In the 1950s, tiki culture was in full swing. Pacific Island-themed restaurants, bars and even living rooms were all the rage. At the height of tiki popularity, the first original TIKI® torch was produced, igniting a backyard tradition that still burns brightly over 60 years later.
A yard illuminated by TIKI® torches quickly came to symbolize the ultimate backyard gathering. They were the choice of savvy party hosts who had a knack for creating a festive mood. Guests welcomed by TIKI® torches knew they were in for a good time with family and friends.
In 2001, TIKI® Brand became part of Lamplight®, also makers of outdoor torches, candles and torch fuels. As a family-owned company, we’ve always had a passion for helping family and friends connect with each other at home. We believed TIKI® Brand could help anyone create paradise in their backyard and quickly started designing new TIKI® Brand products to appeal to a wide variety of people with different yards, patios and styles.
Today, we continue to enter exciting new territory with more stylish designs and innovative products like Clean Burn™ Tabletop Firepieces and Torch Fuel, which dramatically reduce soot and smoke. And as long as there are backyards, TIKI® Brand will continue to invite family, friends and neighbors to gather around its warm glow.
Lamplight Farms Incorporated, based in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, is proud to be part of the W.C. Bradley Co. family of companies, along with other leisure and lifestyle brands including Char-Broil® and Zebco®.
