Fake news just a sales meeting they do it every year.
So what happened at this meeting? Or did it actually happen?
I heard if u r in accts, over 45, x dsd x Keebler you will get promoted.
Not sales meeting. No press release on this one. Upper management only. No one talking about it.
It's their National Sales Meeting.. They do one every year. Calm down.
Haven’t heard anything at the KSR level. What level management is this meeting for? Any credible sources?
I'm gonna guess Kellogs has more then 3 sku's. Maybe 10?
i heard they are farming out distribution to 3rd parties in select areas. Wholesalers who pack it out too. Similiar to DSD. Could anyone confirm that?
so I guess the reps are really growing business in the new model? what kind of growth have they gained less the purchase of that Bar co?
You do realize how many skus Kellogg’s has correct? Including morning foods? The company wouldn’t go to Anderson merchandisers or anybody because they wouldn’t be able to handle it. They don’t handle any companies close to Kellogg’s size. By the way, those companies aren’t free.
I absolutely believe they will have their own representation. $60,000 plus benefits for one rep to cover half a state isn’t very much money for a Fortune 500 company. Zero percent chance they every go a third party route. They know how unsuccessful those companies are.
sure. Do u really think K is going to pay 60k+ salaries plus benefits to vet reps with families. Hire some doof out of a food marketing program for less money and less benefit costs (no families). Get ur head out of the sand.
I don’t see them going the Acosta/crossmark route. Major brands are even leaving those companies once their contracts are up to bring in their own representatives.
I'm sure reorganizing. Reps are cut so next target is Accts and inside crew. Next year reps will be replaced by brokers Acosta, ASM SAS etc... Less ha$$le. If you are 50+ start working on your resume now.
You are too old and expen$ive. If you are ex-DSD you are dead man walking. Cheaper to pay some kid out of some food marketing program. Remember, Don't make America not great again!
Haven’t heard anything. What else have you heard about it.
