THE MCCALL’S CANDLE STORY | OZARK BRANDS
“Let’s just make our own candles...”
McCall’s Candles was built on the American dream in the 1990’s by Dee McCall and her family. What started with a unique idea mixed with hard work, perseverance and a dedication to quality grew into the global brand McCall’s is today. Originally a wood manufacturer for the tole-painting industry, “McCall’s Country Canning” entered the world of candle-making. The name quickly became McCall’s Candles when the decision was made to manufacture their own candles to put in the candle box for tole customers.
The first candles were presented in old-fashioned paint cans with handles. However, most gift and retail stores had a desire for a jar candle. After months of trial and error, a country jar candle with a rustic metal lid embossed with the McCall’s Country Canning logo was developed. Orders soon exceeded production capacity and many orders had to regretfully be turned down. After outgrowing the original Murrieta-based building, McCall’s relocated the shipping and distribution center to the old 80,000 square foot Fisher Manufacturing pool table factory on Highway 50 West in Tipton, Missouri in 2007. It is here that the candle and fragrance products are currently manufactured, poured are shipped to retailers and consumers across the country, Canada and abroad.
McCall’s Country Canning was acquired by Ozark Brands, Inc. in 2019. Ozark Brands looks to grow McCall’s Candle market share within farm and ranch stores and independent boutiques with its rustic farmhouse style candle and accessories. Development of a more contemporary brand that appeals to a broader audience in also in the company’s growth plans, along with adjacent categories as dictated by core customers. We remain a Made in America company, producing beautiful distinct, high-quality candle products. Our customers are central to our success. Each day we walk onto our factory floor, we bring with us “American Pride” and a dedication to our customers satisfaction.
