Gold Canyon Candle, the multimillion-dollar company that began 10 years ago in a kitchen, is doubling its Chandler manufacturing site and has expanded its sales force into Canada in Toronto and Calgary.
“People received our candles as gifts up there and wondered where they could get them,” said Curt Waisath, Gold Canyon chief executive officer.
Gold Canyon is adding 100,000 square feet to its building on 20 acres at Arizona Avenue and Riggs Road. The addition will double the current production and warehouse space. Construction is expected to be finished in April 2008.
