Sugarfina Makes Bricks-and-Mortar Debut
November 25, 2013

Candy company Sugarfina recently opened its first-ever store in Los Angeles. Located at 9495 S. Santa Monica Blvd., the 1,400-sq.-ft. store features the previously online-only brand’s signature turquoise Bento Boxes and encourages consumers to customize their own box by selecting from more than 140 candies from around the world. Candy consultants are available to help customers design their box based on their taste profile. The “candy heaven” store design features a large glass skylight with airy bubble chandeliers that hang like clouds in the sky. Sugarfina candy in hundreds of colors lines the walls on thin floating shelves, so the candy appears to be floating. The store also features a candy tasting bar, which offers a selection of 60 candies on regular rotation. Sugarfina made its debut August 2012 selling its confections online, including its top-selling cocktail candies.
