How this chain started is a true rag to riches story. Gina ‘Gigi’ Butler had always had strong ties with baking, learning secret family recipes while growing up in California. However, she also had another passion, music. At a young age she moved to Nashville to pursue this dream. She worked at her own cleaning company during the day and would perform during the evening.
After ten years of trying to break into the scene Gigi was cleaning a house one day when her brother phoned her. He told her that he was in New York and he had just waited over two hours to buy a cupcake and to top it all off they were nowhere near as good as hers or his mom’s ones.
This phone call sealed the deal for Gigi and she began approaching banks for loans, all of whom refused her. She ended up taking a huge risk and taking out a huge sum of money on personal credit cards to set up her first store. In 2008, with $33 left in her pocket, Gigi opened the first location in Nashville, Tennessee.
This proved to be the best decision of her life as a mere 8 years later there are over 100 franchised locations across the US with plans to continue the brands expansion. Gigis Cupcakes has set themselves apart from other cupcake chains by dedicating themselves to consistently freshly baked, delicious products and innovative flavors, with absolutely no shortcuts.
All of the brands locations are what you can imagine a cupcake would look like in building form. They are decorated with delightful, pastel colors that mimic the ‘Gigi’ frosting, and the restaurants’ soft lighting illuminates the glorious rows of perfectly baked cupcakes. They have cute, comfortable table and chairs, or you can always grab your goods on the go. If you need some cupcakes or one of their cakes for a special event, then you can pre-order what you need and collect it at a time to suit you.
They have a great choice of products to suit every occasion. Alongside their namesake item, they also offer: gluten-free products, mini selection, cheesecakes and cakes. If you need a few, you can always grab a special assortment of twelve, although their mini selection also has the option to choose twelve just in a more manageable bite.
Their cupcakes come in an absolutely amazing array of innovative flavors: Chocolate Salted Caramel, Lemonberry, Nordini’s Coconut Caramel, Raspberry Buckle, Strawberry Shortcake and White Midnight Magic, just to name a few. Their gluten-free flavors are just as fanciful: Chocolate Peanut Butter and Strawberries and Cream being two prime examples.
