A Day in the Life of a Fontis Route Salesman

The day starts early for a Fontis Water route salesman.  While most of us are still getting ready for work and children off to school, the Fontis routeman is already loading his truck well before 8 AM.  He reviews his stops, loads his vehicle and double checks for extra supplies before hitting the road to deliver refreshing Fontis Water throughout Metro Atlanta.  Recently I had the opportunity to ride along with route salesman, Steve Lentz.  Steve has been with the company for four years, and as I rode with him it was easy to see he truly enjoys his job.

This particular day Steve was delivering to the Kennesaw and Acworth areas.   We made numerous stops in dowDSC_0112ntown Kennesaw, including City Hall, the police department, the detective agency and the offices of economic development.  Although on a tight schedule, we did make time to walk through The Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History, stopping to pose for a quick picture before we were on our way.  The Museum not only has Fontis Water coolers for its employees, but our private label water bottles can also be found in the gift shop. DSC_0107

Fontis Water is known for its great bottled water, but did you know we also provide water filtration services?  We do and that was another one of our stops DSC_0116in Kennesaw.  Steve explained that in order for the filtration system to work properly, the filters must be changed on a scheduled basis.  The procedure took less than 5 minutes, we were on our way and our customer was thrilled with Steve’s promptness.

As we journeyed through the rest of the city, Steve explained the procedures of delivery and how he has gotten to know his customers.  Staying on time is important, but maintaining a relationship with his customers is even more important to Steve … and it’s a part of the Fontis difference.   We invite you to learn more about Fontis Water and our commercial and residential delivery services.  Sign up today, and who knows you just might have Steve as your route salesman!
