Meet Takeila Jeter of A&C Candle Company in Metro

Today we’d like to introduce you to Takeila Jeter.

Takeila, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
A&C Candle Company was started out of compassion for amazing scents & handmade products! We launched officially in January 2019, and have been growing ever since. The name “A&C” is derived from my children’s names Addison & Cameron, who have served as single motivation for starting and upholding the business. We provide handmade candles, soaps & wax tart melts for our consumers through delivery and/or shipment.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It definitely has not been a smooth road. In business, there will be obstacles/challenges that will get in your way unfortunately. Personally, I’ve struggled with adapting to new technology and time management. Since I am a mother and actress amongst being a business owner, it can be strenuous managing all three simultaneously.

A&C Candle Company – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
A&C Candle Company provides handmade soy-based candles, wax tart melts & soaps for consumers through delivery and/or shipment. Our products are available online via our online store as well as in a few business storefronts that we have collaborated within the Carolinas.

We are known for our soy products, amazing scents and our convenient, accessible delivery. Our consumers appreciate our offering of delivery and I believe it is one of our features that makes us unique!

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
So far, the proudest moment of my entrepreneurial career is being able to collaborate with other businesses in The Carolinas and allowing my products to be on their shelves and available to consumers in various areas.
