NEWARK, Ohio, May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Your Inspiration At Home president and chief spice curator Colleen Walters cut the ribbon today to open a U.S. office, as a major step in her company's entry into the North American market.
Your Inspiration At Home is an award-winning direct selling company that offers a line of 150 hand-crafted spice blends and gourmet foods made of natural ingredients from around the world. The company was founded in 2011 in Australia and is beginning its strategy of global expansion.

"CVSL is delighted to welcome Colleen and her team to the U.S.," said CVSL chairman John Rochon. "Colleen has created a fantastic line of spice blends and gourmet foods. North American consumers love to cook, for fun and for their families. We're sure they will be absolutely amazed at how great these spice blends are and that they'll want to have them all. With a U.S. launching pad, we believe the sky is the limit for this company. People are already lining up to join."
The Your Inspiration At Home U.S. headquarters is located in CVSL's 180,000 square foot office building just outside Newark, Ohio. Attending today's ribbon-cutting in addition to Ms. Walters were members of the company's sales field leadership as well as members of the Australian staff.
"Today we have planted our flag in the North American market. We are another step closer to accomplishing our strategy of being the world's provider of premier hand-blended spice blends," said Ms. Walters. "Now we have a home here and we're eager to introduce ourselves to every person and every family, to show them how wonderful truly hand-crafted spice blends taste and how they can transform any food."
"Now is the time for people who want to build a business with us to get in on this launch and create something exciting. We just had our best sales and recruiting month ever and we expect very good things in this new market we're entering, based on the large number of people who have already contacted us asking to join our sales force. This is the time when leaders can really make an impact for themselves," added Ms. Walters.
At today's ribbon-cutting was founder Steve Magarry, as well as Sue Arntson, the company's first Founding Leader in the USA.
