Scentsy Wins First Rising Star Award
Honor Recognizes Scentsy’s Commitment to Simplicity, Quality and Value
MERIDIAN, Idaho--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Direct Selling Association (DSA – dsa.org) recently presented its 2009 annual industry awards for outstanding achievement and honored Scentsy Inc. with the first ever Rising Star Award at the DSA Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. The Rising Star Award is presented annually to one up-and-coming direct selling company that has dedicated itself to achieving a high standard of excellence in business operations.
“But our success is merely a byproduct of passionate customers and consultants, and an outstanding corporate team, who have shown great enthusiasm for our products and parties.”
Scentsy opened its doors in 2004 with the idea of offering a safe, wickless alternative to burning candles in homes and offices. Scentsy experienced record growth as customers saw its decorative warmers as not just a safer alternative but as a better alternative. Scentsy’s success can be attributed to a simple and valuable product line sold through independent consultants at home parties.
“We always strive at Scentsy to bring value to customers by creating and selling high-quality products that warm the heart, enliven the senses, and inspire the soul,” said Orville Thompson, Scentsy CEO and co-owner. “We are honored that the DSA awards committee has recognized our singular focus on quality and value in the midst of tremendous growth.”
“This award further validates the success we have experienced,” said Heidi Thompson, Executive Vice President and co-owner. “But our success is merely a byproduct of passionate customers and consultants, and an outstanding corporate team, who have shown great enthusiasm for our products and parties.”
Each year the Direct Selling Association gathers for its annual meeting and hosts its annual Awards Banquet. The DSA presented awards in the areas of technology innovation, partnership, sales force development and program excellence. The five companies honored during the association’s annual meeting were ACN Inc., Mary Kay Inc., Oxyfresh.com, Scentsy Inc. and ServiceQuest. Oxyfresh.com, ServiceQuest and Scentsy are all based in Idaho.
Scentsy Inc. is a rapidly growing party plan company offering a variety of scented, wickless candles heated in decorative ceramic warmers, and other fragrance products. What began in 2004 in a 40-foot ocean container on a small Idaho sheep farm is now a national company growing 300 percent annually with more than 35,000 independent consultants in the United States, Puerto Rico and Guam.
