big c i have no customers in smithfield at this time and dont plan on any. if some call i might take them on but it would have to be worth it for the drive. i try to stay in suffolk and franklin , trying to keep route tight and grow customers at the same time. driveing is big money lost for me in gas and time. waiting for bids to come back i know i have some but need more homeowners this year. i was doing this part time last year and i think i will be full time this year, i just dont know yet. good luck this year.

Yeah good luck to you. I am debating to reign things in as well. Right now I got customers in Va Beach, Norfolk, Yorktown, Hampton, Suffolk, and Smithfield. Is that crazy or what? Spend a lot on gas, but trying to look long term. . Who knows if I can get 10 customers out in Va Beach then that is a route. If you know what I mean. Picked up some customers in Gov Point so trying to hit the Richer neighborhoods. You should try to hit that big rich section off of Pitchkettle, talking about money!!
