Who We Are
Sweet Connections is a local family-owned business established in 2008 in the heart of San Bruno Downtown.
Our vision is to provide an inviting and safe family-friendly environment for our guests to come together for “sweet” conversations.
In addition to private event rentals, we sponsor family-friendly public events for the community.
Part of why we decided to open Sweet Connections was to use our shop to give back to our local San Bruno community. Every year, since June 2009, we have hosted and sponsored a summer literacy program for local elementary students called Boost. Boost is an academic literacy-centered program to give children with remedial reading skills in the San Bruno public schools and surrounding areas a “boost” to support increased literacy. Boost focuses on the primary areas of reading, phoneme segmentation, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.
In 2009, we started with fifteen 1st thru 3rd grade students from Belle Air Elementary. In 2013, we had 35 students from Belle Air and John Muir Elementary!
