..........What if I try to partner with the seller?he will sub out the route to me and pay me a flat rate every week?then when the route is paid for I can get a substantial raise from him and he can still make money by doing minimal work.he has 4 grocery and good ones also a target.among cash stops I think its a good route,but from the insight you good ibos are telling me its way to high.if I can get this to a 12:1 will be better.I want to do this I don't want to kick my slef later
As an IBO I would never pay a flat fee to run my route. There's no incentive for you to work. I would pay you commission. The more you sell the more your check will be.
And I would think the seller wants to get out completely cause he's had enough of S-L tactics. Or maybe he just needs the money.
Best scenerio for you is to work for a IBO as an EMPLOYEE and learn the process and actually see what goes on in the warehouse and how mgmt works. You will be enlightened to the things that go on behind the scenes.
