Yah I hate when they announce they buy companies and not give us exclusive rights to distribute it, I.e. pretzel crisps! Would be nice to have my initial investment to pay off. Willing to give them more time to figure it out though. Here in Rochester alone those pretzel crisps would be my route payment alone.

Got the word from a reliable source. Some one outside of S-L lol. S-L is buying Roberts. No changes financially. Nothing. S-L will teach everyone how to maximize their routes and to let all us know we signed our lives away. I meant signed a contract. Oh and to let us know how great of a company S-l is and to say trhank you for all the hard work from the IBO's. So don't expect any financial movement unless it benefits S-L. I don't pity fools who think otherwise. Don't know about you, but there are a bunch of us here that are not going to this meeting. It's the best statement we can make.
. B&G foods is buying Roberts for $195 mil ( they own Mrs Dash) your source was guessing

I think they will try to show us all the great things they have done in the past year to help us. Then they will blame us for not doing better. Then they will tell us how much we can do at store level and that they can't afford to do all the other stuff the other companies do (buy space, great promos, end caps, etc). Then they will tell us that they are going to add routes in every location so we have time to get more 25 dollar stops. Anybody else think they will just hand us more money??

Yea, what there doing works for them... There not going to change anything... And they wonder y everyone is unhappy and complain that routes are being sold all the time... Our warehouse is always out of the stuff we need causing me to loose money... And they have the nerve to blame us for sales loss... I liked when we were just lance

Im not naturally pessimistic, so I can't speculate on negativity. However current system does work for them and out of stocks only hurt us because of the tight grip on inventory for SOH. I love that point about giving us time for more $25 stops. That actually made me laugh out loud... We will find out Tuesday when that one city has their meeting before everyone else

What about shutting down Krunchers, and Grandes, after contracts were signed, they knew they were going to do that, Stacy's was not a big hit for me but every penny counts, so you have a valid point.

They can not just get rid of you. You are a IBO. You work for yourself. Not them. The only way that they can take it away from you. Is if you fail terrible at providing service or fall kn COD and can not afford to buy products.
