by 2. Round up to the next case number if needed.
You can also use our ‘Profit Calculator’ at the top of the page.
Do you take back unsold product?
We do not accept returns. Our goal is to maintain the same high level of product freshness for every customer. The USDA also has very strict guidelines that we must adhere to.
TIP: Consider issuing unsold popcorn bags to participants who volunteer to sell them in exchange for a portion of the profit.
Can participants earn prizes?
We don’t offer any prize programs with our Chicago Style popcorn fundraiser.
How much do they sell for?
We suggest selling Chicago Style popcorn for $10 a bag.
How many popcorn bags are in a case?
Why do bag weights differ by flavor?
The volume and number of kernels in every bag is relatively equal. The difference is in the weight of the coatings used for each popcorn flavor.
For example, cheese or savory flavors weigh less than sweet coating on popcorn.
Can flavors be mixed in a case?
No. All flavors are preselected and cases cannot be broken up.
How long does popcorn stay fresh?
Chicago Style popcorn has a 6-9 month shelf life. To maintain freshness, popcorn should be stored in a cool dry place.
Is popcorn gluten free?
Our popcorn contains no gluten, MSG, or GMOs.
Is there a minimum order?
There is a 1 case minimum order requirement.
How much money can we make?
Estimating your profit is easy. Consider the following example.
A sponsor with 35 participants wants everyone to sell 12 bags each:
35 participants x 12 bags / participant = 420 bagsThe profit would be 45% because you would need to order 18 cases (Volume discounts apply).QUICK TIP: Enter your group size and participant goal into our ‘Profit Calculator’ located in the top right sidebar.
420 bags ÷ 24 bags / case = 17.5 cases (Round up)
18 cases x 24 bags / case = 432 bags
432 bags x $10.00 / bag = $4,320.00 retail
$4,320.00 x 45% profit = $1,944.00 profit
