Beth and Matt Farrer, Owners
Beth’s passion for baking is widely known to her friends and family. Her Brother, David, introduced her to the original Gigi’s Cupcakes shortly after he moved to Nashville. It was LOVE at first bite and Beth became obsessed. Soon that obsession was shared with fiancé Matt and they would travel around from Gigi’s to Gigi’s learning all of the flavors.
After getting the chance to retire early from the corporate world, Beth announced to her now husband Matt that she was going to bring Gigi’s Cupcakes to Northern Kentucky. And that’s just what she did!
Now Beth is known as the “Cupcake Lady” and folks take pictures with Rosie, the cupcake car! It’s a great feeling to have folks wave and show their Gigi’s boxes as they pass by on the road! Everyone loves Gigi’s!!
As Beth and Matt established Gigi’s into the Florence area, it became increasingly important to pay it forward all the blessings that cupcakes have brought to their lives. They now have a few favorite charities, like the Mary Rose Soup Kitchen and Life Line Ministries that they donate to on a regular basis just to share gourmet cupcakes with others less fortunate. They also share cupcakes as thank you gifts and special treats for area Police Officers and Firefighters. But the biggest honor by far is their involvement in the Royal Prom- an event that gives folks from 14-101 with disabilities the opportunity to attend a prom where they get made over, wear formal attire and where everyone is crowned King and Queen for the night. And get Gigi’s Cupcakes of course!
Beth recently received her Woman Owned Business Certification through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council and has also been approved by the Better Business Bureau. And the team won 2014’s Best Cupcake by Northern KY Magazine.
The love of Gigi’s Cupcakes is still as strong today for Beth & Matt as it was when they were first introduced to them. And sharing that love with their hometown remains a high priority just as providing great customer service and fantastic gourmet cupcakes every day.
