After selling out at all of their sales events at the Academy prior to Christmas, with their Christmas Spice and Apple and Cinnamon scents, the enterprising Sixth Formers then revised their product. Their new Vanilla and Blueberry and Orange Zest Scents have now also sold out since they were launched at the beginning of 2017.
While making a modest profit at the end of their Young Enterprise experience, all members of the business agreed they benefitted from the competition in many more ways than just making money. The competition structure involved constructing business plans, creating monthly financial reports, managing and organising meetings and speaking at public competitions. The main event consisted of selling their product at the Tonbridge Farmers Market where WaxEco were one of the busiest stalls on the day, with their candles in glass jars and tins proving very popular.
