<quoted text> we will not be handed any product that does well, 1.)because they make good money without us pushing it, 2.) they would wanna charge us for a new line. Hence the IO relationship with them will remain toxic unless the faith that we had in them with our initial investment actually pays off. Thx for the heads up on the rebates pretzelbeard
Exactly! I was told that they are going to keep the distribution just the way it is. Why? Well, why would they give up an additional 19% when things are fine the way they are? It is a pisser when you see big displays of Snack Factory put up by one of your competitors ! Not right!! Bottom line guys , they care about only themselves and their bonuses.

Has anyone heard any rumors about them putting pretzel crisps on our trucks? I dont know how ut sells nation wide but were im at it srlls like crazy. One store displays it for the holidays and builds over 100 cases at a time.
When the CEO from S-L first announced that they had acquired Pretzel Crisps he mentioned they they were happy with the distribution system presently being used , and they would not be giving the line to the IBO's. He also gave a sample of how Frito Lay did the same with "Stacey's"
S-L is in the business of making money! If they gave it to us they would be giving us free Equity, and You and I know that's not going to happen. If they ever gave it to the Ibo's I would expect they would want to charge us for it

<quoted text>you technically own distribution rights in the territory not the stores in the territory. But when had my lawyer review the contract he said that the only way it could happen is if all of the accounts in your territory closed. Unless you live in a nuclear testing site hopefully it won't happen. But my lawyer said it was the most one way distributor agreements he has ever seen. He reviewed the contracts for the other routes I run
Here we go again. We have had this discussion often and we do not know or agree anymore than when we started. Most of the IBO's think they own a geographical area. SL contends we own accounts. There needs to be a lawsuit to decide that one (hopefully someone in PA will start one). I recently got an answer from SL legal when i questioned why many of the chain convenience stores that are in my contract as "protected" accounts are getting SL products from another distributor. They basically said that they did no think that applied to the contract. Huh?

I have a tax question but please do not give your opinion unless you are a tax accountant. Has anyway had a TAX ACCOUNTANT prepare their taxes and did they write off 100% of the purchase price or did they amoritize over 15 years?

Like Ive said previously the only reason you are talking lik you are is because you're doing good. Like alot of IBO's here in Mass we are also doing good. If and when the time comes where S/L effects you personally you too will be on here complaining.

I'm looking out for the IBO's as a whole. It's just a matter of time when S/L will take more from our pockets. Look, the original IO's started at 20% commission with no PA's. It went down to 19.5% and paying PA's. Now it's 18%, paying PA's, and tons of direct deliveries making 12% in this area. What's next? So, since you are truly an IBO, I understand you don't care about the whole as a group. Now I hope you personally get effected financially so you will understand why people are on here trying to fix something that needs fixing.

Count me in as one of the guys who's struggling. I don't deliver to a high income area, so people are watching every penny. The first 2 weeks of the month are ok cause everyone gets there food stamps, but the last two are horrible. No one has any money! That combined with losing space at my Walmart and another costly truck repair, I'm barely making it. Too many damn expenses being an IO. Is anyone considering selling your route? I would love to work for a company, but it seems those jobs and goingt away. Everyone is a IO. Blah.

You make 19% of what you sell bottom line why can't you and the rest get that? If you sell 1,000 you make 190 wow how can't you do the math. If you were to give a store an allowance, would you let them sell it at full price. Just think and quit saying you don't make 19%!

Turbo Tax all the way but You must amoritize because unless you paid in full you can but even if you did its better to amoritize.
