quitos is going to a min to take off. Do you have Takis? In your area? Best suggestion is chilli lime duros only... and try to get umm next to a takis display. If you ain't got a lot of blacks or mex forget about it. Cstore business is down 60% what about u guys?

Yes, I agree. I have no interest in displays. For the second largest snack company in the US we still get regarded as one of the worst. Lose space at every reset. These guys are putting zero back into the market. So zero in - zero out. I'm in when they are in. Until them keep loads low and expenses low. Heck, I'm considering a 4 day week with three day delivery. Anyone else doing that??
I only run 3 days a week. Cant afford anything else and drive 90 miles.

i run a bin they send old dated stuff the make us buy crap we didnt order and stay on our butts about money i kn ow things are differ from place to place but i seem to see less all the time my area is terrible about being sales stable and yes i am a bin sales man so all the guys that get to run everyday to a ware house stop crying you dont have to order a week ahead of time and then hope u sell it i do u dont have to worry about stuff sitting in a bin and having to sit on it because if u dont have it a walmart or grocery store is calling some big wig if u dont have some product that doesnt do anything but go stale i tried running lean like others have said but when your route burns 300 bucks a week it looks like they would look at some of our routes dirrernt than others
yeah the bin routes are not doing well. Each dist should have a warehouse. Ours is 4 hrs away. It puts u agaist a wall. If u order light and run out your screwed order heavy and have to much your screwed.

In my opinion you have to run at least 8,000 a week on sales in order to make a decent living, with low stales , by low I mean less then 2% of your overall sales. Having a some cash accounts is also a plus .
yeah they quote my route at $4600/wk. Right now I am under 4. Two weeks from sinking.

<quoted text>wow! You get paid... I have generated 3 checks in 18mths. For a total of under $2000. Rediculos. Last year at tax time my DM decided to sell 4ft chip space + 3ft promo rack + fems into 2 indy grocery stores. Around $2500 in sales..$$$ stops.. my next bill $2409 and the next 3mths picked all that shit up. Pounders, cc , doublers, tort chips, toms flat. I warned him this wouldn't work... but he told me he was trying to grow my route. I just paid another $1400 and need to work off anither $1400 + this weeks load. This company is a joke. These dms are trash and liars. Our rts are suppose to be close to home and evenly divided. Then why do I drive 90m west. 90m s. And hardly cover fuel
this isn't complicated buy only what you can sell. My truck is empty every Saturday! Empty being the key, you are not a salesman you are not a ibo you are a inventory manager. Run your business you can make money on any route

If a DM wants to sell huge displays in your stores that you don't feel will do well ask the DM one question:
"Will you guarantee the product, 100%". If he says no don't accept it. You don't make $ on what you check in the back door, you make $ on what goes through the registers.

So true!! Inventory is the key, keep it low, low. Now you might have items that run low in stores, but Snyders set up this system and until some things change that's all you can do.

this business is a game of averages some weeks 3k some weeks 6k your average would be 4500. That means you shouldn't load over 3750 any week. I don't get it how many chai. Account do you have because I load that at least three times a week!

And maybe 10 cstores all eow or e3w ave $100 a drop. They all have been sold in the last 3mths and decreased business by 60% and two new bypasses have opened droping traffic flow 65% to 80%. My cf has gone from ave $1500*1800 per week to $800 or less. And my grocery acct. Are down overall also. My big chips and pounders are not competively priced so they don't sell. In wm I have had sucess with soh pieces and pounders but now I can't bring in till its moded. Plus c/d have hurt.

you don't make money driving 95 miles to serve a c store. It sounds like you do a lot of miles. I own multiple routes and one has a lot of driving. So instead of using a box truck I bought a dodge caravan and took out all the seats and use that I stead it holds about 1500 in product!

yeah we don't own our toutes and my credit is no where near buying a truck or van... or trailer. They need to make this state a distrutorship. We were told even routes and close to home to cut cost.
