Country Gourmet Home has been in the industry since 2005 but it wasn’t until 2010, under the leadership of Shane and Amy that the company really prospered. In 2006, Shane started his own home-based business selling home décor and wax melts. His wife Amy Beth is a member of the United States Air Force and had to leave the country at the time. Shane wanted to be able to work at home so he can take care of their two children while Amy was out of the country. They were able to expand their home-based business in 2008 to include gourmet food mixes. With Shane’s own homemade wax and Amy’s experience in the direct sales industry, the couple was able to take their small home-based business to the next level. In 2010, Shane and Amy took over ownership of Country Gourmet Home, an existing direct sales company, and took advantage of the opportunity by distributing their gourmet food collection and wax melts using a direct sales framework. From the very beginning, the company was dedicated in providing easy-to-prepare gourmet food mixes that are preservative-free and are made of 100% natural ingredients. What sets Country Gourmet home apart from other companies in the industry aside from their superior product line is their dedication in providing the highest-quality customer care. They offer personal coaching and advice to every consultant in their company to allow them to prosper and achieve individual success while being part of the Country Gourmet Home direct sales family.
