Welcome to The Black Express Company, a haven where family bonds and self-care intersect to create a tapestry of joy, warmth, and connection. As a family-owned business, we stand as living proof that nurturing wholesome relationships is the cornerstone of self-care and a fulfilling life.
The Genesis of Our Journey:
Our journey began in the wake of multiple instances of public police brutality, notably the tragic lynching of George Floyd, and just before the pandemic's arrival. The weight of going to work every day amid colleagues from different backgrounds who couldn't grasp the depth of our trauma was profound. Coupled with the pandemic's toll and the loss of countless lives, it was an immensely trying period.
As lifelong entrepreneurs with service-oriented ventures, our co-founders, Farlan and Tiffanie, each brought a unique skill set to the table. Farlan's roles as a licensed electrician, photographer, and DJ, combined with Tiffanie's expertise as a licensed real estate agent, makeup artist, and event planner, underpinned our commitment to excellence.
One pivotal day, while sitting together, we contemplated ways to unite our talents and create a family legacy that would not only secure generational wealth but also make a meaningful impact in our community. As we reflected on our own history, a shared love for candles emerged. This passion was encapsulated in a defining moment when Farlan gifted Tiffanie the largest candle he could find, symbolizing his serious intentions. Tiffanie held onto that candle, a testament to their commitment to each other and the idea of creating something special.
In that pivotal instant, the concept for The Black Express Company was born. Amid exhaustive research and countless late nights, we meticulously crafted our inaugural collection of candles. Each one bore names like Unity, Revolution, Harmony, Power, Peace, Faith, Inspire, and Clarity, embodying positivity and motivation – qualities we believe everyone deserves.
This journey represents our dedication to fostering not just a business, but a movement built on shared values and meaningful connections.
