Ok stock holders heres the way to to save millions and increase the profits pass the 10 in 2010 goal.. would you speak up in the stock holders meeting if you knew a way to increase the company profits?? I would hope so, so here is the way... it's very of simple. You take this reorg team that we have and get them to really dig in and go to work..
1st, they need to find out who can drive and park their trucks home and i mean home, not down at the win dixie or the parking lot thats just a block away, i mean home, in their secured yard. This way you have created a happy employee that will more then likely stay employed then someone that has to wake up say 45 minutes earlier and drive 10 to 20 miles a day just to start to get ready to go work..
2nd, then you have the reorg team make his/her route around their house, 1 stop up the street, 2nd stop around the block, it's saves so much gas, wear and tear on the trucks, saves time where the sales rep can give that extra umph to their stores, and if planed right they could increase that 80 stop route to over 100. ok, you might say, what if they quit and you have that route design in that area? Well, what if the happier sale rep doesn't. The odds are the rep that has to drive to work will quits before the one that doesn't. It's really a big deal that these sales reps can drive their trucks home it's very possiable to make them lifetime employees and i wish lance really thinks about this before they put a stop to it. for the other reps you have the reorg team work with the reps that knows the area better than someone that doesn't thats using a computer to generate it. Yes this computer program is expensive they say and does a good job, but it also does need to be fine tune with the help of the reps that know the area. A pie shape including the home truck reps will work if we could all get together.
3rd, these home pack routes was a good idea back in the day to show publix that we're here to stay with good service, but with the gas cost it's time to move on and focus on cutting cost.. By no means we can not say we are done with publix,, it's going to take the bigshot himself, the king almighty, the number one uno to handle publix. To call a meeting with the big boys, i should say girl of publix to get most of us more space in the store. The big chief of lance has to stop sending the indian, which i'm sure the indian is doing what he can, but its not good enough when frito-lay has 40 foot section and the number one kettle chip cape cod has has a 3 bag facing. Something not right with that picture and it has to change. Hey chief, try inviting carol on one of your sailing trips, make her you guest of honor of one of your high class parties. Your indian has no more arrows, it's time for you chief to bring the peace pipe and have a good down to earth pow-wow with carol.. That's what it's goning to take to accomplish more space in publix. let's stop beating around the bush. Let there be no pride loss. Let the be no demoting, no firing, no pushing, no yelling and no hard feelings, just step up to the plate top dog, the big daddy himself, the cats meow, with no question asked and take care of this problem with publix yourself. Don't even start to think that the sales rep hasn't ask and hasn't done all he can to do get more space. We have been talking years and years now. Come on the king of all kings, just cancel and put everything on hold in your appointment book and give it one truely hard push to fix this embarrasing, unfairly, publix planogram.
