As you open the doors to Sweet Serendipity, a sweet aroma is sure to please the senses.  The aroma comes from the shop’s kitchen, where Bev Adam, a self-taught chocolatier, and her staff are busily preparing the sweet treats you will find in the glass-encased candy counter at the front of the store.  Arranged on the trays inside is a selection of dark, milk and white chocolate, truffles; candy cups filled with either peanut butter, caramel, nuts or coconut; graham crackers; Rice Krispie® Treats; pretzels; and toffee.  Cake balls and decadent cakes can be found in the case next to the candy. 

Beyond the selection of sweet delights, the store sells home decor, including ornaments, handcrafted wreaths, inspirational gifts, and Texas-made gourmet foods.  They also create custom gift baskets to meet each customer’s needs. 

Inspired by her father’s favorite candy, peanut clusters, she ventured into the candy making business.  It all started in 1997 in Tomball, Texas, where she worked as an operating room nurse.   She and a co-worker went into business together offering handmade candy, cakes, cookies and specialty gift baskets for customers.  Shortly after their venture began, her business partner left.  Bev continued to grow the business.

In 2005, she and her husband, Don, purchased a historic building on the square in Georgetown, Texas.  With the help of her family, she oversaw the building’s renovation, bringing it to its current charm.  The shop is a true family-owned business.  Her oldest son, Scott, helps manage the store.  Bev’s 98 year-old mother, Elizabeth, known to many as “Grandma”, enjoys spending her days making candy in the shop’s kitchen.  During the holidays or city festivals, several more family members help the business run smoothly.   Sweet Serendipity strives to make everyone’s holidays and experiences exceptional.
