Sales reps will receive a 1099-Miscellaneous showing your commission earned for the previous year IF you had $5000 in total sales and received more than $600 in commissions. This form will be sent before the end of January each year.

Find your 2022 total sales by clicking the Annual Sales Report Icon.

As a sales rep for Alison’s Pantry, you are considered self-employed and are responsible for paying your self-employment taxes each year by filing a Schedule C for your AP business.

**Alison’s Pantry is not a tax consultant. As with any financial advice, please consult your tax advisor or accountant for the most current and up-to-date information.**

Keeping accurate records is a must for your business.


Here are some expenses that you may be able to deduct from your taxes:

  • Telephone / cell phone costs
  • Internet Services
  • Mailing cost of catalog
  • Office Supplies (paper, ink cartridges, staples, paper clips, tape, etc.)
  • Food Samples
  • Computer and software supplies
  • Freezers used to store Alison’s Pantry products
  • Mileage for meeting truck for delivery, delivering catalogs and products to customers, picking up supplies, etc. Download the Mileage Log here.
  • Gifts and prizes given to customers for referrals, contest prizes, customer appreciation, etc.
  • Restaurant meals and entertainment (if business is discussed) are 50% deductible.
  • According to Bernard B. Kamoroff, CPA, in his book 422 Tax Deductions for Business and the Self-Employed Individual, he states that it is perfectly legal to add your school-age children to your payroll, hiring them to do real jobs and paying them up to $6,300.00 per year (this may have changed, so check with your tax advisor). You can write off their wages as a business expense; they keep the funds earned and do not have to file a tax return.

Webinar Help

The first part of this webinar is an interview with a tax consultant where he goes over some ideas on how to get the most out of your AP business and taxes.

Starting 2nd qtr 2022 – April 1st.*

*In order for reps to participate in any of these bonuses the rep needs to schedule a meeting with their sales manager once each quarter (no longer monthly).

Sales reps will be able to earn bonuses each quarter for the following: 



Reps earn $600 credit for each sales rep they refer. This has to be a net gain for Alison’s Pantry; not taking over for another sales rep, to get full credit. If referring a replacement rep it would be a $200 credit. New rep must hit minimum for 3 months. $400 credit for the first month then $100 credit for 2 additional months. No limit for referrals.


Where are Representatives needed?
Probably in your hometown.

See Our Full List of Cities for Referral Opportunities >> 

We’d love to find Reps in:

Brigham City
Park City


Idaho Falls
Sugar City
Soda Springs

Great Falls

Green River
Rock Springs


Grand Junction
Denver and surrounding area


North Dakota

New Underwood


Receive a $10 credit for referring new customers to your fellow reps. Know someone who would love AP, but they are out of your area? Refer them to a closer rep and get paid for it! Customer needs to place a $50 min order. To get this credit the referring rep needs to send their RSM the new customer ID and name. This could also be an existing customer who hasn’t ordered in 6+ months. Once the customer has placed a minimum $50 order and paid for it, the rep would receive a $10 credit. Only one credit per customer; multiple reps cannot refer the same customer.



Reps will be credited $1 for submitting a review on the Alison’s Pantry website. If you send in a picture AND review a product we’ll give you a $5 credit. If you submit a 30 second video review we’ll give you a $10 credit. (video must be at least 15 seconds, but not more than 60 seconds and should be filmed vertically with plenty of light and should show the actual product during your review.)


Rep will receive a free marketing kit ($60 value) for participating in an approved vendor show or hosting a tasting party. The way it works is you purchase the kit for $50 and once you submit your results we’ll credit the $50 back. No limit on number of events.


Samples are a great way to increase sales; we’ll even help you with it! Sample something you’re excited about then document how it went with photos and/or video and post it on the rep FB group to get a $5 credit. This can be done once a catalog.


Host a Facebook Live or Instagram Reel with an AP theme and receive a $5 credit. This can be done once per catalog. Please share your live or reel in our rep fb group and tag Lori Harris.


The 5% Sales Increase Bonus will be discontinued after September, 2022

Sales reps can earn a bonus commission of 5% on the increase of sales from the same quarter previous year sales. Bonus will be issued as AP credit.

Example: If a rep has sales of $1,000 more than the previous year she would get a bonus of $50 for the quarter. 

*A sales rep will not receive the 5% quarterly increase bonus if they have a below-minimum order in the quarter for the current year or previous year being compared.

2022 Food Show Cancelled

[slide-anything id=”13953″]

January 11th, 2022

Dear AP Reps-

I have a difficult announcement to make. Let me first start off by saying that it honestly feels like sometimes the universe just doesn’t want to align with what we want.

I’m sorry to announce that we are canceling our food show…….again. The reason we’ve decided to cancel it for the 3rd time is because the facility we reserved made a huge mistake and double-booked another event for the same day. They absolutely cannot move the event, so we got bumped. I was on a conference call with them over the weekend and they are incredibly sorry for the scheduling mistake. Between us requesting multiple days and rescheduling it twice they simply got it mixed up and reserved the wrong date. They apologized profusely! I told them that I appreciated their honesty and there was no reason to scream and throw a tantrum (even though I felt like doing exactly that!) The second reason for cancellation is a familiar one: COVID. I don’t know how things are looking in your neck of the woods, but here in Utah we’re to almost 10,000 cases PER DAY! New mask mandates are being issued and we’re not sure how our brokers and vendors will react to news of all time high COVID cases.

After many hours of deliberation, we decided that instead of potentially having the worst attended food show in history that we needed to cancel it indefinitely. The good news is, Jesse and I have decided that we will be putting the money we would have spent on the food show into more rep appreciation and retention programs. (More on that to be announced.)

I just wanted to let you know how sorry we are for making yet another change with this food show. It has been more difficult to put together than any other show in our 35-year history. Kim has been an absolute super star rolling with the punches and enduring all the changes that have been forced upon us with this huge undertaking.

If you have any questions regarding the food show please don’t hesitate to email me directly [email protected] and I’ll do my best to answer them as quickly as I can.

Thank you for your support, and even though we are unable to host a food show, I am STILL a firm believer that every problem is just an opportunity in disguise.

“Makes it all real!”

“As a new rep, I was really excited to meet people and to hear what some other people were doing. My business is very much part-time (really small) so I don’t expect to win any awards but it’s great to see other people rewarded for their work. And I loved seeing the staff people who make the website, the catalogs and all these huge deliveries happen every month. Makes it all real.”

Christi Herrick, Kit Carson, CO

“I love it and won’t be missing it!”

“I loved getting to meet all the other reps. I’m not gonna fib….. The prizes were pretty darn amazing too! Being in close proximity to the owners is so cool. Not every company gives you the opportunity to meet the top dogs. I love it and won’t be missing it!”

Haley Notter, Stratton, CO

“You won’t want to miss it!”

“I love food, so I love the food show! Where else can you try all the items in the catalog that you haven’t tried before? The rep night before is the icing on the cake. You can meet all the other reps and put names to faces. YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS IT!!”
