I am wondering what typical margins/commission % are for a Bimbo bread delivery route. Texas, if that makes a difference. Many thanks.

As long as you work hard and do not loaf around, you will have a good payroll! Sounds like you really knead the dough!

Seriously though, I knew a guy who worked for Martin's bread (I believe) and he did really well. Not sure of the margins, but he was living pretty large!

I knew two people that had bread routes for Pepperidge Farm. They did very well for themselves. Upper middle class for sure.

As is Pepperidge Farm. Bimbo is pretty blue-collar.

Unless there's someone who's actually had such a route, in the OP's general region, there are too many variables to give a useful answer.
  • Truck costs, including ownership, maintenance and fuel.
  • Pricing structure for the region - bakery to wholesaler/jobber to stores.
  • Hours required to maintain route (and keep stores happy).
...as a start.
