Forbes Interview - How Sugarfina's Founders Built A Million-Dollar (And Very Instagrammable) Candy Company

January 17, 2018

How Sugarfina's Founders Built A Million-Dollar (And Very Instagrammable) Candy Company is an interview with Sugarfina cofounder Rosie O-Neill, who talks about her third date with cofounder (and now husband) Josh Resnick. The duo saw "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" and that sparked the idea for their future company. "After the movie, we became obsessed with the question: Where’s the candy store for grownups? Why isn’t there a place for people who love and appreciate beautiful, high-quality candies, presented in a fresh and modern way? Nothing like that existed in the United States, so we had the crazy idea to create it ourselves," says O'Neill. 
The superstar retail brand, which got its start online in 2012, before opening its first boutique in Beverley Hills, now has more than 24 stores across the United States and, mostly recently, Canada.
