Pampered Chef? What do they do…?
A business specifically geared towards kitchenware started in 1980 by a women named Doris Christopher. Pampered Chef is now a multimillion dollar corporation that spans the United States, Canada, Germany and the United Kingdom and have since been able to attract famous billionaire Warren Buffet who is considered one of the most successful business men in history and is the primary shareholder and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, being crowned the richest man of 2009 until his massive donation to charity giving away billions ranking him the second richest man in he world behind Bill Gates with a Net Worth of $ 40 billion.
In 2002 the PamperedChef biz was sold and handed ownership to Berkshire Hathaway due to its incapability to keep pace with the changing standards of the industry. To this day Pampered Chef has since been able to keep itself up and has been on the rise.
What about their product?
When wanting to join the Pampered Chef Opportunity there is one aspect that has to be taken into consideration, as it relies on the things you are passionate about and love to do. I’ll explain why further down in the review.
Pampered Chef Sell a range of Kitchenware products ranging from a vast set of knifes to different array of peelers, everything to make your cooking experience that much better, easier and enjoyable.
Since the addition of Berkshire Hathaway, Pampered Chef has now extended its product range to home cooking recipes, special gift sets and gift certificates.
How does their business opportunity work and can they be trusted?
The Pampered Chef opportunity is most certainly legit and very unique in its own way, as the compensation plan is far different to any of the usual multi-level marketing compensation plans that most multi-level marketing companies have.
Unlike the majority of MLM companies of today’s age, it is still mandatory that you hold house parties with Pampered Chef, as it’s the only way to make money with them. So taking you back to what I said above, about the importance of the product and whether you have passion for that sort of pastime, because you’re required to host house parties in order to sell or recruit people into your business, I would suggest or it helps to at the very least have some form of passion of enjoyment towards cooking, as you are required to show off the functionality and versatility of the product via cooking.
As a Pampered Chef rep, you are invited by a hostess to act as ‘chef’, showing off the products versatility and functionality by cooking recipes provided by the hostess. Once cooking is finished, the guests have a chance to try a taster in which time the ‘chef’ has a chance to collect orders, book parties and answer questions.
After sales are made at a party, you make a percentage of profit made plus sales made in future by prospects recruited into your business opportunity.
As part of becoming a rep for Pampered Chef, a fixed price for Consultant kits are given such as the beginner Consultant kit priced at $ 65 with a value of $ 200 and the more advance Consultant kit priced at $ 155 with a value of $ 570. These kits provide high-quality and multifunctional products, catalogs, training materials, business management software, professional business supplies to market your business, and a tote to easily carry products and catalogs to and from Shows, to give you the best possible edge of succeeding.
Do you recommend I join the PamperedChef biz?
This depends solely on you and whether you’re passionate about cooking and feel the products Pampered Chef provides are of a good standard. The downside is you’ll have to lug around all your cooking tools and recipes to parties and the higher you move up in your company the less money you make from people you recruit under you.
So the best way to make money is to sell, sell and sell!
If you’re looking to make an income from building your business downline and advancing in the company then Pampered Chef is not the opportunity for you. On the other hand, if you like to make an income from direct selling, and through increase of commissions payed by recruiting people and producing large sales on a monthly basis then it might just be what you’re looking for.
