Las Vegas-based Sugar Factory, which specializes in “couture pops” and 60-ounce cocktails in goblets, is looking to open its first D.C. location on the first floor of the train station by Friday, Scott Miller, a partner with the company, said yesterday. But work to prepare the store for its debut might make Monday its first day of business, he said.
“We’re excited,” Miller said. “We think it’s a great demographic [in D.C.] for the concept.”

The store is expected to have 16 seats, but will hold about 30 people. It is slated to be open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
In August 2013, Sugar Factory announced that it would bring a location to Union Station.
“All of our sweet fans can grab our special treats on the go when they are traveling for work or pleasure,” Sugar Factory said in the announcement. “One-of-a-kind candy confections have been created for our new D.C. home that include a signature All-American Couture Pop and White House-inspired gummies.”
