A Day in the Life: Lagniappe Candle

At age 16, Taylor Bice of Slaughter is already a business veteran. Two years ago she started her own small company: Lagniappe Candle Co. In 2013 she rented a space at a small new store in Central, and her candle sales took off. The Generation Z teen now sells her creations at Lovely Little Nest in Watson, Honey's Love in Zachary and Southern Charm in Central, and has two more locations in the works. Bice also has a worldwide e-commerce website: lagniappecandle.com. As the name implies, every candle comes with a "little something extra." Depending on the Lagniappe line, the candles contain a piece of jewelry valued between $25 and $5,000, Pandora-style charms or beads, gift cards or codes, or the key to a treasure chest containing a child's prize. The Maniappe line is just for him: Those candles contain cash, multi-tools, knives, flashlights and the like.
