Candle brand Best Kept Secrets is celebrating 25 years of trading.
The company says, "It may have been a 'mid-life crisis', but in 1996 Alan and Denise Edwards decided to leave their corporate careers, to start something new, away from what had been their daily existence for the previous thirty plus years.
"A very small candle business became available. With just a few products but no customers, it presented just the challenge Alan and Denise were looking for."All went well for over twenty years, and the company saw year and year growth. Everything in the garden was rosy. Until in 2018 Alan broke his neck in a freak accident. Denise became his full time nurse but inevitably retirement beckoned for them both. We are pleased to report that Alan has made a full recovery thanks to the wonderful NHS.
"Their daughter Vanessa stepped up and took over the reins. With husband Paul, they have rebranded, introduced new and exciting products and steered the company through what has been one of the most difficult years.
"One thing that doesn't change at Best Kept Secrets is our amazing staff. Team work makes the dream work – they are simply the best!"
