Business Break- Gigi's Cupcakes

Posted: Updated:

Columbus, GA  Gigi's Cupcakes is proud to announce the expansion of their franchise to Columbus, GA  Local franchise owners, Patrick and Jennifer Cooper,  will open the doors of Gigi's Cupcakes at 2511-B Airport Thurway and will be officially kicking off their Grand Opening celebration on Friday August 3rd at 10:00 AM ET.  Columbus Ga residents are invited to come see what the "swirl" is about and experience the Gigi's cupcake phenomena first hand!

 

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

 

"We cannot  wait to open Gigi's Cupcakes in Columbus!  Words cannot

express how grateful we are for the outpouring of love and support we

have already received from the community. The Columbus market has

always been on our radar and when the opportunity presented itself we

just couldn't pass it up!" Jennifer Cooper

Gigi learned her cupcake craft at an early age, being taught unique family recipes dating back to great, great aunts, who were bakery owners in Oklahoma.  As an adult, Gigi felt that baking was becoming a lost art that needed to be resurrected.  Even though people rarely have time to bake from scratch, they still enjoy eating delicious home baked goods, especially ones that remind them of their childhood – like a cupcake.  Gigi opened her first cupcake boutique in Nashville in 2008, immediately found sweet success and quickly became Nashville's delicacy dessert of choice throughout the city.  Later the same year, she opened her second store location in Franklin, TN.  With two flagship stores in place, Gigi began to franchise the business and her success continues as she now opens multiple franchise locations across the United States. 

"I learned to cook standing on a stool watching and measuring ingredients beside my mother and grandmother," Gigi says of her early childhood.  "We're so excited to be expanding and opening new locations in various markets for residents to taste the sweet life… one cupcake at a time."
