Happy 10th Anniversary to us!
Australia Day marks 10 years for Lollyworld, our little lolly shop in Lawnton. That’s quite an exciting thought to know what we have achieved in a decade, and are still going strong. There have been times where we thought it may not go the distance because any business can be brutal. There have been many lolly shops pop up all over the place, stores and online. Some we have watched do well while others disappear before people knew they were even there. The 2011 floods wiped out our local bridge, walk in trade was all but gone. Railway closures, a new over pass taking traffic away made it very quiet. About a dozen stores around our local shops have come and gone. It’s not for the faint of heart, like any business, you have to have a heart of steel and a head of sharp mechanics, to be constantly aware of all that goes on and to stay focused.
Our business has evolved from when it started in 2005, under the house, as we made small mixed lolly bags we would sticker for parties, to around Australia corporate sales. In the last two weeks alone, over 200kgs chocolate gold coins have gone out just for Chinese New Year celebrations. Valentines Day is around the corner, Easter and Mothers Day. The wheels keep turning. We have you to thank for that. See the need, fill the need, in the words of Bigweld, and that is what we will continue to do.
Happy 10th Anniversary Lollyworld!
