Everett’s Swedish Torches started back in 2015 when the then 4th grader was studying business with Junior Achievement at his elementary school. He wanted to create a product he could make and sell. Something more scalable than a lemonade stand.
At a wedding that spring, he saw a large Swedish fire log and began making prototypes of his torches. He sourced materials from local businesses and continued to perfect his design. Lots of trial and error!
Eventually, Everett sold enough torches to buy a circular saw and pay back his Dad for the large drill bit he bought him to get started. Though Everett is in middle school now, his passion for business and torches continues to burn!
