Kendal Brown launched 228 Grant Street Candle Co. out of his kitchen in March 2016. Brown was always in search of the best-scented candles. One day while putzing through a home décor store, Brown stumbled across the perfect specimen. It had a delicate fragrance and was in a simple, beautiful jar. In that instant, he had an undeniable moment of inspiration. He knew he could make luxury scented candles like this one. He went home and watched every candle-making video he could find. He experimented
with the different waxes and fragrances for about four months. Then he purchased a bunch of candle supplies. Brown passed the candles along to friends and family for months and received positive feedback. He designed the logo, the website, and the packaging, and then finalized the six fragrance profiles currently in the line. Word spread, and when he started receiving orders from people he didn't even know, he knew he was onto something. These candles make the perfect gifts, or treats for some self care.
