From a stay-at-home mom with a sweet tooth and big ambitions to a well known confectionary brand!

Mario Toneguzzi |

Kathy Leskow, Founder of Confetti Sweets, was a stay-at-home mom with a sweet tooth and big ambitions. She started off baking cookies in her home kitchen and selling them at local farmer’s markets. In 2014, Kathy secured a storefront for Confetti Sweets in Sherwood Park and now employs a team of 25. Kathy has expanded her reach in Alberta and now sells her cookie mix at grocery stores throughout the province. During the pandemic, she branched out and founded Confetti Collective where they sell curated local food from small producers. Kathy has a commerce degree from the University of Lethbridge with a major in marketing and has experience in the event planning and hospitality industries. She is no longer found scooping cookie dough and baking, but working on growing the business and seizing all opportunities that come her way.
