I'm LMFAO!!! Everyone of you so called business men who supposedly read and signed a contract are morons. There's probably more than one contract out there but we had around 30 pages. Every paragraph written was on the IBO. There was ONE paragraph which stated S-L will do their best to supply the IBY with product! That's it! So for you people out there who LISTENED to a S-L rep sell you on how great this company is are morons. I was lucky to pay off my new route when S-L bought the old one from us. I'm lucky all of you who are NOW paying allowances and paying for their inventory, we were already doing that from day one. I'm pissed alot of my personal friends got crap routes and are struggling. I don't pity the morons who say their business owners and read the contract and still signed on the dotted line. It clearly states EVERYTHING is on the IBO. If you didn't know you had to pay the promo fees etc then you're a bigger idiot for signing. And there were so many verterans out here saying don't go to the meetings cause all corporate cares about is attendence, you're an idiot for wasting your time.

Dan Morgan is rich cause he doesn't care that he started as an independent like all of you. He cares about greed and the coporate ladder. If we all lived in Anartica he would sell ice to his own mother to make a profit. So why wouldn't he take form you morons? The difference between IBO's and so called 9-5'ers? We paid for our stinking jobs. Who's smarter? The 9-5'ers who gets paid salary, 401K, paid vacations, benefits? Or us socalled business owners who say, "I own my own business. I work 7 days a week sometimes. Every expense is on me. I took a commission decrease from 19.5% down to 18%." Get with it. Until some one starts a committee it's all staus quo..........

If the incentive program is true and set at 1%, the risk of running up your stale cost isn't worth the reward!!!! 👎👎 👎guess they think we are all stupid!!

Just a thought...We all want our routes to grow..if u want to just fill shelves..I doubt u will get much growth by doing that...pushing promos...displays are the way to go! Example..I have a store that I have very limited space but average 1200.00 a week. I would be lucky to run 700.00 a week if I just filled shelves..so..500.00 a week in displays makes that store worth say 19200.00 compared to 11200.00..just imagine if u have say 7 stores and all of them together would be an extra 56,000.00 in equity based on those numbers. If equity isn't why u want to grow ur route maybe Uts, Frito Lay would be a better fit for u? Just remember, they have issues too. Snyders has a lot of issues and could help us ibo's if they chose too..however, its on us to take care of ourselves and grow our own routes. It would be nice to have their support and understanding but we all know they care about "their" stock price and that's it! Sure the incentive is a nice gesture and they wouldn't have to do it but for everyone that does make an extra 500, 1000 or whatever how much do u think snyders made if they are willing to give that to u? Again, just some thoughts but its up to us to make our business work just would be nice if s-l worked with us a little better! The one question is...why are Pepperidge routes going 40-1 and snyders routes go 15-21 to 1 depending where ur at? We need S-L support to make our routes more desirable to get to that level..Hopefully someone in S-L thinks about that...just imagine how that just might make the stock price even go higher?

Frustrated - agree with some of your points but not all. Obviously you haven't gotten hosed by Snyders Lance and you felt a Kum Ba Yah moment today but they just love your line of thinking. Many guys only have 3 or 4 supermarkets so not able to accomplish all those great things you are doing. Snyders "stole" 2.5 percent and "gave" 1 percent back. Still makes them a thief and not to be trusted in my book. They are not interested in the IBO. Only in themselves, the board, and shareholders. You my friend are way low on the list. Kum Ba yah???

Unfortunately, I have been! Believe me, I was not happy and they all knew that and was told off the record I was getting screwed..comforting :) However, Im much wiser and now know for the future with the help of a very good corporate attorney where I stand. I will say..S-L can do what they want but we as IBO's do have recourse if S-L would try to strong arm us IBO's...just like poker..never show ur best card..keep them wondering and when its time...:))) However, hopefully it never comes to that...I just want to make my share and so do they..so..lets work together a little better and we all might just be a little happier :)

At zone they low the commission on Snyder's from 19.5% to 18% a 7 .7 percent cut. Now they want to give you 1%-2% percent back. What an insult. Look at the money the people at the top make. No pay cut there!! I will increase my business by selling anything except cape or Snyder's. The only way you can hurt these people is the stock price. Let get a partion to thier biggest share holder other than Warehime and his family. That would be Black Rock Finicial. I know a VP over there. Does anyone else have connection to BR

You got a check if you followed some slug who was running the route last year. Wait until you have to follow your numbers from this year. If your route was running 10000 last year you must run 11000 this year. Good luck! Lol
