Three young brothers launched a candle company two years ago, after their parents told them they weren’t getting a raise in their allowance. Collin, Ryan and Austin Gill created Frères Branchiaux, a candle and fragrance company when their parents inspired them to start their own business.
The brothers, ages 8 through 13, are now selling their products in select Macy’s stores around the U.S.
“We are really thankful that other people have recognized our hard work and like our candles,” the brothers said in a statement to Atlanta Black Star. “Being selected to participate in The Market at Macy’s shows is that we can achieve the highest goals possible even while we are kids.”
Ten percent of the proceeds go to Washington, D.C. homeless shelters. Frères Branchiaux soy candles, room sprays, diffusers, and body products are locally sourced.
