The people behind the “Gigi’s way” are what makes our company unique.
“Gigi’s Cupcakes has a strong, positive brand culture that helps drive our growth. Gigi’s Cupcakes blows any competition away. A lot of smaller bakeries can’t stand up to Gigi’s because they don’t have the same resources that a franchise brand does. This allows Gigi’s to enter into this niche marketplace and become the go-to business for cupcake-goers.”
– Ron Freeman, Multi-unit franchisee in Ohio
“Gigi’s Cupcakes set ourselves apart with an outstanding product and top-notch branding. It’s all in the swirl that’s made with lots of yummy frosting! The unique flavors with fun names make us stand out. Customers love our beautiful packaging and branding. The product is fun, and it tastes great and looks pretty. It’s easy to promote; you just have to get cupcakes in people’s mouths.”
– Amy Jones, Cincinnati, Ohio
“As long as you’re financially savvy, your Gigi’s Cupcakes business will make a profit. People love cupcakes! Cupcakes bring joy to people. I have yet to show up anywhere with cupcakes and have people frown. Every time we crack open a Gigi’s Cupcakes box, people’s eyes pop out and everybody’s delighted.”
– Marina Lee, Brier Creek (Raleigh), North Carolina
“Even though it’s hard work — cupcakes aren’t all glamour — owning a Gigi’s Cupcakes franchise has been a rewarding experience. Running this business has been a true life-changer. Our connections to our community have really shown us how blessed we are and how we can bless others through cupcakes. There’s something so special about seeing the joy that cake and frosting bring to people.”
