Did your DM show you in the contract where it states this info? I do not see it anywhere in mine...wonder if we signed different contracts or i"m just missing it? Can anyone else confirm this? If someone can show me in my contract that I only get 12% on direct ships by snyders so be it but why does it state I have "exclusive" rights to distribute in the stores I bought...maybe I need to bring out my "webster's" and look up "exclusive" again...hmmmm....not...this could get interesting??

Been reading these posts the past few days and it seems to be a nationwide issue with owning one of these routes. I own one and have to say I have been dissapointed so far.It's hard to believe that S/L is treating their IBO'S the way they are.

But as bad as it is I also know it could be much worse.So the best thing we can all do is just hang in until something better comes along.

S/L will not change they are making too much profit and can care less about our bottom line.

Your DM is telling you a big fat lie, I just read the agreement and there is nothing in there about the margins that we receive, just that we will get a pricelist from time to time. This company has screwed the very people that make them all the money, that my friend should make you feel great. Do not believe anything your DM tells you because they are all working for S-L and they have no say in anything anymore,they just shrug their shoulders and say oh well there is nothing that I can do about it, that is a wonderful way to manage .This company really sucks to work with.

How much do you think you are making @ Walmart on lance crackers after you pay your share of the allowance ? It's about the same as that 12 percent they paid you for that pallet ... The real issue here they should pay 20 percent across the board like most other companies do when you purchase a route ! Snyders paid out alot of money from last lawsuit so treating people wrong is nothing new to these clowns ..

The way they are doing things you would be smart to keep your route at a manageable level and work the fewest hours you can so in your mind (and in your wife's mind, if applicable) it seems worth it. It's not worth the effort to grow the business anymore because we are not beng supported by the company - when we are the only ones not serving club stores and also having product direct shipped then the writing is on the wall. I hope you sleep good at night Mike Warehime, Ed Good and all the others that turned a once proud company into the laughingstock they are on the street. I just wonder if any major accounts read our forum??
It does semm, at times, we are better off to work less and sell less. With poor warehouse hours, not giving 100% back on PA's , making 10- 12% on some products why would one bust his ass ? The whole system is fucked up ! Snyders wants it both ways, they treat the IO's as employees ( without the benefits), not as business partners. Until that changes they will continue to have disgruntled INDEPENDENT BUSINESS OWNERS

Snders does not hold your inventory so it should not matter what your HH shows

Does anyone know what happens if you turn in your computer and say bye bye? Management cant seem to answer me so like everything else, I'm left to guess. These routes are unsellable and I have another opportunity I can't pass on. I've tried for over a year to make this work but,.......

I didnt give enough detail...selling product in store..showing as an oversell..sales show on invoice..sales show on sales register however sales on route summary are less than sales register...sales do not carry over...however shows as an inventory overage rather than being counted as sold product. Thinking there is a "bug" in the software that needs to be addressed?! Soon!!!

If you walk away they will charge you for a DM running it until they sell it, decreasing any, if not all equity you have, and then they will screw you without KY.

DON'T DO IT!! Negotiate with the company on a buyout that will enable you to walk away with a small profit. Hire a lawyer if necessary. If you just walk away you're leaving yourself wide open to legal action. Don't let them win. Approach this professionally and you'll make out alright. Approach it like a loser, schmuck and they'll walk all over you.

Has your area recently received new computers? My area received them about 3 months ago and I have noticed bugs too. For example when doing a credit at a gas station(quicktrip) I gave credit for like 6 different items totally like 12 items total. It added all of it into my inventory at the end of the day and when I zeroed it out it didn't show any kind of inventory difference. This happen like 2 weeks ago. Did another credit in that same store today so I'm gonna check to see if it did the same thing tomorrow. Didn't think about it til I saw your post. I let my DM know via email on all the computer issues along with other things so he can pass it on. If its something consistent or real major I call route support
