TLCandles on table Our Business Practice Firm class requires us to explore the real business world within a classroom setting.  Our team collaborated on many small business ideas, ultimately deciding on a candle company.  With the holiday season upon us, we decided candles not only make great gifts, but they become increasingly popular as we near the cooler winter months.

Like an “actual” business we have many different roles which include Marketing, Human Resources, Accounting and Production.  Departments meet each week to share their progress and brainstorm any potential issues, and prepare for the week ahead.

Our candles are homemade with soy wax in a variety of fragrances and colors.  Our scents include: Caramel Apple, Cranberry, Pumpkin Spice, and Vanilla.  Our candles are produced in the Moraine Park Technical College kitchen by our Production Team.  Proceeds from each sale will be helping those affected by the 2017 Hurricane Disasters.

TLCandles are available for purchase every Thursday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the cafeteria area and Room A206 through November 30, 2017.  Online orders can be made through our website www.morainepark.edu/tlcandles.
