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 our customers' 'passion for fragrance' in every product we bring to market. Today, with over 150 fragrances, we offer the world's largest and most compelling selection of candle and home fragrance scents. In addition to our renowned Housewarmer line of scented candles, we also provide a wide range of seasonal and specialty scented candles, home fragrance products, car fresheners and candle accessories. Along with the regular introduction of new Yankee Candle® products and fragrances, we've also grown by adding other brands to our portfolio, including Aroma Naturals® brand of pure, natural aromatherapy candles and related products and Illuminations, which designs and markets premium scented candles, candle accessories, and other home decor products. The majority of our candles are made by master chandlers (candlemakers) in our advanced manufacturing facilities in Massachusetts. We sell our candles and other products through a growing nationwide base of over 450 company-owned retail stores (423 Yankee Candle stores and 27 Illuminations stores). We also have a vibrant and growing catalog and online business, an expanding North American wholesale customer network (including approximately 17, 500 specialty retailers in the U.S.), our Yankee Candle Fund-Raising division, and international distribution. Today, the future looks bright for new growth and expanding opportunities as we continue to write new chapters in this true American success story.
