I've seen Golden Flake mentioned here. Is it a partner brand in some areas? Where we are they have their own distribution system.

Hey,
Just wondering I have family in Va. Beach and Suffolk. My husband and I owned a route for 3 years in Florida. Do they have anything available in the area? We have been tossing around the idea of possible moving up to be closer to his parents now that they are getting up in age.

Snyders have been kicked out of Whole Foods. Snyders sold routes with Whole stores on them knowing they were getting kicked out. SNYDERS IS ONE OF THE MOST CROOKED AND MONEY HUNGRY COMPANY OUT THERE!!!!!!!

Looking for others in Florida that feel that they have been mislead, lied to, etc, has a contract with overlapping areas/stores with another IO. The Attorney Generals Office here in Florida may start looking into Snyder's-Lance and the way that they have done business here in Florida as far as the IO routes go. My e-mail is lightered_knot_enterprises@yah oo.com . Any other info you may want you can e-mail and I will get back with you.

we don't have any of the whole food stores in this area and nobody here knows anything about them. luckily it is not on my route now so they can't charge me for it later when it opens and we are no longer in the account. it really sucks that sl is charging people for stores that we don't service any more . i heard that in north carolina sl sold the distribution rights for wise chilps to another co., but will not adjust the cost of thenew routes. it just seems so unfair the wat this whole thing has been done, and before anyone says nobody is making you buy a routei am well aware of that. i have been in this business for almost 30 years, yhe last 9 with snyders. they always treated us well up until now. i guess we are all hoping it will get better

I can relate to this, Snyders has changed my mind on buying a route. I had this Snyders DM in my area and i was bitching about all the accounts that were closed or past reps have been thrown out of. He told me that most likely those accounts wont be taken off of the final price and that i would have to get back in them or find new accounts to make up for them. How in the hell are you supposed to get back into an account that closed its doors? Snyders-Lance is beyond a joke, words cant even describe.

I guess today at our warehouse the dm's bombarded IO's with 'confidentiality agreements'. After everyone signed them they all told one another lol.
Monday will be the day the IO's will find out their new projected territories. Anxious, curious, some pissed cause the years building relationships with store personnel all to have a computer possibly take it away from an IO. Stay tuned.......

Please let us and every other effected person(s)/"I.O.'s" know the current status on your lawsuit.
Anyone else considering and/or currently suiging Snyder's /Lance ("S-L"), for their unethical business practies, please post any and all information.
Our group of Independent Operator's ("I.O.'s") has started a lawsuit(s) plus a possible Class-Action-Law-Suit, plus working closely with the Missouri Sate Attorney General to correct and resolve the "S-L's" unfair, misleading, unethical and possibly illegal and/or criminal business practices.
We feel this is such a shame and hope that this situation could be resolvled other than in the court(s), because "S-L" and all of it's "I.O.'s" could have successfully accomplished the conversion to "I.O.'s", but only if "S-L" would have done so in a professional and fair manner that "S-L" and all of it's "I.O.'s" would both become very successful and prosper. AFTER ALL, BUSINESS ONLY WORKS IF ALL PARTIES PROSPER AND MAKE A PROFIT.
After reviewing this "Thread's" comments, resolving this situation outside the courts is exstemely slim.
Everyone, please give us/everyone your comments.

I think everyone should be careful here. There are posts requesting info and support for legal action against S-L. To anyone that responds make sure you are responding to a valid source. It wouldn't surprise me at all if S-L management were involved. Don't open yourself up to someone you don't know just because they post here.

Very good advice. You to could be S-L Management trying to steer people away from those that may offer help through fear tactics.

I can show anything anyone wants to show that I am not out to screw people. Name and contact info is all I need if a person wishes to be contacted by the Florida Attorney General's Office. I will pass the info on and if the AG's Office decides to take it on I will post the contact info here for the person conducting the investigation. I am just trying to do a little leg work to help the AG.

My posting name is the name of the LLC I was operating under as an IO. I am not here making up silly names trying to hide who I am. I am here for all to see, that includes anyone from S-L. I was lied to, mislead, and screwed, I want them to know the screwing headed their way.

If we are scared to help each other and work together then we are all screwed with no way out.

Again anyone from Florida that feels like they were lied to or mislead by reps of S-L and want help, let's work together to help each other.

Here is how I got out of my contract:

To Whom It May Concern,

I am exercising my right under Article 15 Subsections 2(C) and 2(F) to terminate the agreement between Lightered Knot Enterprises, LLC and Snyder‘s-Lance.

In relation to Article 15 Subsection 2(c), there was much misinformation provided in the sale of route 801932 to Robert Pitts/Lightered Knot Enterprises. The route has not produced the average that was stated and advertised. The route and the process by which the distributor was to be paid was grossly misrepresented by individuals employed by Snyder’s-Lance. Whether this was intentional or not has yet to be determined.

In relation to Article 15 Subsection 2(f), the supplying warehouses failure to maintain adequate supply of requested product which resulted in most orders placed being $500 to $1000 dollars short and preventing the distributor from adequately supplying the stores on the route which has caused a loss to the distributor and resulted in harm being caused to the distributor’s business.

Due to the above reasons the agreement will be terminated by Robert Pitts/Lightered Knot Enterprises, LLC
effective 12/16/2011. Lightered Knot Enterprises, LLC nor Robert Pitts shall be held liable for any cost or
loss to Snyder’s-Lance as representatives of said company are the reason the contract was violated.

I hope you didn't take my post personal Robert. There have been others and I just wanted to make everyone aware that sometimes people on message boards misrepresent themselves. I can vouch for Problem in Florida out of St. Pete. We worked out of the same warehouse and he's legit if anyone wants to join him.
