The People Behind Our Products: Big White Yeti Candle Company

Big White Yeti is a well-known and beloved Milwaukee brand for good reason. The candle brand is lively and fun, not to mention, incredibly well-made. Big White Yeti candles are produced with 100% soy wax, pure fragrance oils and undiluted essential oils, and cotton wicks. That's it; pure, long lasting candles that the owners take pride in. The wife & husband duo behind the successful brand are Katie Daley Weiss and her husband, Cody Weiss who each exude enthusiasm for the local community and the entrepreneurial spirit. We love keeping Olson House stocked with Big White Yeti candles and connected with Katie to get the inside scoop.
