What they do:
Make candles with candle scents for men.
Why do candles all have such “girly smells,” 14-year-old Hart Main asked his younger sister, who was selling the candles for a school fundraiser. Main thought why not have smells that guys would like, like fresh cut grass, bacon, sawdust and leather.
About the business:
In 2010, with an investment of his own $100, he poured man- pleasing scented candle wax into empty soup cans and Man Cans was born. Main peddled his product to local and national stores and set up mancan.com. In less than a year, he sold 9000 candles.
