Arizona Republic | 10/8/2007

Fragrances from Gold Canyon Candles in southeast Chandler are wafting towards Europe.

The rapidly growing candle maker opened a headquarters branch in Chester, England, and a distribution center in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, this week , to kick off sales there.

"We absolutely look at it as a stepping stone for going into Europe," said Terrie Robinson, chief operating and chief financial officer for Gold Canyon.

This is the direct-sale company's year for going global as it opened a distribution center in Canada earlier this year.

Robinson said the company is entering the European market because surveys show that fragrant candles are very popular there and that Europeans are "very friendly towards direct sales."
