Our Story: FCI was inspired by our family’s white elephant Christmas party in 2007. One of our family members received two soy candles from another member and it caused quite a commotion in the family. In the end only the one family member walked away with a fun and unique gift. This event spurred continued conversation that ultimately led to the launch of Family Candles Inc. We decided after researching soy candles and learning about the advantages, that it would be a fun family project since we all had an interest. Before long we had a family meeting to decide each person’s role. Steve had some previous experience making soy candles. So it seemed logical to put Steve in charge of production. Sue with her creative mind and organized skills quickly received the title of Research and Development director as well as secretary of the company. Shirley with her extensive accounting background naturally became our Account manager. Finally, Tammy also with a creative flair was assigned to graphic and marketing design. Even though we all have our individual roles we also work together as a great team pitching in to make candles in our production department.
It is our dream that we all walk together in the LIGHT!
