Wash and Wik- Gary and Ariel Bruckner
I got to spend a lunch break with Gary and Ariel Bruckner, the owners of Wash and Wik- a Soap & Candle Company- Hand Poured & Hand Labeled in Orlando, FL. They also provide wholesale and private labeling for many businesses.
I chatted with Gary and Ariel about how they decided to start after reading an article about soap and candle making and now are making and distributing over 40,000 candles a year.
Gary and Ariel chatted with me about how they run the business and how they are the 2 employees of the business. We discussed their goal of being Orlando's Candle Company. We also spoke about how they balance Gary's corporate job along with Ariel working on Wash and Wik full time and also being parents to 2 young boys, as well as, Gary pouring candles and working on Wash and Wik after work in the evenings.
