About the Company
The first Route 40 Candle was poured in the home of founder and CEO Jeremy Kean. His goal was to develop a high-quality product that sports teams and organizations could easily sell to raise funds. Knowing that soy candles are longer-lasting, renewable and healthier for people and the environment, Kean began developing scented candles from soy rather than paraffin.
Due to popular demand, the candle and melt business was able to grow into a manufacturing facility in the company’s hometown of Centerville, Indiana. However, increased success led the company to a new facility and retail location in Richmond, Indiana. Route 40 Candle Company is proud to offer high-quality, deliciously-scented soy candles and melts for fundraisers and retail.
