Duluth Candle Company was never supposed to be a company at all.
But then a business plan was assigned in a marketing class and Duluth Candle Company was (accidentally) born. When the professor urged everyone to think of something they liked to do, I laughed to myself and thought “How am I going to sell lounging under a blanket with a book?” But books and blankets were only part of the reason I consider myself a loud and proud homebody. Eventually I realized that my most relaxed times, or really any time at all, a candle was burning and contributing to the mood.
Duluth Candle Company was inspired by my hometown. The authenticity of the fragrances, the simplicity of the product and the welcoming warmth of the complete candle. I now live in Minneapolis and see Duluth Candle Company as a way to take a little bit of Duluth with me wherever I go and for others to do the same.
Thank you for helping to turn a lightbulb moment into a reality and for supporting a small, local business. Isn’t life cool?
