    Thank you so much for asking! Unfortunately, we aren't hiring right now. In fact, our staff has been laid off due to the pandemic. Hopefully, we'll be bringing folks back soon! When we do hire again, we'll post it here, on our email list and on our social media channels. Follow us there for updates!

    I noticed this listing dates back to last year and before I submitted an application I wanted to be sure that the Sugar Shop was still hiring.

    Thank you!
