LOCATIONS USING CANDLES
CANDLES PER LOCATION
Courtyard by Marriott has been using our Warm White Performance Series rechargeable tealights and square bottom glass holders for 10 years. The Amazing Flameless Candle is the only manufacturer with multiple shades of white candles; therefore, Marriott was able to find a color temperature that aligned perfectly with their vision.
Our flameless candles are lasting each location an average of 4.5 years amounting to millions of dollars in savings compared to any of the traditional candle options. Here’s a breakdown of the savings:
"We love how easy the flameless candles are to operate. They work great and look incredible and I’m blown away by how long they last."
