About the Hanna's and Candlemart.com Team
A long time ago in 1987, when Burt Hanna was a poor college student trying to make ends meet, he started making potpourri in the basement of his house. He started selling the potpourri and had great success. So much success that he was able to move out of his basement factory into a real factory. He entered the home fragrance industry as a young entrepreneur, tried making just about everything that had fragrance, and found a niche in the emerging scented candle market.
Today Hanna's Candle Company makes tons of candles. We use 20 million pounds of wax a year (10,000 tons), which would make 3.2 billion birthday candles; which would circle the earth 6 times. We make beautiful, wonderfully scented candles and home fragrance products that are affordable and relevant to today's home decor colors and design.
Here at the manufacturing plant, you will regularly find Burt in the lab up to his elbows creating and testing new products to introduce to you, out valued customer. Each season brings new events to celebrate with family and friends; and candles help create the perfect atmosphere! Our memories of the fragrances, colors and sounds of our loves are the gifts that we cherish and visit often, focusing on what matters most.
Burt has been a member of the National Candle Association since 1994 and in 2011 was presented with the National Candle Association Hall of Fame Award for Special Achievement. His hard work, respect for his employees, and commitment to protect the interest of the domestic candle industry in the U.S. is why Hanna's is still here after all these years. Hanna's Candle Company is proud to bring you an array of home fragrance products that you will enjoy and share.
