    Pros

    Easy purchasing terms. No down payment, flexible credit terms. Anyone with a pulse can own a nature's own bread route.

    Cons

    Heartless management, dissapearing percentages has left me very little to live on. Some weeks because of slow sales, truck repairs or because they freaking feel like it; i may not even get a paycheck after 70hrs of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slavery is illegal in all 50 states. Treat us with respect instead of something you scrape off the bottom of your shoes.
