I agree with Booty leaving. The rep from Booty told us awhile ago this was going to happen. He feels S-L doens not respect his brand no more so they're going to the open market.

Another item that might be leaving also is Kettle Chips. Alot of you might say who cares, but remember we all bought our routes with the Kettle Chip sales included. So again we will be losing more money.

One of the important topics back in the day was IBO's bought the routes according to the weekly ave including all partner brands. As partner brands leave who suffers? This was another point the small group of IO's wanted to change while the majority of us sat on our hands with no support.

Like I said, my route is paid for. I don't feel sorry for the people who didn't want to join and try to change the contract so it wouldn't be one sided.

2 warehouses closing in Mass cause of conditions. Now IBO's have to expense more money traveling to another warehouse nowhere near their territory. Never ever changes for corporate to save and stick it to the IBO........

No matter how you run your business the bottom line is you only get 17% commission and a lot less on some items.

So your best bet is find another sucker fool enough to sign a contract like snyder/lance has. and by all the routes for sale Independents are having a hard time finding suckers.

Good posts. I have a couple of questions if someone would be so kind to answer. I don't see Booty and Utz on the L-S web site. Are those brands IO's are selling for L-S, if so, what percentage of total sales do those brands represent? Or are you an IO for those brands separately from L-S? Kettle seems to be there. It is a rumor they are leaving? What are S-L's biggest brands? Commissions? Did the company just recently unilaterally lower commissions? That doesn't sound right. Did you buy your route through L-S or a bank? What is the average down payment(% of total) for a route? How does the cost of an L-S route compare to Pepperidge Farm or Frito etc? rmacarthur@altresearch.com

I also hope someone is reading this with some pull. Why are we being charged promo fees on partner brands when SL is getting 100% credit from the brands? Why are we paying these fees when SL isn't? This is one of the many unfair practices SL screws us over on.
I've been pissed about the allowance thing already and did not know this info. Pisses me off even more.

<quoted text> 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??
My contract says nothing specific about a percentage.......for anything. As a matter of fact it says they can do this (crossdocks) and says nothing about us getting any commission. So from their standpoint they are doing good giving us 12%. Our stanmdpoint, we are getting screwed because I would rather take it in myself and make full commission and also get the sales added to my equity.

The real issue wrote:
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 ..
Totally agree with this post.
