Kringle Candle Company Grand Opening


This weekend marked the grand opening of the Franklin County Kringle Candle Company store. According to WWLP, Mike said about creating Kringle Candle Company, “My dad started when he was sixteen years old in his basement, and this company started when I was 17 years old in my basement.”

What Does the Kringle Candle Company Sell?


The Kringle Candle Company opened its doors on Saturday at 10:30 AM with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The store is located up the road from Yankee Candle in Deerfield. MassLive reports Mike Kittredge said during the opening, “This is a turning point for all of us. You have been working long hours, both day and night…But now, just look out there.”


Expectant shoppers gathered to peruse candles, gifts and holiday items in the Kringle Shop with a Christmas theme. Kringle Candle Company products are a 36-fragrance line with irresistible scents such as gingerbread, peppermint twist and Nantucket rose.


Candles are crafted in a production space at the facility. A full line of candles by Kringle Candle Company includes pillars, tea lights, apothecary jars, votives, kitchen candles, floating candles and fire starters.


Kringle Candle Company and Building a Legacy


The Kringle Candle Company is an example of creating your own legacy. Children who are fortunate enough to grow up around a thriving business can learn skills to build their own empire. Rather than jumping on board his father’s business, Mike Kittredge decided to build his own company. Using the knowledge he gained from experience with the Yankee Candle Company, Kittredge made his own dream a reality by creating the Kringle Candle Company.


With the holiday season around the corner, the timely opening of Kringle Candle Company is sure to be a success. If they offer the same quality and service as Yankee Candle Company, Kringle Candle Company will enjoy its own moment in the sun.
