the story of papabubble’s beginnings is a fairy tale of sorts. leaving behind successful careers in architecture and communications, dominik and marieken headed to barcelona in 2003 on what was intended to be a little break from reality. quite unexpectedly they encountered the world of candy in the form of two Australian friends who had opened the very first papabubble. dominik and marieken had caught the candy bug. so much so that in 2005, with the blessing of the founders and buoyed along by having won the marie claire starters award in the previous year, they brought a long time dream to fruition and opened a papabubble in amsterdam.
