You will be lucky to gross 900.00 a week.And that is if you keep your end of week inventory under 50.00
True. If you do not need to be paid weekly and you would need an income to supplement other income it has value. I agree with no pity, go to work for them to determine actual weekly volume. Do not pay more than 10 to 1 weekly volume. It does work.

You are right.. not a sales driven model... the more money i make is when i dont order much product... that is just insane to me.... i did just read that sl sales were down 1 % from last year.. im willing to bet that it will be following that same trend this year... maybe they will eventually catch on... we are their backbone..
Once a month I have a warehouse blow out sale. It has nothing to do with sales, only to get paid and reset inventory commitments.

Hello all...I've just retired from a company owned bread route that I ran for 20 yrs. I'm bored at home and have been offered a S-L route by a dm I know from the bread days. He says the weekly rte average is $5600 and is weekends off. How much do you think net take home would be? What do you guys pay for business insurance and truck insurance. Thanks for the help!
If you're so bored you don't mind assuming debt and responsibility to earn peanuts on a $5,600 route go for it. The DM has a dog route and he's looking to pawn it off any way he can. Old retired guy who was a company man in his career is just the type of sucker (no offense) he's looking for.

I agree - it seems the more we have on sale the less I make. Have to handle that sale product several times - set up displays, etc. Easier to just sell off shelf. Im not aggressive anymore - all it ever did was get my route cut.

Problem is, in this economy if it's not on sale it just sits. People only buy whats on sale.

You have a very valid point, I am the same way, displays are not moving at all the shelf is much better.

Guys,guys,guys....we make less when things are on sale because we only get 81% of the promo allowance back! I lose an average of 300.00 to 400.00 a week because of sale items! Just imagine if Snyders covered 100% of the PA !

400 a week ? You would have to give 2500 in allowances to pay that much ...

I don't know for sure but if their claiming it does $8500 a week, at 11-12% you're looking at around $100,000. Plus you need a vehicle.

Snyder did cover 100% of the PA's before the merger. The new S-L contract added the 17% charge. Bend over new guys.

Lance said in their last earnings report that partner brand sales were down 8 million dollars in the fourth quarter which I estimate to be down about 10%. They said it was driven "by the loss of certain brands." Does anyone know which brands and if those are big or small brands? I've heard Green Mtn Salsa, Stacy's, Arura, maybe Jerklinks. Are these big sellers? Would the loss of these brands hurt your route sales, if so, by what percent?

Something for everyone to consider...percentages are different based on location but in this case...why do they take 19% promo share when you are not paid 19% on partner brands?

Not sure why you guys are so concerned about promo fees. Do any of you guys have Supervalu stores? Unless you have promos, your product just sits. Frito realizes this. That's why their chips seems like they're 3 for 6 almost every week. I have no problem with the promo fees, but for crying out loud, start competing with frito lay. When Synders Lance had good promos I usually bring 400 - 500 dollars on Monday. No good sales and I bring 100-250 dollars. How can we make a living when we only sell 250 bucks worth of product OVER THE WEEKEND!?!?!?
