$1 million milestone: Kathy Hendricks excels for Pampered Chef

When Kathy Hendricks started her Pampered Chef business, she never expected to hit the million-dollar sales mark over the course of her 20-year career.

For her efforts, the lifelong Stayton resident was recently recognized by the company with the “One Million Dollar Sales Award.”

“I reached the $1 million in September and got some beautiful flowers from the company,” Hendricks said. “It felt good to be the first person in our area to reach it.”

In addition to receiving flowers last September, Hendricks will be presented with a Bulova watch for her achievement when she attends the company’s national conference mid-July in Illinois.

Hendricks began selling Pampered Chef while holding another job and raising three children aged 3 and under, including 7-month-old twins.

“I decided to give it a try and see what happened,” she said. “I thought I would just do it until bookings ran out. I left my other job two years into my Pampered Chef business after I had replaced my income.”

Hendricks loves her job.

“I love helping my hosts get free and discounted products into their kitchen to make meal time easier,” she said. “One of my favorite parts of my job is the free trips we can earn every year. Because of Pampered Chef, we have traveled to places like the Caribbean, Ireland and Paris.”

Hendricks plans to continue to help others achieve the income they want to earn from a business.

“Plus, of course, I love helping my hosts and having fun with the guests at parties,” she said. “I’m so impressed that this company gives us the tools to succeed. We just need to put those tools into practice.”

Headquartered in Addison, Ill., Pampered Chef, Ltd., is a global multi-level marketing company that offers a line of kitchen tools, food products, and cookbooks for preparing food in the home. The company also offers some products to help transport some of their products and gardening tools. Pampered Chef has a worldwide direct sales force of about 50,000 in addition to 500 corporate staff. The company operates in the United States, Germany and Canada.
