Campaign Description

We are looking to raise money for our new business, The Candy Shoppe. We will be selling old-fashioned candy and sweets, and we need your help to get started. Our startup costs include buying supplies, and hiring staff but one of the biggest things we need your help with will be the renovations that require a secret access door to the surprise that awaits you beyond. We are confident that we can provide a great product and excellent customer service, but we need your help to get started. Any amount that you can donate would be greatly appreciated. We would love to inform you more about the secret that we have and those that donate will get a special sneak peek sooner than anyone else. If I were to give you a hint about what you may see through the secret passageway, just think of America, 1920 - 1933....

Fun For Everyone

Our Plan

We plan to open thanksgiving of 2022, and then a grand opening on Halloween. Our Candy Shoppe will be serving coffee, Italian sodas, soft-serve, and nostalgic candy. We hope to create a unique and welcoming atmosphere for our customers. Our goal is to provide a comfortable and fun place for people to gather and enjoy themselves. We appreciate your interest in our Candy Shoppe, and we look forward to serving you in the future.

 

 

Just Imagine....

You walk into The Candy Shoppe with your family or your friends and you’re immediately greeted by our Sweets Representative and invited to look around. You take a moment to really take in what you’re seeing: a wall of candies behind the counter, a display of classic boxed candies in front, a soft serve machine, a few small booths for you and your family, and a menu that boasts Italian sodas, soft serve, and coffee.

Your children look at you with wide eyes, excited about what they’re seeing. Your friends look at you with awe and excitement for the classic candies of their youth that you’ve found. Your group decides to order soft serve and sit down, taking time to enjoy the music from the 1920s and enjoy the experience that is The Candy Shoppe.

Once you’re done with your ice cream, you take your family and friends to the front counter where our Sweets Representative is waiting to help you get all of your favorite individual candies. Take a moment to customize your candy bag, let your kids pick their favorites, and let your friends grab theirs from in front of the counter.

Our Sweets Representative will make sure everything is bagged for you and will ring up your order and offer you one of our free candies for your way out the door.

You’ll take one last look around, your kids will beg you to come back, and your friends will feel sentimental when everyone walks out of The Candy Shoppe, already planning what to get on the next trip inside.

 

How did The Candy Shoppe come to be?

Charlie and Rebekah had been thinking about what they felt could add to a day out on the town with their friends and family. Their love for nostalgia led them to imagine that Main Street Leduc could be the location for a unique shopping experience where people could come to get their favorite candies, or a quick drink or snack, while stepping back into time with a truly nostalgic decor theme and exemplary customer service. We don't have to live in Los Angeles or New York to provide a memorable experience for everyone. With Rebekah's years of theater and Charlie's 15 years in the hospitality industry, they began to imagine a way that they could provide a unique experience right here in downtown Leduc. We believe that by having a sweet shop during the day that caters to families and groups of friends that want a full nostalgic experience, we can build an iconic destination that people from surrounding areas will want to visit as well as those from Leduc. With a mix of entertainment, music, drinks, and sweets, as well as top-notch service, we believe we have something special to share with everyone.
