A story of community
about the Northeast Candle Co.
The Northeast Candle Co. began in 2019 in the Northeastern section of Beaver County, Pennsylvania by Mark Miller.
Mark is a teacher, coach, and business leader who champions education with practical job and career skills.
He himself, a life long learner, graduated with degrees in psychology and business management from LaRoche University. Later he went on to complete his education degree at LaRoche. Since then, he completed his post-graduate work at The University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business in Applied Mathematics and Analytics, and recently completed a study in Strategic and Entrepreneurial Luxury Brand Management at Università Bocconi in Milan, Italy.
When he isn't teaching, coaching baseball, or working on business solutions, and being the brand developer at The Northeast Company (The Northeast Candle Co.'s parent company) he studies history and is currently studying the Latin language.
"Hard work, dedication to community, and service to others in all that you do" was something his family instilled him. He found this not only to be his family's culture but also to be part of the natural culture in the area where he grew up and has lived his entire life. "The people here give back in any way they can in with the blessings God has given them. That's what makes this area so special and a great place to call home." says Mark
As a thank you to the area he has called home for over 40 years and the many neighbors, co-workers, and friends he considers family, he decided to name the company The Northeast Candle Company in honor of integrity all of these people hold and display to each other throughout good times and bad.
