Five and Dime Sweets was founded. We got our start as an eBay individual seller and just a few products.
We expanded our selection dramatically and launched an eBay store to take advantage of the consistently increasing traffic.
Our traffic and selection on eBay continued to expand. We continued offering exceptional customer service. Our exclusive website, fiveanddimesweets.com, is launched.
WHO IS FIVE AND DIME SWEETS?
Five and Dime Sweets isn't just owned and operated by the King family, Five and Dime Sweets IS the King family.
Kevin operates the day to day business of Five and Dime Sweets and Chelsea packs orders when she isn't chasing our daughter Charlie or our two dogs, Dudley and Finn.
WHY WAS FIVE AND DIME SWEETS FOUNDED?
Kevin and Chelsea were both heavily involved in their individual careers for many years after college. Five and Dime Sweets was founded as a way for us to take control of our path as a family and lay the groundwork for our future.
HISTORY OF FIVE AND DIME SWEETS
Kevin has been involved in e-commerce since 2012 in several different product categories and channels. The 2015 year end sales data revealed that candy and sweets were the #1 sales category for that year and in 2016 all other categories were dropped.
All focus was pivoted to learning the ins and outs, trends, patterns, and seasonality of the candy and sweets industry.
In 2017 Five and Dime Sweets was founded as a candy and sweets retailer exclusively.
