Opening up a dynamic and delicious candy store was something that was always in the back of Paola Giavedoni’s mind. After working for a commercial photographer in Toronto, Paola decided it was time to take a risk and open her own sweets shop, The Candy Bar. “The Candy Bar evolved from a passion I had to start my own business and be my own boss. I wanted all my energies focused on advancing my brand and business”, states Paola. Before the raving reviews and success, Paola knew she needed the guidance and support from an organization like TBDC. Paola explains, “TBDC helped me put the right elements in place to start my business,” and with the continuous mentorship and encouragement from TBDC, Paola is successfully running her own business today.
With the holiday season underway, The Candy Bar has been asked to participate in the Outdoor Festive Market at The Shops at Don Mills every weekend in December leading up to Christmas, where customers can visit their cart stocked with plenty of sweets and treats. Due to the high demand for her products, Paola is launching a new website and online shop where people from all over can order her delicious treats.
We cannot wait to see what exciting treats Paola has in store!
