Our Story

IN THE EARLY 1800S, A FIREHALL OPENED IN THE CENTRE OF THE VILLAGE OF UNIONVILLE, TO MEET THE NEEDS OF A GROWING COMMUNITY.  IN JUNE OF 2009, THE OLD FIREHALL CONFECTIONERY WAS ESTABLISHED IN THE HISTORIC BUILDING, MEETING SWEETER NEEDS.  IN MAY OF 2018, ICONIC KLEINBURG RECEIVED A BOUTIQUE LOCATION OF ITS OWN.

WITH AN OPEN CONCEPT KITCHEN IN THE FLAGSHIP STORE, THE OLD FIREHALL CONFECTIONERY PRODUCES ARTISANAL CONFECTIONS, CHOCOLATES, PASTRIES, GLUTEN SENSITIVE, PEANUT FREE,  SUGAR FREE, AND VEGAN OPTIONS IN A CONTEMPORARY ENVIRONMENT, WITH A NOD TO THE CLASSIC CHARM OF DAYS GONE BY.   A STRONG COMMITMENT TO QUALITY INGREDIENTS AND AN OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE HAS RESULTED IN MANY PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS.

CO OWNERS, KIMBERLY MURPHY AND NATASHA USHER, LONG TIME BFFS AND DANCE MOMS, BOTH LEFT THEIR CAREERS, FUELLED BY A SHARED  DREAM AND GLASSES OF PROSECCO.  IN THE PURSUIT OF A SWEETER LIFE, BOTH WOMEN SHARE A VISION AND A LOVE OF FINE CHOCOLATE AND A COMMITMENT TO  GIVE TO THOSE IN NEED.  CHARITABLE PARTNERS INCLUDE HAND OVER HAND, THE SHANIA TWAIN BREAKFAST PROGRAM, MARKHAM STOUFFVILLE HOSPITAL AND 360 KIDS.

AS A STAPLE IN BOTH PICTURESQUE VILLAGES, THE OLD FIREHALL CONFECTIONERY PROVIDES A HAVEN FOR GUESTS TO ENJOY THE SWEET LIFE.    WE WOULD BE HONOURED TO BE A PART OF YOUR MEMORABLE MOMENTS.
