A budding batch of entrepreneurs from North Chadderton's Young Enterprise group have gone from strength to strength and have recently secured a partnership with Oldham Athletic Football Club.
The team from North Chadderton have created their own company, Sweet Course Candle, in which they have combined two of the hottest current markets - candles and baking - by developing a range of dessert smelling candles. The 'flavours' on offer include Lemon Drizzle Cake, Millionaires Short Bread, Vanilla Crème Brulee and Strawberry Cheesecake. The candles that smell good enough to eat all come with a recipe card which gives you step-by-step instructions on how to make your cake; so that's where Sweet Course effective tag line comes in, 'Burn It and Bake It'!
Sweet Course Candle truly has been a burning success, not only did the team win the area final in Rochdale, Oldham, Tameside and Stockport, as well as winning the best presentation and student of the year award. But the company has also been approached by Glitter Glamour Glasses who want their product sold by the company.
When the company were announced winners at the area final the team jumped up with joy and realised just how successful their product and their company is. The company are now working towards the Greater Manchester final which takes place on Thursday, May 1.
More so, the company are creating a limited edition Oldham Athletic candle - the 'Latics Delight' - which will be sold in the store and at home games.
So show your support to these local young people and burn it and bake it!
