Last week, we followed a tip that Sugarfina would open soon on Union Street, but we didn't expect that the upscale sweets brand would have double the fun planned for San Francisco. That's right, everyone: there will soon be two Sugarfina locations in the city.
The first location is scheduled to open on May 1st in Union Square at 272 Sutter Street. Cow Hollow's outpost at 1837 Union Street will closely follow on May 15th. Both stores will measure around 1,200 square feet and feature the signature turquoise bentos and chic Lucite boxes that make the delicious candies extra special (and perfect for gifting).
"We created Sugarfina because the candy store of our dreams didn't exist and we're delighted to open two new storefronts in San Francisco," co-founders Rosie O'Neill and Josh Resnick reveal in an official statement. "We dreamed of gourmet sweets made with premium ingredients —candy that's as beautiful to look at as it is to taste— and our new stores bring delicious, never-before-seen candies to the Bay Area."
To celebrate landing in SF, Sugarfina will introduce a new series of limited edition "I [heart] San Francisco" bento boxes ($60 for the eight-piece, and $25 for the three-piece), featuring custom illustrations and candies produced in the Bay Area, such as matcha green tea caramels. Schedule in those dentist appointments and gym sessions because life in SF is about to get so much sweeter.
