Based in Baltimore, MD and founded in 2016 by Kendal Brown, 228 Grant Street Candle Co. is a black-owned brand featuring unique and curated deeply aromatic fragrance combinations chosen for every mood and every season. The name 228 Grant Street Candle Co. pays homage to the home of Kendal's late maternal grandparents in Danville, VA; a home characterized by simple acts of hospitality and the sharing of things made and cultivated by the founder's grandparents. Kendal came to candle-making after having been on a winding road of professional life as a minister, seminary admissions director and regional staff member of a denomination. Though all fulfilling roles, there was a deep longing for work that engaged more of his creativity, body and free spirit. The brand is currently carried coast-to-coast by nearly 60 retailers and has been featured on The Today Show, ABC World News Tonight and in The Strategist, Cosmopolitan, Essence and Esquire.
