Texas couple uses their corporate experience to open a Gigi’s Cupcakes bakery franchise
Owning a Gigi’s Cupcakes bakery franchise is a dream come true for entrepreneurs with a passion for business ownership, customer service and delicious desserts. There’s no reason to put off your dreams of being your own boss, setting your own schedule and doing work you thoroughly enjoy. Because Gigi’s ownership is accessible and affordable, now is a great time to franchise with us.
New franchise owner Michelle Muller had always dreamed of decorating cakes but considered that work to be far in her future. Not anymore. Michelle and her husband, David, are living their dreams now as they plan to open their brand-new Gigi’s Cupcakes franchise within the next few months.
“Growing up, I would watch cake decorators at bakeries, and I always would say, ‘I’m going to be a cake decorator,’” says Michelle. “And as I got older, out of college, I would say, ‘Whenever I retire, I’m going to decorate cakes.’ That is exactly what I’ve told people; ‘Whenever I retire, I’m going to do something that I love because I really enjoy baking, but I only get to do it around Thanksgiving and the Christmas holidays.’ Well, I’m not planning on retiring soon, but I do enjoy baking and decorating cakes, and I’m excited to shift my focus into something that I really and truly have a passion for and enjoy doing.”
Gigi’s Cupcakes bakery franchisees bring professional experiences to their business
David and Michelle are ideally suited for Gigi’s ownership. Besides her love of baking, the couple also has education and professional experiences that will benefit their business ownership. Both hold MBAs. She has worked in the foodservice industry in procurement and finance, and he is a marketing and pricing veteran.
“David often said: ‘We need a business. We need a business. We need something,’ and he said it for years,” Michelle says. “Finally, we thought about the background that we both have and what we would bring to the table, and we felt that we would be successful business partners. We decided that a franchise was the best and ideal way for us to do that. With a franchise, a lot of the effort is already in place, and it’s just a matter of following the marketing plan and the business strategies to be successful. After reviewing several concepts, Gigi’s was very attractive to us.”
The Mullers’ new Gigi’s Cupcakes bakery will be in the Cedar Hill area of Dallas, Texas, and their goal is to be fully operational by the spring of 2018. They are excited to bring the high quality and consistency of Gigi’s Cupcakes to their community.
“We are eager to have our own business and market a brand that we really and truly enjoy,” Michelle adds. “It’s rewarding to bring such a high-end, premier product as Gigi’s Cupcakes to our area. We have a lot of big plans for the store. We’re excited to partner with the southwest cities, local schools, churches, sports teams and companies in the area. We’ll be active in the community and participate in fundraising efforts to really and truly make a presence.”
