Have you ever heard of Meridian Idaho? There’s a good chance that many haven’t. However, interestingly enough, it’s one of the fastest growing towns (percentagewise) in the US. Part of this could be because a certain player in the wax market moved its headquarters there.
Now you may not have heard of Meridian, ID, but you’ve probably heard of Scentsy candles—the wickless, flameless, scented candles that are in so many homes these days. Perhaps you even know some lady who sells them. They’re like the Avon of candles, after all.
Now, it just so happens that this big company recently moved its headquarters to Meridian, ID. Whether or not this has had a direct effect on the accelerated growth of the small northwestern town is probably debatable. Yet, one thing is certain: it surely has helped add to the growth.
According to a report by StateImpact (a reporting project of National Public Radio—NPR) Scentsy is ranked among the nation’s most promising companies by Forbes and Inc.com. Who knew there was so much money in candles that don’t even have wicks or need a flame? Well, someone did, because the most recent numbers on Scentsy’s website show that there are now more than 200,000 consultants/distributors of the company’s products.
Powerblanket and the Wax Industry
Though candles, especially the type Scentsy produces, are only a small part of the wax industry/market, news such as this helps to illustrate the value related to a respective product. At Powerblanket, we understand the value behind a company’s wax stores. That’s why we take interest in protecting this product and many others from the effects of cold weather.
If you’re going to set up shop in Meridian Idaho, or any other town in the Rocky Mountain West, then freeze protection becomes an important part of your operational procedures. When any material (which is meant to remain at room temperature) freezes, there are almost always unfavorable effects to follow. However, with Powerblanket’s patented technology, you can keep your wax at the proper temperature—regardless of where you store it.
