Life should be sweet


At Sugarfina, we make everyday moments a little sweeter. We've partnered with artisan candy makers around the world to bring sweets that inspire the eyes and excite the palate.



Our core values of luxury, playfulness, and innovation allow us to appeal to our coveted customer demographic of fashionable, influential women.


The Problem


The candy market is too focused on selling to children

Historically the market for candy and confections has been made up of brands like M&Ms and Sour Patch Kids, which focus on targeting children as end-users. However, sophisticated adults love candy too and few confections brands speak directly to them.

The Solution


Sugarfina: Candy store for grown-ups



We offer artisan confections for the fashion-forward female.


Each of our price points delivers on our promise of Attainable Luxury, Playfulness, and Innovation.


Our products are not only a delicious treat, but a sight to behold, thanks to our in-house innovation and creative teams, partnerships with artisanal candy makers and brands from around the world, and commitment to the highest quality.


The Market


The global confectionery market is expected to hit $214B

According to MarketWatch, analysts predict that the global market for confections will reach $214B by 2026, up from $190B. 

Our target demographic of fashionable, influential women have been a major part of our brand’s rapid growth via social media. Over 90% of our shoppers are women.


We received the 2020 Wine Award from Cosmopolitan® Magazine for Best Rose Candy and have been featured in Vogue®, People® Magazine, Food & Wine, Forbes, Us Weekly, and The Today Show.

Our Traction


Approximately $25 million in revenue in 2020


   

Since we acquired Sugarfina in November 2019, we have leveraged the long-term growth potential of the brand by expanding distribution across our four sales channels as well as launching three new innovation platforms in 2020, and have plans to launch new innovations nearly every month in 2021.


We have implemented a go-to-market strategy that has dramatically optimized our inventory management, shipping, and supply chain processes while improving our gross margins and cash management.


WHAT WE DO


We sell luxury confections, with something for everyone



Our line of confections is a comprehensive blend of everything ranging from gummies to cordials, cocktail candies, and chocolate bars.

One of our signature offerings is the Candy Bento Box ®, which boasts a curated assortment of our Candy Cubes ®. This patented packaging system allows for total customization in-store and online thanks to the “Design Your Own Bento Box ®” feature.

We sell both directly to consumers and to wholesale retailers like specialty grocers, online gifting platforms, and specialty gift shops.


THE BUSINESS MODEL


A diverse portfolio for a truly omnichannel positioning, approximately 50% of sales from DTC

We have diversified our business model to capture new distribution opportunities while broadening our reach. Our omnichannel approach takes in revenue from five main sources: 

Retail boutiques make up approximately 18.8% of our sales coming from 25 retail locations in North America.

Ecommerce represents over 34.1% of our sales and is our highest growth channel.


Wholesale provides 37.9% of our sales through over 2000 prestige wholesalers including accounts like Nordstrom ®, Bloomingdales ®, Paper Source ®, and high-end specialty grocers around the US and Canada.


Custom Corporate Gifting sales make up 6.8%, through over 1300 corporate and event clients.


International sales make up the remaining 2.4%, with a presence in Hong Kong, Australia, South Korea, Spain, and Japan.


*Omnichannel %sales as of December 2020

HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT


Broad intellectual property portfolio-making for a strong competitive advantage

We are a leader in the luxury candy and premium gummy space.

Thanks to our IP portfolio, this position is largely defensible, and as we continue to build our brand through increased marketing and branding campaigns — including our iconic packaging — we believe our market share is likely to increase.


THE VISION


Never stop innovating — both in product and in distribution

In addition to expanding our ever-growing list of products— we just launched new collections, including Spa by Sugarfina, our all-vegan Tropical Collection made with real fruit purée, and our new Hampton Water® Rosé Candy Bento Box®— we are continuously expanding distribution.

Our plans include expanding onto Amazon® USA and Rakuten® Japan, growing our specialty grocery store accounts, including internationally, opening retail stores selectively in strategic locations throughout the U.S., and ramping up distribution at our new centralized Las Vegas facility to meet increasing product demand. We are also exploring further wholesale expansion into Europe and Southeast Asia, as well as into the UK and the Middle East.


We are investing in digital marketing as well, to continue scaling our higher margin and higher growth eCommerce business.

Our buzz-worthy co-branded collaborations continue to surprise and delight our customers with new ways to think about candy with exciting new partners coming in 2021.

OUR LEADERSHIP


Innovative & passionate about our product


We are a dedicated and forward-thinking team focused on building the future of the candy market.

After acquiring Sugarfina we have focused on placing experienced executives and leaders in charge of their given specialties and have empowered them to thrive in their roles, which has resulted in a unique culture of innovation and collaboration. The Sugarfina leadership team has a combined 100+ years of experience in consumer businesses and building aspirational consumer brands.

WHY INVEST


Loyal customers and an amazing product



We have already proven through our efforts to appeal to our target audience of sophisticated, influential, and fashion-forward women, that we have an ideal product-market fit.


We believe our stellar reputation among these key audiences positions our brand to grow sustainably and rapidly in the next few years.

A New Sugarfina Trend-Setter: Elderberry Bears

7 months ago

As Sugarfina continues to develop unique, on-trend products, and flavors with colorful aesthetics, we are thrilled to announce our newest collection, Revive. Featuring new Elderberry Bears and best-selling Clementine Bears, this one-of-a-kind 2 Piece Candy Bento Box® is sure to delight tastebuds to sweet rest and relaxation. 


While prioritizing physical and mental health continues to be an important topic of discussion throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, elderberries quickly become a hot topic of conversation. With product development at the forefront of Sugarfina, we saw an opportunity to introduce customers to a new flavor profile with Elderberry Bears, made with real elderberries. 


A new process to Sugarfina, the elderberry flakes seen in our Elderberry Bears are dehydrated by proprietary Radiance Vacuum Dehydration technology, a low-temperature drying method that maintains the product’s color and flavor during the drying process. The technology can be attributed to our visually and texturally appealing Elderberry Bears that burst in juicy flavors of elderberry. 


Self-care at Sugarfina means treating yourself and your palate. Both our Elderberry Bears and Clementine Bears can be found in our Revive 2 Piece Candy Bento Box®, the perfect gift for you or a loved one who deserves a sweet, reviving reward.

Highlights from our 2020 Annual Report!

over 1 year ago

I am happy to share with you all the filing of our 2020 Annual Report on Form 1-K, which you can access by clicking on the “Sugarfina Corporation’s SEC Edgar Page” link here on our StartEngine page. This report contains company results and financials for the fiscal year 2020, and while 2020 was one of the most challenging years in recent memory, we are proud to share with you our results and a little more of what is to come in 2021.

Some significant 2020 achievements we want to highlight:

  • $25 million in sales during 2020 despite the COVID-19 shutdowns
  • Improved our net earnings by $40 million
  • Increased our e-commerce channel revenues to 34% of our total business, versus 16% in 2019 and was up 37% YOY
  • Increased gross margin as a percentage of net revenue by 14% versus 2019
  • 2020 holiday sales of our famous Advent Calendar exceeded sales in 2019
  • Reduced selling, general and administrative expenses by $28 million, or 63%, versus 2019
  • Opened three new retail stores in key Southern California locations on favorable terms
  • Expanded international distribution into Australia and Japan
  • Grew our e-commerce customer list from 424,000 subscribers at the beginning of 2020 to 480,000 potential customers
  • Launched brand new innovations, like our Tea, Gelato, and Cookie Collections, Cold Brew Cordials, and vegan Cranberry Cocktail Bears

Despite the unforeseen COVID-19 related challenges in the year 2020, I must say that I am very proud of our results as a company, and I am extremely proud of the team of talented and hard-working professionals at Sugarfina who worked tirelessly to see the company through the depths of the pandemic, positioning us for a successful 2020 holiday season.

Retail sales in our boutiques were down $13 million primarily due to the COVID-19 closures and our exiting unprofitable retail locations opened by our predecessor company. Starting in mid-March we closed our retail stores and began re-opening them starting mid-June 2020 at restricted occupancy levels that lasted through year-end. We worked quickly to pivot to our e-commerce channel and grow our own list of social media followers and email subscribers, as well as to launch our own Amazon storefront. Similarly, when many of our wholesale accounts were forced to close their stores, we quickly moved to make Sugarfina products available online with a wide variety of internet retailers and expanded our distribution into the retail accounts that were universally open in North America such as gourmet grocery stores. We also took the opportunity to identify and eliminate waste by cutting our unprofitable products, reducing inventory investment, and rebuilding our new product innovation processes.

Now, as retail sales are increasing with the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine and as our custom sales pick back up with the increase in weddings, baby showers, and similar events, we are poised to benefit from the strong foundation we built during the pandemic, including increased e-commerce sales, a variety of new online and grocery wholesale accounts, new retail boutiques, more favorable gross margins, and drastically lowered expenses.

We encourage our investors and prospective investors alike to peruse our 1-K filing and to leave us their questions and comments here on our StartEngine landing page. We look forward to another year of growth and expansion as we spread sweetness to even more fans around the world.

I’m pleased to announce our partnership with Resorts World Las Vegas, set to open early Summer 2021. We are excited to partner with the Genting Group’s Las Vegas team to be part of this property, which is one of the largest 5-star, luxury real estate developments in North America.

Interview with Kevin O’Leary (Mr. Wonderful)

over 1 year ago

Dear Investors,

 

I am excited to share that Sugarfina was featured on the latest installment of StartEngine’s MEET THE INNOVATOR series. I sat down with Kevin O’Leary (also known as Mr. Wonderful on Shark Tank) and discussed Sugarfina’s strategic decision to partner with StartEngine on equity crowdfunding.

 

We chatted about Sugarfina’s unique brand position in luxury confections, our aggressive pipeline to introduce new product innovation, our focus on e-commerce, and our thoughtful plans for expansion – including a new, centralized distribution center in Las Vegas. We also dug into the rationale behind equity crowdfunding which was to invite our beloved customers to be a part of our company’s journey as we grow.

NEW International Partnerships

over 1 year ago

As we continue to accelerate our global expansion, I’m excited to let you all know that Sugarfina is officially live on Rakuten, Japan’s second-largest e-commerce site. We are thrilled to bring our innovative products and iconic packaging to Japanese consumers through this direct-to-consumer e-commerce platform, with our very own branded storefront.

 

The online assortment includes core Sugarfina candies such as Sugar Lips®, Bubbly Bears®, Rosé All Day® Bears, and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels, alongside our new Tea by Sugarfina and Holiday Collections. We also offer our famed Design Your Own Candy Bento Box® experience for consumers to treat themselves.

 

While Sugarfina has an existing presence in Asia with our two retail boutiques in Hong Kong, this is the first time Sugarfina has been introduced directly to Japanese consumers. Due to the pervasive gifting culture in Japan, we feel the Sugarfina brand image and ideals fit the consumer culture well – not to mention, our Asian-inspired Candy Bento Boxes® and other luxurious and giftable packaging. Check out our page here!


Additionally, I’m excited to share that we partnered with upmarket Australian department store, Myer, to bring Sugarfina “down under” for the 2020 holiday season. The full product assortment, which included fan-favorites such as Bubbly Bears®, Birthday Cake Caramels, and Watermelon Slices, was listed on Myer’s e-commerce site for viewing and to place an in-store pickup order. Sugarfina was available for purchase inside 43 Myer locations across the country and merchandised in their famous Giftoriums.


We’ve received many requests over the past year from customers who visited us in the United States and wished we would expand to Australia. We are thrilled we were able to delight those customers with an in-store experience and hope to continue offering Sugarfina every holiday season.

NEW Sugarfina Boutiques

over 1 year ago

I’m happy to share that we’ve opened four new Sugarfina boutiques across Southern California, where many of our key consumers are located. The current economic environment has enabled us to opportunistically secure these new locations in upscale shopping centers, under attractive variable percentage of sales rent structures with minimal capital investment.

 

We’re excited to introduce Sugarfina to Westfield Topanga, a key location in the greater Los Angeles area. We are now open at Westfield Santa Anita, where Sugarfina previously held a boutique for two years with many loyal and returning customers in that region. Additionally, we have opened shops at Westfield Fashion Square and Westfield Culver City, locations close to one of our best-performing boutiques nationwide, Westfield Century City.

Did you catch us on Today Show?

over 1 year ago

As we wrap up a busy holiday season, I’m happy to share details of one of our most successful partnerships last quarter, a national flash sale with Jill’s Steals & Deals on the Today Show – driving brand awareness, product trial, and traffic to our e-commerce site!


This 24-hour flash sale went live on December 4th and featured three Today Show exclusive bundles – our Bourbon Bundle, Winter Wonderland Bundle, and Sweet & Sparkling Bundle. All three bundles featured iconic Sugarfina candy perfect for the holiday gifting season and we even received a great shout-out on the air from Carson Daly, who purchased four!

 

Within the first four hours of the sale, we sold out of the Bourbon Bundle and were close to selling out of the other two offerings. After 24 hours, we sold almost 5,000 units. Given the success of the promotion, the Today Show has invited us back for a Mother’s Day feature in April 2021.

Introducing our Las Vegas Center!

over 1 year ago

With a number of growth initiatives we’ve recently launched and several opportunities on the horizon for 2021, I’m thrilled to announce the opening of our new warehouse and logistics center, located in Las Vegas, Nevada. Our target opening date for this fulfillment center is late May, expanding the capacity to service our ever-expanding customer base and distribution platforms.

 

This facility will be our primary location to ship and house goods in a strong, pro-business climate. The low regulatory and pro-business environment in Las Vegas presents a huge opportunity for Sugarfina and the expertise in the labor force in this area is outmatched and readily available.

 

We believe a more central warehouse will increase fill rate and on-time shipping while providing tremendous efficiencies in our inventory and working capital management.

NEW Grocery Retailers!

over 1 year ago

As we continue Sugarfina’s expansion into the “gourmet grocery” world, I am excited to share more about our recent partnerships with two premium grocers in key major cities – Mariano’s in Chicago, and Andronico’s in Northern California. We are thrilled to expand into these essential businesses where our target consumer is already shopping for their premium groceries.


We launched in 28 Mariano’s locations in November with a beautiful presentation of holiday and core best-sellers, bringing the very best of Sugarfina to Chicagoland! We partnered with Mariano’s on their bakery and confections strategic initiative. In 2021, we plan to convert the existing fixtures into Sugarfina branded destinations, bringing even more of our iconic branding to life in this luxury grocery space.


With Andronico’s, we launched Sugarfina branded fixtures into three of their top volume stores in San Francisco, Los Altos, and Berkeley, California. The fixtures feature 15 of our best-selling Small Candy Cubes® along with a holiday assortment that brought the Sugarfina magic of the holidays to Northern California. We’re very pleased with the initial sales on the fixtures and are now expanding into two additional locations in early 2021.


If you’re in Northern California or Chicago, make sure to stop by!

Birth of Sugarfina 2.0

over 1 year ago

Dear Potential Investor,

 

Thank you for considering investing in Sugarfina. I would like to share with you a little about the unique journey of the Sugarfina brand. 

 

My partners and I acquired the brand and assets of Sugarfina out of bankruptcy on October 31, 2019 at what we believe was a discount to the operating value in a properly led organization. The primary assets included the trademarks and design patents, accounts receivable, and inventory of the predecessor company. I believe our investment price reflected the standalone value of these individual assets in a public auction and not that of a vibrant operating company. We quickly began re-building the operations in the first few months while filling as many orders as possible with the limited product inventory we acquired. Then, the COVID-19 pandemic struck. During this period of time I designed, built, and implemented a new operating model training our team on new ways of working and decision-making that accelerated performance. Over the summer months we put the brand in position for a highly successful fall-holiday season with strong in-stock levels, new product innovation, new points of distribution, and captivating new Halloween and Holiday offerings. We sold over 30,000 Advent Calendars this year at an average retail price of $45!

 

We are truly optimistic as we move into 2021. Some of our 2021 initiatives include:

 

  1. Launching newly designed Lunar New Year, Valentine’s Day, and Easter collections

  2. Bringing to market a vegan Tropical fruit-inspired collection and a separate vegan gummy and chocolate bar collection 

  3. Ramping up our new online stores on Amazon and Rakuten

  4. Launching four new exciting brand collaborations

  5. Building a new centralized distribution center in Las Vegas dynamically expanding our capacity 

  6. Continue expanding our presence in premium grocers

  7. Expanding and accelerating our social media and public relations initiatives

 

I truly believe that the bankruptcy of Sugarfina’s predecessor handed my partners and I a great opportunity to take a fantastic brand with valuable assets and loyal fans, and to commercialize it as it deserved. We are thrilled to develop strategies and initiatives to pursue the many opportunities we see each week, and to bring luxury, indulgence, and sweetness to more consumers, whether at home, in our boutiques, in their favorite shops and grocery stores, or around the world. We invite you to become a part of the unique story of the Sugarfina brand by investing in our vision for the future.

Introduction from CEO

over 1 year ago

I hope this note finds you safe and healthy during this holiday season! I’m pleased to introduce myself as the CEO and Co-Investor of Sugarfina. This brand fused a valuable synergy in my life, uniting a long passion for delighting consumers and my persisting sweet tooth. After an exciting first year, I’m honored to welcome you on this journey of dreaming and working together to bring more joy, to more people.

 

My three partners and I purchased Sugarfina on November 1, 2019. Our iconic brand partners with expert confectioners to develop a truly indulgent experience that makes folks of all ages smile with delight. We believe that we can profitably and dynamically expand distribution and provide more consumers a sweet, luxury experience with innovative treats from around the world.

 

Before leading Sugarfina, I developed and commercialized under-managed businesses into high-growth enterprises in the healthy snacking and beverage, hospitality, and apparel consumer segments. My strategic vehicles for success are innovation, distribution expansion, operations, and financial in nature; and my 25 years of C-level experience includes leadership positions with highly competitive, aspiration-driven consumer brands such as GT’s Kombucha, Bolthouse Farms, Levi Strauss, Caesar’s, Hilton, and Marriott.

 

Since acquiring Sugarfina, our team has been streamlining and commercializing operations while expanding and diversifying our customer base into new countries and onto more digital and online channels. Meanwhile, we brought to market innovative collections inspired by tea, gelato, and cookies while refreshing the brand’s distinctive, gift-ready packaging. Our business this Fall and Holiday season has been robust, and we are excited about 2021 and beyond!

 

I remain committed to you, our team, and our loyal customers as we navigate this unique time in history, with the goal of bringing the Sugarfina brand to more consumers across the globe and delivering them joyful treats. We are grateful to have you all join us on this journey and look forward to an exciting pursuit, hand in hand.
