About Us

Sugarbird Candle Co. is a new endeavor from mother/daughter team, Jennifer and Cheryl Stager. After working together for several years on their successful floral and baking business, Sugarbird Cakery & Floral Co., they are so excited to be branching out in this new exciting direction.

Cheryl was born in Nova Scotia and raised in Ontario. She studied Health Sciences at the University of Western Ontario and has worked in the hospital sector for the past 16 years. Sugarbird has been the perfect creative escape during a stressful and exhausting time. Cheryl loves experimenting with new scents, creating labels, researching the best candle vessels, and taking a hands-on approach to all aspects of candle-making. She currently lives in Bowmanville, Ontario with her husband and their crazy but loveable wheaten terrier, Piper. Her favourite candle scent is Boho Harvest (cardamom, vanilla and tobacco).

Jennifer was born in Northern Ontario and was a pharmacist until she happily retired a few years ago. Jennifer now spends a lot of her time travelling the world with her husband John. From African Safaris, to exploring the Australian Outback, to boating in Ecuador, they’re always in the planning stages of their next big adventure. She’s a proud Grandma to two adorable granddaughters, loves cooking and baking, and loves experimenting with new candle scents to share with their customers. Her favourite scent is Coffee Shop (Bourbon and Espresso).
