Although Clairesquares officially opened for business in 2006, Claire first began making her delectable treats at age 12. Growing up in County Cork, Ireland, Claire took inspiration from her mother’s recipe books and set out experimenting with fudge, butterscotch, toffee, and caramel. Her best-loved endeavor was the caramel square, a mouthwatering combination of shortbread, caramel and chocolate. A budding entrepreneur, Claire tried her hand selling the squares at school. Before long, her classmates were addicted and she sold out every week. Years later and miles away in San Francisco, Claire felt homesick for her native Ireland and turned to the stove. She whipped up a batch of those same buttery, Irish treats for her friends. Much to Claire’s delight, they elicited the same wondrous reaction as years past. Itching for a career change from environmental science and encouraged by her friends’ enthusiasm (and constant harassment for just one more square), Claire decided to sell her Irish treats in the States, and Clairesquares was born!
