Celebrity Restaurant Grease Fuels Growing Business
Is there a market for celebrity restaurant grease? Further makes hand soap and candles from waste grease of some of Los Angeles's finest restaurants. The business began when Marshall Dostal began using restaurant grease and converting it to biofuel for his car. His wife Megan, a former event planner for Vogue Magazine, saw the drums of glycerin, a byproduct of the process and a business was born. Further products use an aromatic scent of bergamot, olive and exotic grasses. The Further candle is made from purified waste grease from Mario Batali and Nancy Silverton's delicious Mozza restaurant and sells for $24. I love this idea, I think there could be a whole line of signature candles for various restaurants.
