My Company

I started my company in November of 2010 when I was 13 based on a unique idea that came to me when my sister was selling candles for a school fundraiser.  The thought “Why don’t people sell candles with scents that men like?”   I took this idea and ran with it.  Little did I know that an idea of selling man scented candles would lead to an opportunity to feed so many people.

The can was my choice for a container because I didn’t want a manly scented candle in a glass jar, just like everyone else was doing.   Many changes have happened in my company even during the first year.  The website has changed twice, the options for payment has changed, the label has changed, but the quality of my product has stayed the same.

In the future I hope to continue to find new ways to provide food to people who need it and expand the number of kitchens that I currently assist.  I also plan on providing unique scents to customers and to sell through locally owned stores.

From year one to year two ManCans expanded our kitchens from 7 in Ohio to 25 in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.  We have also found a way to help kitchens financially with the start of SheCans and help keep MRDD clients working with the partnership between ManCans and Beaver Creek Candle Co. and ManCans is exanding the number of locally owned stores that carry our candles each week.  We are approaching year 6 and have donated over 300,000 meals and are working to continue to grow so we can provide more assistance that we ever thought possible.
