    Re: Pamper a business

    My recruiter does a twist on this... she makes a dessert, usually warm chewy brownies in the square baker, then just shows up Monday morning at a business with dessert in hand, a few catalogs, a certificate that's says "You're the Pampered Chef 'Business of the week' and says I'll be back friday to pick up any orders and my pan.

    seems to be working for her, I'm going to try it as soon as my pan arrives. (the ones I have aren't pc. :(

    one note, she's in a town of 1000

    That would never work here. The population in my zip code alone is over 12,000. When you live in a larger suburban area, people tend to mistrust strangers. I could just see me walking unannounced into a business with a homemade dessert. I'm sure I wouldn't even get to my car before the food was thrown out. :(
     
  5. Agree! Pampering a business in a large city is more difficult. BUT it can be done. Try your friends offices, and the places you frequent, like your dentist, salon, gym, daycare, etc.

    Don't go in un-announced. Stop by first with info/catalogs, and ask if you can bring them a treat sometime this week. Then explain you're with PC, trying out new recipes, etc. Usually this brings some interest. And ask if you could leave some catalogs... Let them know that if anyone wants to place an order, you can pick those up when you bring the food...

  7. I normally put in the the envelope the letter, and Host and Guest specials flyers. Also if I have any special offers like 10% off. I will put that flyer in.

  8. Hi everyone,

    I just started Pampering a business once a week trying to get my name out there. Here is what I have been doing....My first business Pampered was my old part time job. I make a Spice cake with Apple Pie filling made in the fluted pan. I then took that cake with couple of catalogs and order forms up to them. I explained what I was doing and how I made the Cake. I then told them I would be back next week to pick up what ever orders they had for me. Well I went back last week to see how they were doing and to bring them the Lively Lemon Bars Just to say Thanks for helping me out. They had about 3 orders and they told me that they are doing something with Breast cancer and was wondering if I would have stuff to donate to there baskets. Well, I have given them some products and on top it they are including Pampered Chef Catalogs in the baskets and in the Goodie bags they are doing for the customers. I am also going to be there that day when they have a breakfest to kick the event off. I have also pampered a school and a vets office. I will be bring my catalogs with me to my doctors office even thought they say no solicting but i figure if I have the catalog and they see it, its not soliciting.:chef:
    Hope everyone has a great day.

    Liz

  10. Here is the recipe I also got it out of the ALL the best Cookbook but they use pumpkin instead.

    3 Eggs
    1 box of spice cake mix
    1 can of Apple pie filling

    Oil your fluted pan very well the more you oil the better it comes out in the end. Mix 3 eggs and the apple pie filling in your batter bowl. Then Add your cake mix. Mix as well as you can. Pour mixture into the fluted pan evenly. Smooth it out. Put in microwave for 14 min. After 14 min use a cake tester and test the middle closes to the center of the pan. Let it stand in microwave for 10 min. I then put a cake board on the bottom of the cake so when I flip it over it is setting on the board. I let it set for a good while then right before I deliver it I sprinkle it with Powered Suger.


    I also have done it with Choc. Cake cherry pie filling
