Hey Athens, Georgia cupcake lovers!
As the owner of two Gigi's Cupcakes stores in Athens, Georgia, I am so delighted to share my favorite cupcakes with you! After spending five years living in the middle of Georgia Bulldog country, I have fallen in love with this exciting community, and I wanted to bring something equally exciting and fun to our neighborhood. Gigi's uniquely decorated cupcakes are made fresh daily and since variety is the spice of life, we keep things interesting with over 80 incredible flavor varieties offered throughout the year!
Before finding Gigi’s Cupcakes, I spent my entire career in the healthcare industry looking after the health and well being of others. I decided I wanted to try something different, and as a devoted cupcake fan, I began looking into opening a cupcake shop of my own. While on a hockey trip to Huntsville, Alabama with my family, I stumbled across the Gigi’s Cupcakes website and was intrigued, but then fate stepped in and took things one step farther.
We had some free time before the first game and decided to stop by the mall to do some window-shopping, and right in front of us was a table display of Gigi’s cupcakes from a recently opened store nearby. Mesmerized by what we had just seen, we took a trip to the store the very next day and we were hooked! After sitting on the idea for over a year, I finally decided to make my dream a reality.
My goal as the owner of Gigi's Cupcakes in Athens, is to bring everyone happiness through cupcakes. Whether giving them or receiving them – they are bound to make you smile! I hope that you will come by and visit us, to share your smiles and to let us be a part of your special occasions and celebrations!

Gigi's of Georgia raises $4200 for cancer research
Gigi's says their cupcakes are baked with love, and during Childhood Awareness Month, they proved it.
Every Saturday in September, each Georgia Gigi's location baked special "Gold Ribbon" cupcakes, and all proceeds from the sale of those cupcakes were donated to CURE Childhood Cancer. Customers who purchased these cupcakes were entered into a drawing each week for an autographed baseball signed by 2014 Hall of Fame inductee and former Atlanta Braves pitcher, Tom Glavine. At the end of the month, customers were entered to win an autographed photo of Glavine.
"Thanks to the enthusiastic support of our fans, Gigi's gave away 32 baseballs, eight photos, and, more importantly, raised $4,200.00 to help fund childhood cancer research! ," said Deena Coughlin, owner of Gigi's at The Forum.
The check was presented today to Kristin Connor, Executive Director of CURE, by Coughlin (owner of Gigi’s at The Forum) and Judy Kenney (owner of Gigi’s Marietta/Kennesaw). Not pictured were participating owners Sarah Harberts (Buckhead/Peachtree City), Bobbi Zastre (Athens), Gil Lyons (Sandy Springs), and Jennifer Cooper (Columbus).
