Nationwide - When three brothers, Collin (13), Ryan (10), and Austin Gill (8), sought out to start a business to make them extra money, giving back to their community and drawing in eco-conscious consumers was at top of their minds. Titled Frères Branchiaux, their candle and home fragrance company aims to " savvy, eco-conscious consumers who wants to beautify and enhance their environments with lush and unique fragrances that are non-toxic, organic affordable luxury."

Their products are handmade with organic ingredients and materials to appeal to consumers who care for their environment and their community. With the company’s founders being passionate about both servicing the community and youth entrepreneurship, the thought of entering a market where they are underrepresented presented itself often. Frères Branchiaux is a family-run business that donates 10% of its profits to homeless shelters within the Washington, D.C. community.

As a result of their brand consistency and supportive following, the boys’ candles are on the shelves of 21 stores and boutiques. They were recently selected from a field of thousands of businesses to be sponsored by Facebook and featured in the Market at Macy's. Their candles were featured in the Hillsdale location (San Francisco) until the end of 2018 and are now featured in the Herald Square (NYC) and Ross Park (Pittsburgh) locations until early February 2019. In addition to Macy’s, they have collaborated with retailers such as Ace Hardware and ModCloth for special events and projects.
