Sugar Factory is a brand of coffee, tea and ice cream bars owned by the beverage company Nestle.
Nestle says it has more than 4 million stores in the US, and more than 100 in Australia.
It was founded in 1886 and is owned by Nestle Group PLC.
The company has about 1,000 stores in Australia, where it is also owned by Sysco Holdings PLC, and in New Zealand.
It’s been growing rapidly, but it’s struggled to stay competitive in recent years, and has struggled to meet rising demand for its products.
Nestlé says it sells about 50 million items a year.
The latest data from Nielsen shows that, in the first quarter of this year, the number of products with sales of $50,000 or more in the past 12 months grew by 13 per cent.
This year, it is predicted to grow by 17 per cent in the same period.
Sales of $25,000-50,001 a year in the three months to March this year were up by 17.4 per cent on the same quarter last year.
Nestles revenues rose by 4 per cent to $4.7 billion in the last 12 months, and by 6 per cent the year before.
Its profit margins were also up, rising from 4.3 per cent last year to 5.4 in the year to March.
Sales in Australia rose 11 per cent over the same year to $7.4 billion.
Nestled has been hit hard by a global economic downturn, and many consumers have seen their spending on food and other goods drop.
Sales fell in Australia by 4.2 per cent from the year prior, and were down 11.2 percent on the year, according to Nielsen.
This is likely to have contributed to the recent decline in sales of the brands in Australia and in the world.
Nestlays revenue in Australia has fallen by almost 20 per cent since 2012, and the company has had to raise taxes, which has been the biggest challenge.
The Australian Tax Office said it was reviewing whether the tax changes were justified.
The ABC has contacted Nestlé for comment.
