Our Story

Simple. Natural. Yours.

Our journey began in October of 2013 with one man and a box of wax. With a bit of time, hard work, and a dedicated team Kalamazoo Candle Company has expanded across the country to over 400 wholesale partners, launched its own retail store in Downtown Kalamazoo, and established a production factory for its growth for years to come. 

It's because of you, our customers, that we have been fortunate to have grown so much over the years. As we grow, our values and dedication to our craft will always guide us. We look forward to bringing you the candles you love for many years to come.

Our Values


Our dedication to quality is how we keep producing the candles that you love. Our hands-on process ensures that every single candle not only looks and smells great, but also burns cleanly and for as long as possible.

We are always looking for ways we can celebrate and uplift the community that we call home. We proudly support non-profit organizations with donations and our generous fundraising program. If your organization or school is having a silent auction or would like to schedule a fundraiser please contact us!

We care a great deal about the impact we have on the environment. We work to develop sustainable practices in both our candles and how they're shipped. We constantly find new ways to reduce waste and eliminate single-use plastic, and encourage repurpose your used jars and tins! 

We also have a Wood Lid Return Program where we can reuse the wood lids from our jars.
