Hope Sweet Hope

We are Sturbridge, MA’s premier candy store since 2015.  Our business is proud to provide vocational opportunities for the Center of Hope Foundations’ members, who are individuals with disabilities and/or disabling circumstances, who want to work productively within their communities.  At COH, we believe that anyone who wants to work, should be given the opportunity to do so, as work is an important part of life.  Work helps individuals gain autonomy and self-direction.   Individuals are empowered to explore their strengths, desires, work skills and vocational abilities through a comprehensive evaluation program that offers testing to identify strengths, needs interest, goals and opportunities.

In addition, we have quite a sweet tooth, and love to share our favorite selections of (a wide variety of) candies and treats with those in and around Sturbridge, MA.

Our hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm, and  Sunday 12pm to 6pm.
