Victoria Sardo’s passion for high-quality candles has driven her to learn to create AnnaMarri Soy Candles. After lots of trial and error and more than a year of testing various soy waxes, wicks, and fragrance oils, Victoria perfected the right formula and felt comfortable enough to start selling her product. Her dream was to offer environmentally-friendly, high-quality, locally-made candles, and that’s exactly what she’s now doing with AnnaMarri Soy Candles.
“Our products are 100% soy candles made with 100% American-made materials, from jars and wicks to fragrance oils,” Victoria said. “Our soy wax is grown by American farmers. Having something that is local to the area for our customers is special. I am very happy to be a part of that!”
AnnaMarri Soy Candles is family-run, so when a friend suggested the name of the business by combining the names of Victoria’s daughters, Arianna and Marissa, it fit perfectly. “If you happen to notice one of your labels is a little crooked, it was probably put on by my five-year-old Marissa”
Victoria stands behind her product 100% and offers a no-questions-asked exchange. She has also implemented a recycle program, where a customer can bring any five empty AnnaMarri jars and lids back to receive a small candle. The jars and lids are then reused.
“We have wonderful customers who tell us they love our candles and melts better than others they have tried,” Victoria said. “The best compliment we get is seeing our customers return.”
