Sweet Sweet Love Candy Bar

Over the past few years, candy buffet tables have taken over by storm and have changed the way we host our events. This new and booming industry has made way for ‘creative sweet tooth thinkers’ to build thriving businesses, and Sweet Sweet Love Candy Bar is one of them. Yesterday we listened to Va Waqalevu, founder of Sweet Sweet Love, to hear what she had to say about her work, the challenges and the advice she had to offer for others aspiring to do the same.

With the rise of the Candy Buffet revolution, what sets Sweet Sweet Love apart from the rest?

Quality of service and affordability is what’s unique about Sweet Sweet Love. In addition, my aim is to cater to a vast clientele base.


What inspires you to create your work?

My inspiration comes from the reaction of my clients and also potential clients that might book with me in the future. Knowing that my efforts and talent is appreciated, gives me the drive I need to succeed.


Any challenges along the way?

Yes, definitely! One of the most challenging factors would have to be the fact that Sweet Sweet Love is a new business. I’ve found that consumers tend to stick to who and what they’re familiar with rather than taking a chance with a new service.


What advice do you have for young entrepreneurs?

The only advice I have to give is this – you’ll sleep better knowing that you tried your best rather than being up all night thinking of what “could have been”. You’ll never know what you’re capable of until you try.


We’d like to thank Va from Sweet Sweet Love Candy Bar for her time, and we wish her all the best in the future. If you’d like to find out more, or to request a booking, you can find Sweet Sweet Love on Facebook
