About Sweet Shoppe Candles

Sweet Shoppe Candles’ story is one of adventure, devotion, people, and lots of wax and delicious smelling fragrance oils. Leslie Gennari started selling to direct clients in her home kitchen in 2007 and landed her first wholesale accounts in 2009. A self-taught candle maker, Leslie turned her passion for making bakery candles into an opportunity to connect with others, create memories, and help make people feel loved with her creations.

 Working out of Reading Massachusetts, Leslie and her staff make each candle by hand with love and a spirit of excellence.

With real-life appearances and amazing aromas, it is no wonder clients come back year after year to order candles that look and smell so good you could almost eat them!

Sweet Shoppe Candles products have been featured in magazine publications, showcased on news segments at stations including WHDH Channel 7 and CBS Boston, as well as included in the 2012 Academy Awards goodie bags and 2013 Golden Globes goodie bags.

Sweet Shoppe's fake cakes and desserts are featured in movies sets like Christmas Chronicles 2 and Showtime's T.V. series Billions, Universal Studio's Haunted Houses, Chanel's Fashion Week in NYC 2023 and Century 21 home staging.
