About Rosie O’Neill & Sugarfina
O'Neill is a newbie entrepreneur with a major sweet tooth. In 2012, alongside husband Josh Resnick, she launched Sugarfina, and has been named to Fast Company’s “100 Most Creative People” list and Goldman Sachs’ “100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs.”
Sugarfina offers high-quality artisan candies, made by small-batch candy makers around the world, such as gummy bears made with Dom Pérignon Champagne, chocolate-covered kumquats from Greece, rainbow-hued Kyoto Blossoms from Japan, and many more candies that are just as beautiful to look at as they are to taste.
Sugarfina opened its first shop in 2013 in Beverly Hills and now includes 25 boutiques and 15 Nordstrom shop-in-shops in major North American cities, and a wholesale presence at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
