How many of us remember as kids creating our own candles from our broken crayons? We?d have mom or dad help us melt down the crayons on the stove, throwing in every color of the rainbow. Then we?d carefully pour the melted wax into old cardboard milk cartons. But, how many of us were able to turn the fun of creating candles at home into a profitable money-making business? Well, Mike Kittredge, founder of Yankee Candles did just that! In 1969, when he was 16 years old, Mike melted down his old crayons to make his mom a candle for Christmas. His neighbor liked it so well, that she bought it from him. He then had enough money to buy wax to make both a candle for his mom and one to sell. This was the beginning of a bright future for Yankee Candles.
Today, Yankee Candles are the #1 selling brand in the United States. The ?Housewarmers? are Yankee Candles most popular candle. They vary in size from votives at 3.7 oz. to 14.5 oz. and 22 oz. candles in jars with a lid. These Yankee Candles burn anywhere from 25-150 hours-depending on the size of candle.
