Smith and Co. Candles LLC, a family-owned candle company based in Eau Claire is offering the “Elite Day” car-wash-scented candles and wax melts online with a partnership with Kwik Trip.

“Earlier this summer, we teamed up with the Smith & Co. team to launch the Glazers®-Scented Candle. This was new territory for our company, so we were thrilled to see the positive feedback surrounding the launch,” said Kendra Nedegaard, digital content supervisor at Kwik Trip.

Although the secret to Kwik Trip’s good-smelling suds is top secret, the candle ill transport you straight to the car wash, according to Kwik Trip.

“We knew we needed to make this scent a reality, said Kenna Smith-Hoff, owner of Smith & Co. Candles LLC. “It’s especially near and dear to my heart because my dad Jim works for Kwik Trip as their lead Car Wash Field Service Supervisor and oversees car wash production and maintenance in all three states. He has worked for Kwik Trip for over 20 years, so Kwik Trip runs deep in my family.”

The Elite Day candle is now available for online purchase at
