About

We have been making candles and wax melts for about three years now. We have just formed an LLC and are looking to really get heavy into the organic beeswax and natural / essential oil fragrance market, as there is little competition in this specific niche. Our immediate goal is to open a storefront in Suffolk, VA. We plan to open a second location in Chesapeake or Virginia Beach after the first couple years of business. We have created a website to begin making our products available, but need the funding in order to really ramp up the sales. The profit margin on our products is extremely high since we buy everything in bulk quantities. For example, we would only need to sell an average of 10 products a day to be profitable for the month, and we all know most people don't buy just one candle. 

This is our dream, and we would greatly appreciate your support in making it happen!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is informing the public of the harm that comes from constant burning of the cheap paraffin candles found in most stores. Paraffin wax is created from the bottom of crude oil barrels, which is definitely toxic to everyone breathing it in.

Our second largest challenge is financing our operation. We intend on taking the market by storm and need significant funding to purchase large bulk quantities of supplies and to cover the monthly rent of our storefront while we ramp up the business. Building a brand is always challenging, but very rewarding in the end.
