Meet The Owners

kristy
My name is Kristy and I am founder and co-owner of Sweetness. I am an avid lover of yoga pants and it’s a rare occasion you’d find me in anything else. I’m a firm believer that poutine could be eaten for every meal, coffee is my lifeline, and I love travelling and backpacking (ask me some day about getting drugged and robbed on a bus in Thailand; I wish I was joking). I am a wife to my incredible husband of over 8 years and a mom to 3 beautiful children Harper (2 yrs), Declan (3 yrs) and Kenz (5 yrs); yes, I had 3 kids in 3.5 years…did I mention I am fueled by coffee?

I am so proud of Sweetness and it’s growth: to think it was over 4 years ago I started baking cakes and cookies for my kids’ parties and now Mary and I are sharing our story, our passion, and our delicious cookies with the world!

I’ve been blessed with such a supportive family who has encouraged me to follow my dreams, as crazy as they may be! This company is a testament to hard work, dreaming big, taking risks and never, ever, giving up. We can’t wait to get to know you, share our sweetness and add some happiness to your day!

Mary
My name is Mary and I am co-owner of Sweetness. After 7 years of work in Technical sales and support, I am retiring my business wardrobe for an apron and am thrilled to able to do it! I love to bake and fiddle with recipes, and have such a passion for creating in the kitchen. In my free time you’ll find me enjoying the outdoors: fishing, quadding, camping, hiking, you name it- I’m in! I’m a nerd at heart adoring comic books and gaming (both video and computer, I don’t discriminate), and have been known to devour sushi as long as it's the real raw meat sushi, none of that fake stuff! I’m married to an amazing man who is patient and supportive and together we have a fur baby named Gus. Despite my efforts I am yet to convince my husband on fur baby #2, but I’m no quitter!

I believe that the best ideas come from the strangest places; like when your sister-in-law says “You bake and I’ll decorate, it’s perfect!” Here we are less than a year later. We love what we do, are passionate about connecting with our customers and allowing us to play a part in their day.

I am excited to embark on this journey, and invite you to join us on our adventure, enjoy some cookies and watch us grow!

Mary
