Snack box update

Recommended Posts

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. 


That's what I do. I go by dates. I let honor boxes accumulate for 2 to 3 weeks so I can fit in bulk and snack and pop machines.

Once you get the "hard routes" established, route building will be SO MUCH easier for you.  You'll be able to target areas that need sales, and if you overbuild an area, it's simple enough to break off and start forming a new route.  And Rodney, as far as the "eliminate paperwork" , believe it or not, we've been using account cards since I  started back in the early '90s.  We cash each account out through a program (one we designed years ago) and maintain history in our computer, but I still like being able to look at an account card for information.....LOL, this old dog is set in his ways. [emoji4]  


Boy, breaking off and starting a new route? Sounds like a problem.....lol a good problem!!!

WOW! Bryan that is a great box average at $22.25.  Looks like things have settled down with the hard routes and now your ROCKING IT again.  Nice work! :)

Still tweaking the routes, but much more organized.  Thanks  for helping through that by the way.

Nice work, Bryan!   Looks like those "Hard" routes are starting to settle in for you.  I hope that you are finding things to run alot easier for you and providing you more time to sell, sell, sell! :)  Your Box Average is GREAT, especially for the Summer months (which is when we see our volume dip a little due to the heat).  Excellent shortages as well!  Keep up the good work, buddy! :)

Thanks buddy, I'm so glad I took your advice, it 's a lot easier being able to work on just a certain route that needs tweaking instead of just guessing at each location.  It's coming together, and yes I have also noticed a decline in sales when it's hot especially Texas hot lol
