Jump Start Ohio – April 2, 2010

I am excited to blog about today’s Made In Ohio business.  It is one of my favorite stops to visit when I swing into the quaint town of Medina to do a little shopping or visit friends.

Root Candle Factory - Medina Ohio

The Root Candle Factory is an Ohio  family owned company that has been making candles since 1869.  Their founder, Amos Ives Root, who was originally involved in the manufacturing of beekeeping equipment, took his love of beekeeping in a different direction by beginning to roll sheets of beeswax from his hives around wicks to create altar candles for churches.   As Mr. Root’s candle business grew so did the types of candles he began to offer.

To this day, the Medina company has continued to make those same beeswax candles as well as a large variety of other candles to add fragrance and wonderful lighting to anyone’s home. The Root Candle Factory offers a local retail store as well as a factory store which is located just off the square in Medina at 623 West Liberty Street.  Can’t make it down to Medina?  The company also sells online at www.rootcandles.com.
