Do you order from Schwan's??

  1. I was wondering if your Schwan's man arrived around the same time every other week.

    When I was introduced to Schwan's the man made it sound like they'd arrive in a 3-4 hour block. I could pick the time of day...and they'd be there sometime within that block.

    It hasn't work that way. They come all different times. Lately even days. (last time not at all) And sometimes I need to call and remind them. (which is usual)

    The one time they said they're short a couple driver's. I thought that's okay...totally understandable. But after weeks and weeks it's not getting better.

    I thought I'd talk to someone at Schwan's...see if we can work a specific time they'd arrive. (even if it was definately morning or afternoon. The Schwan's lady said the local manager will call in you tomorrow. That was weeks ago.

    I decided last week I'd E-mail one final time see if I could get a response. -- I was even going to agree to getting an order once a month. (reduce getting delivery's....just as long as they'd arrive EITHER morning or night and for sure)

    I was just wondering how reliable your Schwan's man is? Or if I'm expecting too much from him?

    Our Schwan man come every other Friday night. Usually about 8:30 or so. There for a while he would miss a day, but lately he has been more regular. We have the same driver.

    I would try and call the company again! Maybe you need to be more demanding! It seems like nowadays, you have to really growl to get results!

    Do they just stop by...or do you put in a pre-existing order??

    I always put in an order via the Internet...but thought maybe if they just periodically come without an order I'll stick that way.

    I've spent days at home because it doesn't come one day...I'll call they say it'll come a different day and never shows.

    It sounds like you don't have a regular driver. I have pre-ordered at times, like right before Lent. That way I get the fish I want! Or at Thanksgiving, so I will get the pumpkin pie. It's much better than I would make!
    I have ordered on-line, but not very often. I don't seem to remember to do it in time for him to come! The food is really good and it helps out!

    We had a schwan's guy that was awesome. But due to some changes Schwan's made after 9/11 he quit. That was dec '01. We have not had a regular driver since. I finally stayed on them. A guy came last week. They have the best stuffed sole and cheese and herb bisquits like Red Lobster. I think you have to become established with the new driver before you get reliable service. Hard to do that though when you never know when they are coming.

    Ours is very reliable ! Comes every other week same day, same time, very nice, friendly and polite. If we are not home, he will leave our order in our freezer in the garage.

    He's great.

    Good Luck.. all the guys we've had through the years have been wonderful.

    We used to but they would never try to work with me on a time and a day and then they would come and not come but for some reason our route was difficult to keep a driver on. I enjoyed their food and ice creams it always was such a help to have some pre made stuff on hand.
