Tin Man Sweets is an Award-Winning Bakery located in Harmony, PA. They have been creating delicious treats since 2011 and moved into their first retail location in August of 2012. Their first shop was located in Evans City, PA and they were there for 5 years. During that time they won many awards including placing in the top 3 for Pittsburgh's Best Cupcake and Pittsburgh's Best Chocolate Chip Cookie. They have received accolades including Chef's Choice and People's Choice Awards at both the Glass Slipper Ball and Cocktails and Cuisines. In 2017, they moved to Main Street in Zelienople and shared a space with a Restaurant. While it was a great location, they needed room to expand.
In March 2020, they were set to reopen their brand new location in Creekside Plaza. Then the pandemic hit. They had to put their dream on hold for just a little longer. They finally opened their brand new retail location In May of 2020.

A lot of people ask where we came up with our name. It’s a cute story :). When we were in the beginning stages of creating our business, we were brainstorming about our name. At the time, our niece was very young and couldn’t say, “Uncle Justin”, so Justin was lovingly referred to as, “Uncle Tin.” Twelve years later, he is still called, “Uncle Tin”.
The idea of Tin Man Sweets started when Justin baked Christmas Cookies with his grandma, thirty years ago. So, when creating his own bakery business, it made sense that it would be named after him. Tin Man Sweets, the baker with heart.
