The Sugar Factory is not just your average restaurant with amazing drinks and desserts. The restaurant has made confections part of their famous culture and has essentially turned sweets into the latest designer accessory.
The Sugar Factory’s signature Couture Pop has even hit the red carpets in the presence of celebrities at major events in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, and Las Vegas. From the beginning, they focused on celebrity fans and instagrammable creation as part of their brand. And they have delivered a fun and amazing experience.
Let’s dig in…
History of the Sugar Factory
The founder of the Sugar Factory is Charissa Davidovici who took the entire world by surprise in 2009 when she together with her family opened the first Sugar Factory in Las Vegas. She came up with the idea while discussing candy at the dinner table and that led to the development of the world famous Couture Pop.
A year later they welcomed the first flagship location on the Las Vegas Strip at the Mirage Hotel. It was evident from the beginning that the restaurant was going to be a hit. The restaurant is not just a regular restaurant – it has an attached candy store, a menu full of fun, colorful and of course “instagrammable” cocktails, colorful drinks in goblets, couture lollipops and an extensive dessert menu.

As the Sugar Factory gradually grew over the years, its fan base increased too. In 2016, Sugar Factory was named “The Most Instagrammed Restaurant in the US.” The Sugar Factory has over 22 locations worldwide and according to Davidovici, the future looks bright with other restaurant concepts arising from this famous brand.
