Question..I see a few people complain about direct shippers into your Walfarts or wherever else..

I never kill the direct shipments to my shelves, I never look for store manager to see where he will put direct shipment. I never pull out any stales or whatever from direct shipments.

I tell recieving that I have absolutely nothing to do with that product, I can't touch it since I did not bring it in, and its your problem. If they really give me crap, I say its not authorized in my handheld. If I'm not the one delivering it, I wont have anything to do with it. And you know something, if we did have the power to bring in a pallet of xtrafulls or something like that, I wouldn't do it. Storemanager might yank your stuff from the store 14 days later and you're stuck with 20 cases of paperweights.

Utter bullshit. The most vocal people here and the other warehouses in our zone are the old timers that run 12-15k a week. Theyare the ones truly being screwed. Not only do they pay twice to three times what most pay in promotion sharing because when on sale they sell three times as much as the next route, but also have to hire help and have more expensive equipment.

I would not want a route running 12-15. That is just stupid. 9-9500 run well is plenty. Anything over that you are inviting Snyders in to cut or add routes. Use your head a little guys.

Thursday delivery sucks! You will basically have to front the money for a load instead of using one load to pay for another.

Watch it there is one I saw for sale in Florida, that was around 180,000. The guy bought it for a family member, and has only had it a couple of months, my guess is he is trying to recoup everything, be careful.

There are way to many variables to tell you if you are buying a route worth the money you are spending.....Is it just grocery stores or wal marts and c stores? how much money do you need to put down...how much are you financing?? whats the routes average sales...how long has the seller been on the route.......etc....etc....etc. ..

couple points to help you....you are buying a job, SO everything will not be rainbows and butterflies like some guys on here want it to be...EVERY company that has route drivers or salesmen is actively trying to cut their pay in someway if not cut your job(if you are actually an employee)....so get used to it and control what you can control.....And generally speaking if you are a people person, good with forecasting sales, provide the stores with great service, dealing with bumps in the road, and have some working capital (cause starting a route and continuing to run cost money)....you can have success and make a good amount of money owning a snyders/lance route....

But note that you can seriously overpay for a route that is not worth it and bankrupt yourself fast....SO do twice as much research on the route then you think you should....

what does the mentor know about the business because being successful at this is less about being a good salesman and more about managing your business

Has anyone walked away or sold a route ? What happens with any money owed to s&l ? I took a job offer and had my route set to sell to a new buyer. Long story short, s&l dragged their feet on the paperwork even though the buyer had signed letter of intent, etc. they took their time and them they forcefully bought the route back last month and sent me a bill for $13k. The buyer that I had lined up was going to pay enough for the route so that I could walk away even. I'm thinking its lawyer time, but anyone have any suggestions? I'm not giving these guys a dime .
