Yankee Candle Company Information
Christmas 1969, 16 year old Mike Kittredge is too broke to buy his mother a Christmas present that he decides to melt down some crayons to make her a candle. When finished a neighbour see's the home made gift and convinces him to let him buy it. With small amount of funds he now goes and buys enough crayons to make two candles, one a present for his mother, the other to sell. This was the birth of Yankee Candle.
From that single candle, Yankee Candles has grown to encompass more than 300 Yankee Candle retail stores, a worldwide network with approximately 15,000 store locations, direct mail catalogues, an e-commerce site and international distributors. We stocks thousands of Yankee Candle candles available for same day dispatch!
From its growing base of retail stores and Yankee Candle retailers to its ever expanding candle lines, candle accessories and home fragrance products, Yankee Candles has come a long way since its humble beginnings and continues to look towards the future.
