Have owned a route for little less than a year. Been reading all the posts and two things I agree with.

I do have a question to put out there. Has anyone had an attorney look at the portion of the contract that states what exactly what you have bought? SL will tell you that you bought accounts and not a territory but the contract clearly lays out a geographic description and map. Any thoughts?
The Contract states you are buying "Authorized Outlets with in a geographical territory" If it is not on the list of customers that were purchased, you dont have the exclusive rights to that account.

Ok, the XTRA Fulls have been on my Walmarts floor for over a month now and I've sold maybe five. What a disaster! They better print some coupons cause I'm not taking all this crap back in my truck when they expire in September.

Unlike PF and Bimbo you're not buying territory. Down here there are major chain routes and C-Store/Walmart/Target routes. If you buy a major chain route with Publix,Sweetbay, etc and a Walmart opens up on it you're screwed. That is exactly what is happening now in Clearwater. A WalMart is opening up in an intersection that ahs a Publix and an Albertsons on it. The S-L IBO that services those 2 markets is going to see his business fly away across the street a she won't be servicing the Walmart. Another reason to stay away from these routes.

No, you are buying a geographical area and any store in that area, existing or new will be your store!! I have a map with the boundaries marked off that SL gave me.

There is lots of disagreement on this territory/accounts business. Of course SL will tell you you bought accounts but contract to me gives you a territory, why else have maps and geographical description. That is why I asked if anyone had had an attorney look at it and give an opinion.

To Know the Facts and Future. What I posted is true pertaining to my area, the west coast of Florida. That is how the routes here are set up. Since both of you don't have the courage to identify where your route is, I can't comment. Contracts are different from one part of the country to another.

If the territory is in a economicially sound area, you can make money.
