The Sweet Granada is in the heart of Emporia’s growing arts and entertainment district next to the historic Granada Theatre. Customers not only enjoy the chocolates, but our shop is a fun shopping destination complementing the beautiful Spanish Revival architecture of the theatre.
Our business is certainly a family affair. In November 2004, the mother-daughter team of Toni Bowling and Kim Redeker opened The Sweet Granada at its original location in the Granada Theatre south storefront. Toni’s son, Steve, helped design the shop. Toni’s husband, Steve, could be found dipping white chocolate doggie treats. And, Kim’s husband, Steve (yes, that’s right - they are all named Steve) is the official Sweet Granada bookkeeper. Kim and Steve’s children, Emmy and Joe, have grown up in the business and continue to do their share especially during school breaks. And all other family members, have the best job of all - official test tester!
In October 2013, The Sweet Granada moved to its new Home Sweet Home right next door where customers enjoy watching the production team at work while browsing the retail shop for all their favorite confections. And for all kinds of chocolate shenanigans, follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
