Yankee Candle

From humble beginnings ...

Christmas 1969. Seventeen-year-old Mike Kittredge, too broke to buy his mother a present, melted some crayons to make her a candle. A neighbor saw it and convinced Mike to sell the candle to her. With that small stake, he bought enough wax to make two candles - one for his mom, and another to sell. That was the birth of Yankee Candle.

To America's favorite brand of premium scented candles ...

Yankee Candle has become the #1 most-recognized name in the candle business and the country's best selling candle brand by sharing the customers' “passion for fragrance” in every product brought to market.

Today, with over 150 fragrances, Yankee offers the world's largest and most compelling selection of candle and home fragrance scents. In addition to the renowned Housewarmer® line of scented candles, it also provides a wide range of seasonal and specialty scented candles, home fragrance products, car fresheners and candle accessories.

The majority of the candles are made by master chandlers (candlemakers) in the advanced manufacturing facilities in Massachusetts. Yankee sells the candles and other products through a growing nationwide base of over 500 company-owned retail stores. Yankee also has a vibrant and growing catalog and online business, an expanding North American wholesale customer network (including approximately 19,100 specialty retailers in the U.S.), the Yankee Candle Fund-Raising division, and international distribution.

Today, the future looks bright for new growth and expanding opportunities as it continues to write new chapters in this true American success story.
