House of Sweets in Dortmund: new store next to Thier gallery
Interestingly, in October last year, the confectionery shop “Fisher’s Sweet Shop”, located in the basement of the Thier-Gallery, surprisingly closed. A shop with a similar concept to House of Sweets, but only for American gifts.
Bright, bright colors and shop window prints in pop art designs ensure that the House of Suites at Westenhellweg 108 is hard to miss. The interior is just as colorful: the store’s floor is divided into rainbow-colored squares and loud hip-hop music reverberates through the store. The cash register is directly in front of the front door and to the left and right of the walls are tall shelves filled with colorful candy wrappers.
The most popular sweets from around the world can be bought here: Timtam Biscuits from Australia, American Twizzlers from Mexico and Takis Fuego (Fiery Chili Chips) There is a small selection of products on offer. There are also two fridges with soft drinks in the back of the shop.
Prices reflect that all products had to be imported and are based on House of Sweets’ online shop. For example, a 180g pack of Takis Fuego costs 5.99 euros.
House of Sweets in Dortmund: the idea behind The Candy Shop
Behind “House of Sweets” are three young men. The idea for the concept came to him as he traveled a lot and tried typical local snacks. You don’t get much of it in Germany.
So Sahim Gulsahim aka “Sugar King”, Tahir Gulsahim aka “Choco Hero” and Deniz Karadag aka “Mr Sweet” decided to bring a taste of the world to Germany. First in Braunschweig in 2018 and now in Berlin, Hamburg, Hanover, Leipzig – and now in Dortmund. The “House of Sweets” in Ruhr Park Bochum is yet to be found – but customers are delighted with the opening of an international fashion brand.
