  1. I have all of my locations in my garmin gps. I make my routes out on vend trak and put them in the order I want them, then use my gps just to get to the location until I learn where it's at. I'm always opened to suggestions and have used so many suggestions from guys on here that has really changed my business, which is why I love this site so much
  2. Hey Rodney, no I did not have hard routes, in certain towns that weren't around here they were basically hard routes, but i would add different locations, depending on what was due according to the service due date. Then i would arrange the route in that order. I just finished my first week of "hard routes", and I can tell it's going to be a lot easier once get over the growing pains lol.
  3. Weekly update: I'm not doing updates for the next few weeks and here's why. I am in the processing of putting together "hard routes". For the nearly 2 years I have been doing this, I have always done "floating" routes and it has worked, but it was really a pain having to figure out a route every day. Based on the advice of someone on here that's a lot more knowledgeable than I am and has been doing this a lot longer, I am now assigning each location to a permanent route. In doing so it's causing me to service locations that are not ready to be serviced, driving down my total numbers so my figures aren't true figures right now. I will start updating again once I get through one cycle of these permanent routes
  4. The 2% is kind of leading in a way, I had one box that was supposed to have $50.00 and there was $103.00 and another that was overpaid by $18.00 that helps offset the accounts that were short quite a bit lol.
  5. Weekly update: 239 locations Grossed $1,990.00 Avg $24.00 per box Theft ran 2% serviced 87 boxes
  6. Weekly update: 236 locations. Grossed $1,659.00 Avg $21.85 per box. Theft ran 10% serviced 76 boxes.
  7. Well, the town I live in is 80,000 and then I have another town that is about 45 miles from me that has 90,000. The rest of the towns are between 7, and 15,000. Do you have any towns in surrounding areas?
  8. Weekly update: Only ran 3 days this week due to being sick. 235 locations; Grossed $1,216.00, Avg. $19.00 per box theft ran 9%, serviced 64 boxes. I also just wanted to clarify something for those of you who keep up with my updates, that my normal work week consists of 4 days of running routes. I take one day a week and get new locations.
  9. Weekly update: 236 locations. Grossed $1,423.00 Avg; $18.55 per box. Theft ran 10% serviced 77 boxes.
  10. hey Brian,

    When you are locating, do you carry in one of your filled small boxes?

      Yes, sir, I always take a box with me.

  11. Weekly update. 229 locations. Grossed $1,651.00 Avg. $20.80 per box. Theft ran 7% serviced, serviced 70 boxes
  12. The town I live in is 80,000 I have another town that i'm in that's 96,000, the rest of them are between 1,500 and 15,000. Still trying to decide how far out I want to go. Right now my longest drive to get to a town i'm in is 48 miles. So do you put 20 candy items in boxes that have a higher shortage? I put more candy in my boxes I took out today so we will see how that goes. I think I will cut down on my pastries and add more candy. Like I said earlier, I put 40 items in my bigger boxes and 20 in my small boxes. I always start out with small boxes so I can see what type of location it's going to be then I try to upgrade it, but I have some that are good for the small boxes, but not sure how the bigger boxes would work there. So here is a break down of a typical 40 item box I put out. Please let me know what changes you would make. 10 cookies 12 chips 8 candy bars 2 cheez-it 2 gardettos 3 crackers ( I wrap 2 packages together) 3 peanuts or kar's
  13. And how often to service your boxes? I have mine on either a 2 week or 4 week cycle. Do you sell any pastries at all?
  14. Great info. I am still curious as to what you boxes look like lol. I put 40 items in my boxes. There is no way I can get 70 items in my boxes at least not the items I pack it with. How many candy bars do you pack in yours? I pack between 5 and 8 in mine, depending on how bad the shortage is at the particular location. Do ou use the wood grain boxes or something bigger? I really appreciate all of this information, it's helping out a lot.
  15. Weekly update: 226 locations: Grossed $1,340.25 Avg. $18.60 , shortage ran at 10% serviced 72 boxes
