We have 11 Walmarts out of our agency here in Rhode Island, and we have th pl in all but one of them, with no signs of losing it. I just sell cake Hostess and Drakes, I have been here for 18 years and just had the best January of sales I have ever had. They have run some great promotions, especially with the 100 calorie cake and it is flying. They did just up the snack cake to $1.39, and its hurting it right now.
SNACK CAKE IS GETTING PRICED OUT OF THE MARKET.$1.39 HERE IN MN ALSO. WHEN SOMEONE GOES TO BUY A SNACK FOR LUNCH WHY PAY 139 WHEN YOU CAN GRAB SOME CHIPS FRITO 99CENTS AND A BAKERY DONUT FOR ABOUT 30 CENTS MORE. THEY NEED TO DO WHAT POP SEEMS TO BE DOING IS 2/2.22 ON 20 OUNCE SODAS OR REGULAR PRICE FOR 1. I HATE BUYING 2 BUT ITS HARD TO PASS UP THE SAVINGS. MAYBE HOSTESS SNACKS FOR 3 FOR 3$ OR SOMETHING.

So what does the latest news mean? Will I go back to a route soon?(Driver for 15 years that didn't make the cut)
I THOUGHT I HAD HEARD WE WERE GOING TO GET BACK INTO SO CAL MARKET AFTER WE EXIT BANKRUPTCY. This was another F up by are Leaders at the top that get paid the big bucks even if the company is losing money hand over fist. making bad decisions is rewarding if your an IBC exec. Pulling out of SO Cal was idiotic. I will be interested how these fools get back in to the market. Im sure we will get 2 feet in every store that lets us back in. We will find out Thursday that we are moving forward. Congrats to all that we stuck this out and hung in there. we are now part owners and I hope we can make this work now.

I`ve been with this company for 24 years an watched it go from being the a leading bread company in your area to getting your butts kick by Auntie Millies and Sara-Lee , than they do away with Seeded Italian witch our branch sold about 2,400 a week between 9 routes to this crappy italian that we can`t give away. Who`s making all these decisions we have to clean house starting with Jung at the top.Oh-ya Jung thanks for the $140 a week pay cut ,NOT !!!
