What is The Route Exchange?

The Route Exchange is an online route sales marketing and advertising service.  We work with independent operators that own service routes all over the country.  We provide buyers for bread routes, chip routes, ATM routes, FedEx routes, vending machine routes, landscaping/pool routes and more.

What are route sales?

Independent routes are small businesses that can provide a great number of benefits to their owner.  A flexible schedule, great compensation and a self employed/no boss lifestyle are just a couple of the benefits you may find in a route career.  Some of the routes are wholesale distribution while others could revolve around ATMs, package deliveries (FedEx), vending machine sales, etc.  These businesses are service based and accounts always transfer to the new owner.

Who can use The Route Exchange?

The Route Exchange is tailored for individuals that are trying to buy or sell a small business.  We specialize in route sales but will work with any businesses that benefit from our services.  Independent operator’s for companies such as Bimbo Bakeries, Flower’s Bread, Martin’s, Mission, Pepperidge Farms, Snyder’s-Lance, FedEx and many others can list their businesses on our website.  We also work with pool and landscaping business owners to ensure they receive the best offers possible for their business.

Who runs The Route Exchange?

The Route Exchange was established and is managed by Jay Armour.  Jay has owned, operated and sold several of his own independent routes.  These routes have included Brownberry, Snyder’s-Lance, and Bimbo Bakeries routes.  The Route Exchange was actually created while Jay was still running his own Snyder’s-Lance route in the Chicago area.  Anyone who works for The Route Exchange knows what it takes to work these routes and we know how to sell them.  We want every buyer and seller that we interact with to be happy with the service they receive.  Our goal is to make the entire sales process easier for both route buyers and route sellers.  If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact Jay directly at Jay@TheRouteExchange.com or 630-333-8207.
