Restaurant & Hospitality
If you have made it to this page, you are probably a restaurant that burns dinner candles or wants to do so. Here is a bunch of information about GoodLight Natural Candles, why we are different, and how buying our candles can help your business.
Going Green: Like every other industry, restaurants are recognizing the benefits of going green: energy costs go down, less waste is generated, and toxic chemicals are eliminated from our food supply. While this is great for marketing, it's better because it's simply the right thing to do. Switching from paraffin dinner candles to GoodLight is an inexpensive way to make your restaurant a “green restaurant”, not to mention, much healthier. Also, if you are certified by the Green Restaurant Association (GRA), or are working towards GRA certification, you'll earn 2.5 points by replacing your paraffin candles with GoodLight.
What is paraffin? The candles burning in restaurants everywhere are made of paraffin wax, a byproduct of oil refineries. The fumes from paraffin candles contain chemicals that aren’t good for your guests or staff to inhale. Think about it—you’ve invested a lot into high-quality ingredients from carefully chosen purveyors to create the best meals for your guests. It seems like the next logical step is to remove the petroleum fumes from the air to complete the experience. Read more about paraffin here.
Pricing & Options: GoodLight candles are the first paraffin-free candles ever that are competitively priced with paraffin candles. Prior to GoodLight, the only other natural candles on the market cost AT LEAST three times what paraffin costs. For most restaurateurs, non-toxic candles were cost-prohibitive. With GoodLight, that is no longer the case.
*Marketing Help: Once you have made the switch to GoodLight, we will help you communicate this choice to your clients. We can provide free promotional materials —for web sites, menus, tables, etc—announcing the choice you’ve made: “This establishment is proud to be paraffin-free. Because you breathe what you burn.” We will also provide additional publicity by linking to you through our social media networks, including you in our press releases, and listing the name of your establishment on our website under "Who's Burning GoodLight."
