Who is Alejandro Siniawski and why did he decide to create Papabubble?
Alejandro is a specialist in sweets, because he has worked for nearly all major companies in the confectionery industry: Cadbury, Chupa Chups, Arcor, Haribo.
Papabubble had already been set up, but it was just a craft-sweet shop. I loved the hand-made concept and decided to take it abroad. Sure-fire results
Can you tell us a little bit about the story behind Papabubble? How did it all start?
Eight years ago, two Australians brought the idea to Barcelona and opened up a small shop on Carrer Ample. They were doing the same thing in Melbourne… Alejandro Siniawski took over Papabubble in mid-2008, and after taking a year off to understand the craftwork business, he began an internationalisation process that has already been set in motion in 2013.
What do you think is the recipe for success of Papabubble?
A show that is one-of-a-kind in the world, a return to all things artisan, and a product of exceptionally high quality.
What important lessons have you learned from your experience with Papabubble?
Craftwork sells. And to make it happen, we have to be consistent with this craftsmanship, and be able to prove it.
That you sometimes need to let your instincts and hunches guide you when something seems right, and that you always need to have your antennas well focused.
Any tips for those entrepreneurs who are daring to innovate and create in times like these?
Letting your instincts be your guide is a good thing… As long as you have your feet firmly on the ground!
Search for and keep searching for openings in the market and focus on them 100%, not 99%. Throw all your energy into the project and devote tons of enthusiasm to it, effort and creativity.
To finish, what is People For The Future for you?
A forum for sharing experiences with people who are on the same wavelength as I am. And a lighthouse to guide sailors!
