Thanks!

Webstraunt is the future in the “everything but the food” space

Hard to compete with them so that would be my worry

It's hard to compete with the online E&S houses. No salespeople. No commissions. Rock bottom pricing. I lost two Wolf ranges to one of these companies because there was a $1,000 difference.

My buddy works for tundra as a sales rep and is making close to 6 figures including commission. I can’t touch his pricing.

I would think you have less to sell, at least with a broad liner you can sell all the stuff Don sells and food, paper, and chemicals. Equipment depending on the brand, the margins are so low online. The broad liners work mostly on a 10% margin over cost, it’s going to be harder and harder to compete against that. You may just look for a better broad liner you like if your burned out at the blue cube.
