Gigi's Now baking in Orlando!

Gigi's Now baking in Orlando!

Lee St. John knows what it's like to bring a Gigi's Cupcakes to a community. He and his sister, Judy Kenney opened Gigi's Cupcakes in Marietta, Georgia a few years ago. This Spring, Lee got to experience the fun and smiles of a grand opening all over again as he opened Gigi's Cupcakes' first Orlando, Florida location.

"We had an absolutely amazing week!" says Lee.  "Every day in this business you get to make someone smile with a beautifully decorated and delicious homemade cupcake. But, there's something extra special about a grand opening!  Kids were running around eating minis, there were faces being painted everywhere you looked, and we even got the Orlando Magic involved! Orlando Magic cheerleaders decorated cupcakes and signed pictures with kids throughout the day.

"One of the best things about our grand opening was that cupcake fans in Orlando got to meet Gigi," added St. John. "Having Gigi at our store was special, because people love to hear her story.  She cleaned offices during the day, baked cupcakes at night and finally just said 'I'm going to go for it' " and that's just what she did.  And we're glad she did!"

Gigi's Cupcakes of Orlando is located at: 2562 East Colonial Drive just west of Colonial Town Center.
