The Sweet Tooth 10th Anniversary

A Marine City business, The Sweet Tooth, celebrated its 10th anniversary this week, and it all started in 2009 with a layoff.

Seventh generation Marine City resident Todd May found himself without a job in 2009 and made the decision to open The Sweet Tooth. The first storefront for the business was only 1,000 square feet (including storage) according to May. The Sweet Tooth has now moved to a location more than double the size, right across the road from the original space in Downtown Marine City.

The sweet shop is known for its handmade items like clusters and truffles, the buy-in bulk wall, and unique candy offerings, that originate as far back as the late 1800s.

Todd credits the store’s success to the recent growth of Downtown Marine City as well as loyal customers he has served throughout the years. Presently, The Sweet Tooth is working on a new line of cookies as well as their new treat, the Chocolate High Heel.

Take a look inside the store and hear more about Todd’s story in this feature.
