Mississippi MLM Not Singing “The Blues”

I grew up in a small town in Mississippi. My parents are originally from the Delta of Mississippi. Home of the “blues”, with dirt roads, cotton fields, and living and working on the river.

There are many images in my mind when I think of the Mississippi Delta.

And while “good food” is definitely one of the things that comes to mind, I certainly would not have imagined a Multi-level Marketing company located in Indianola, Mississippi; who makes it their business to sell good food and “Suppers Made Simple.”

Welcome to Taste of Gourmet.

file-gumboStarting in 1996, with roots dating back to 1972, CEO Jennifer Roughton Schaumburg, carries on the tradition of serving good food that her momma learned the tried and true way of making mistakes and learning from them.

Not only does Taste of Gourmet sell food through catalogs, online and freshly prepared at the family restaraunt, but they also enlist the aid of consultants through an MLM party plan to carry the taste of the delta nationwide.

The compensation plan offers, retail profit, bonuses, additional products, and reward merchandise through their own “partnership” with another Mississippi company, Viking Range.

Consultants can advance to various stages of Director; up to Star Director and are also recognized upon qualifying to be members of the Founder’s Excellence Club.

Taste of Gourmet also contributes monthly to St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital through the sale of the Product Of The Month program.

I have no first-hand knowledge of this company, and I haven’t tried any of their products: but the Mississippi connection intrigued me and I thought I would share the company information with “On The Road” readers.

Taste of Gourmet is a member of the Direct Selling Association.
