On February 20, United States Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) visited The Pampered Chef in Addison, IL. The Congressman received an introduction on the history of Pampered Chef during a tour of Heritage Hall, viewed the test kitchen where employees were testing new products and saw the distribution center which sends products to customers and consultants around the country. Laura Teele, a Pampered Chef independent consultant and constituent also joined the visit and told her story about the importance of being an independent contractor.
Jan Capinegro, Senior Director of Field Events and Support at The Pampered Chef said “It was such an honor to welcome Congressman Krishnamoorthi to Pampered Chef and share the story of how our Founder, Doris Christopher, started Pampered Chef in the basement of her home and transformed it into the amazing business it is today. We were all moved by our consultant Laura Teele’s story—as a young mother, she just wanted to make a car payment with her Pampered Chef earnings, and today she’s able to pay for her son’s college tuition. The Congressman asked such insightful questions – and understands the value of entrepreneurs! I hope he was able to walk away with a better understanding of how important this flexible business model is to our consultants as he considers future legislation that could impact consultants like Laura and so many others.”
