Our Story

Handcrafted desserts designed with a timeless twist!

Sweet Box’s beginnings stretch back to the 2011 Philadelphia food truck boom when owner Gretchen Fantini, a former court stenographer, eventually followed her family into the food and hospitality industry to become a baker.

A self-taught talent, Fantini bought a food truck and originally wanted to sell cake slices, but quickly realized cupcakes would work best. The truck took off and as Sweet Box’s popularity grew, Fantini decided to open a brick-and-mortar bakery in spring 2013.

At her shop located in Midtown Village, Fantini and her skilled team bake and prepare all desserts from scratch. Since its inception, her menu has expanded from cupcakes to include various cakes, brownies, bars, cookies, trifles, puddings, cookie sandwiches, and tarts.

Sweet Box, including our mobile truck, is always available for walk-in guests, as well as for delivery and catering, private parties, weddings and other events.
