Startup Description

Armadilla Wax Works is Arizona's premier candle company, founded in 1971 and still owner operated today by the founders. The company manufactures high quality, original designed candles in Prescott Valley.
We are looking for an entrepreneur to open a candle store in the Phoenix area with our name and reputation for creativity and exceptional customer service. With 45 years in the candle business, we not only offer hand crafted candles, we also have the retail experience to create a colorful and inviting specialty candle store. You would be encouraged to visit the candle making and retail store in Prescott Valley as well as a licensed store in historic downtown Prescott.

Have you had your eye on a great location that would be perfect for your store?
The neighborhood candle store is intended to have a warm and open feeling with colors, textures and fixtures that can be a combination of new and repurposed vintage to reflect your personality and the location. A candle shop is a fragrant and welcoming place.

Keeping a simple plan begins with the mutual goal to operate a profitable business and sell one of the most unique and consistently popular home décor, special event accents and gift choices – everybody loves candles!

It is our goal to collaboratively create a candle store in an area that you know best, with other compatible retailers and high traffic. Your store may be a "store within a store" or a free standing location. There are many new and exciting opportunities in the valley with the emergence of repurposed warehouse and multi-use buildings. This is not a franchise. This is a dealership opportunity with reasonable guidelines. The use of our name is not only a positive feature because of our longevity in Arizona, it is important that it stays true to its purpose - we are candle makers and retailers. Join us!
