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....
thank you for the input.it is very much abliged.

<quoted text>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
he has spread sheets for everything he uses organization like I have never seen before.the mentor has been in the snack biz for 10 yrs.and he will sub it to me first so I can get my feet wet.he said he is willing to help me.guess he has to since his neck would still be on the line.I took a dry run with him.he services an upscale neighbor hood so I might be lucky.I have a ton to learn.but with being a rookie I will be forced to be careful about what goes on the truck and how I distribute it.

It can be good money. Make sure the route is a solid economic area. You are selling a premium priced line of products, if your customer base is driven by price; i.e. private label, promotion, it can lead to excessive stale losses. Make sure the valve of the route is fair and not inflated. I would not pay more than what SL would finance. I have been an independent distributor since 1997. I make good money, but it is a daily commitment week in week out year in year out. Thats both the beauty and the curse of this type of business. good luck! Again dont overpay for the route.

the price of the route is 118000.00 for the route? 51000 net after route payment, admin. charge, gas , storage, taxes, maintenance, truck payment, taxes? what ratio are you paying for the route. sounds high to me.

Y'all do realize you lost another percent on everything you take in walmarts when they gave you the 1% increase in commission. The way I see it, you gotta sell 8k a week to clear $1k after truck, gas, route payment and you still have to pay taxes on that!
