While a sluggish economy continues to make the job market and business growth difficult, beauty company Mary Kay is breaking records reporting a 15% increase in sales in 2011.
“We are coming off a strong year because we’ve seen more women wanting to start a Mary Kay business,” said Yvette Franco, Mary Kay Inc. vice president of U.S. marketing. “Our independent sales force is more diverse, and more women from Gen Y are joining Mary Kay. The fundamental principles of our business are appealing to women of every demographic group. Young people enjoy the fact that this business offers flexibility. The long-standing appeal of our products combined with the increase in sales force members, have resulted in strong sales for Mary Kay.”
