I currently work in financial services, make a decent living (100K +) and have great benefits. However, Im miserable. Ive been looking into buying a route (Snapple, Vitamin Water or possibly Pepsi). Some of these routes are priced at almost $600,000 and require nearly 50% down in cash. Am I crazy??? Does anyone have any experience with routes? Im curious why so many routes are for sale? Ive met with several owners and seen their financials for the past years....some are pulling in over $200K after all expenses.
