Gigi’s Cupcakes holds grand opening in Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Another new dessert business has opened up in Columbus.

Gigi's Cupcakes expanded their franchise and held their grand opening celebration earlier today.

The interest in bringing a Gigi's Cupcakes franchise to Columbus began when owners Patrick and Jennifer Cooper realized there were customers traveling from the area to their Auburn stores just for Gigi's Cupcakes.

"Cupcakes are awesome. It's a love we have," said owner Jennifer Cooper. "Two stores in Auburn, one in Montgomery and we said Columbus needs Gigi's. So here we are."

Construction had been continuing at Gigi's all summer. Those looking to satisfy their sweet tooth can find Gigi's at 2511-B Airport Thruway.
