  • 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?

                      and they say Oklahoma is the fattest state in the union. I guess there must be a bunch of Jareds' around eating subway every day to lose weight.

                      Here are results for DD from the center of my zip code, all stores within a 50 miles radius


                      1600 S Sunnylane Rd Del City, OK 73115

                      405-672-4919


                      8.09 M/12.94 KM <----- NOTICE 8 MILES AWAY



                      3612 N May Ave Oklahoma City, OK 73112

                      405-942-5413


                      12.58 M/20.13 KM <---- 12 1/2 miles away


                      4400 Nw 39th St Oklahoma City, OK 73112

                      405-946-8550


                      13.69 M/21.9 KM <---- over 13 1/2 miles away


                      these are all that are within 50 miles of my zip code, the first 2 listed are about 15 miles apart and the second two are about 3 miles apart.

                      There are a minimum of 50 Subways within 15 miles of my zip code. The locator only shows up to 50 and the farthest away from me is 11.74 miles away.
                      If what you did yesterday still looks big, you haven't done much today.
