Sweet Shop USA has been a part of Mount Pleasant since July of 2008 after being relocated from Ft. Worth, TX. Due to a flood, Sweet Shop needed a new place for their business. Mount Pleasant seemed like the perfect fit. Jim and Krista Webb packed up their business, along with around 20 of their current employees, and headed this way. The Sweet Shop manufactures handmade gourmet truffles and chocolates “including our signature pieces Fudge Love, Famous Brags, Mrs. Weinstein’s Toffee and Annaclair’s.”
Since relocating in 2008, business has yet to slow down for the Sweet Shop. After getting the opportunity to sit down and speak with Sweet Shop’s CEO, Krista Webb, I could see that to be true. Krista mentioned, “I never leave Christmas.” Whether it being around Christmas time, a couple weeks after, or right in the middle of summer, the Sweet Shop is constantly in Christmas mode. Christmas is their busiest season and they like to stay up on the latest trends in preparation for their upcoming lines. Aside from Christmas other busy holidays include: Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and Easter.
Sweet Shop USA chocolates are sold world-wide. You might think of most of their buyers being traditional department and grocery stores, however they are very diversified. Along with those stores include florists, wineries, hardware stores, garden centers, and more. While a lot of their top buyers are from large markets, “small stores are our bread and butter.”
So what does the Sweet Shop have in the works for the summer you ask? The month of June is when the Sweet Shop goes to their summer market. Every year they like to be able to introduce new lines, new flavors, and new looks for the upcoming holidays. Sweet Shop will keep an item or collection around for about 2 to 3 years. This summer a lot of fun new favors were introduced including; crisp apple caramel, maple pecan sweet potato, peppermint mocha, red velvet, and peanut butter and pretzel truffles. If one of these flavors light your taste buds, stop by the Sweet Shop TODAY!!
