    Default Pepsi and dunkin donuts

    I heard that dunkin donuts wants to deliver all the pepsi products in their dunkin donuts trucks. I'm not sure if it's just regional or not. i heard it from a dunkin donuts truck driver. he said that they want to minimize deliveries to the stores. He said they already deliver milk,cream and juice. if this happens that is a ton of work lost for the pepsi delivery system. has anyone else heard this?

    7-11 already does this in parts of California. Vendors deliver product to a 3rd party warehouse, and each store's order is combined together into one delivery.

    Honestly, though.. How much Pepsi does a typical DD really sell?

    I was going to make the same remark. My arm chair two cents would guess that DD on average moves less than 3 dozen bottles +/- combined of soda pop and water per day. (More water than soda for sure.) The few times I have gotten a bottle of Pepsi at DD, it was near the use by date.

    each store has small volume but there are so many stores!! i would guess the total volume and time devoted to delivering could drop a couple route drivers from each barn.

    A couple of drivers? What is there, a DD on every block up there?

    I'm sure the drivers would be more than glad to get rid of the hassle of dealing with an account like that. I don't know how they place their orders (tel-sell or account manager), but either way, time could be better spent at accounts where you have to do actual selling, rather than just order taking.

    Cokeman...what part of the country do you live? I wonder the benefits of DD handling their own delivery?
