Veterans Candle Company

This business is focused and commited to US Veterans including disabled, homeless, families and active duty personnel.
I am a US Navy Veteran and in my time of need the VA was there for me and now I want to give back as best as any Veteran with a strong conviction can do.
 
I used to own a scented candle manufacturing/retail/fundraisin company for 10 years with all intentions to sell the company for profit witch I did.  Country Scents Candle Comany in Ellington. CT.  It grew from 1300 square feet to 15,000 square feet in 10 years with seven retail outlets.  It grossed over 6 million in those 10 years.
 
Combined with my knowledge and previous experience, I already know what it is going to take realistically to get my equipment, space, supplies etc.
 
Here is how it is going to work, 20% of all profits go to several veteran assistance programs, although contributions from the comany directly to Veterans will be made to advertise and promote the company to ensure growth and awareness.
 
The comany will also commit to filling jobs with Veterans first.
 
This candle company, once founded will be called, USA Candle Company.  Other ideas for the name is welcome as we are in this together.
 
Myself, being the founder is so greatful for donation of any size is very much appreciated and your money WILL be used very efficiently due to my previous experience.  When all said and done, it is the Veteran and Active Duty personnel are ultimately what myself and the company stand for and greatful for.
 
God Bless our Troops,
