Popcorn Kernels!!!!

With the flurry of emails, phone calls and social media posts I am hearing and seeing some good success during the first week of the popcorn sale.

Inventory Tracking
Tracking inventory and sales is by far one of the most time intensive parts of the popcorn sale. Be sure to have a good plan to ensure success.
Take Order Selling Basics
The take order selling is one of the most classic ways of selling. Some units prefer this selling method because all orders are collected on a presale basis. The unit does not assume the risk with having inventory.
