Favorite Gigi's Cupcake:
Dee - Wedding Cake
Rich - Triple Chocolate Torte
Mary - Chocolate Turtle
Dee had always dreamed of opening a business and Rich, experienced at running several large companies, was very supportive of the idea. Mary loved to bake and decorate and had built quite a following so when the three came together, Gigi’s was the perfect fit!
Dee and Rich first tasted Gigi’s cupcakes at the wedding of their niece (also family to Indy franchise owners, Nick and Lory Papas). It was love at first sight and bite for Dee!
The inspiring story of Gigi along with the spirit of happiness felt when visiting other stores motivated us to open Gigi’s in our community of South Bend/Granger.
Gigi’s is a happy place and we truly believe when our customers walk through our door they feel that joy! Customer service is our #1 priority along with offering the highest quality product possible! We can’t say enough about our exceptional staff and the fun we have! Don’t be surprised to be greeted with a BIG smile and a “Welcome to Gigi’s” from a very sincere customer service staff member when you visit Gigi’s of Granger! Our goal is to brighten each customer’s day!
It is so fun to work with our customers in the planning of birthday parties, weddings, corporate events, graduations, and other special occasions. I mean how can you not be happy and enjoy your work when you are decorating a cupcake that will be used for a marriage proposal?
It has been our privilege to partner with the University of Notre Dame in our first year of business! You will find Gigi’s at the University of Notre Dame stadium during football season, the Joyce Center for basketball, and the Compton Family Ice Arena for all hockey games.
Giving back to our community is very important to us. We have partnered with our nationally acclaimed Center for the Homeless by donating 10% of Monday sales every other month, as well as participating in many local charities such as the YMCA, the Boys and Girls Club, our local Ronald McDonald organization, Relay for Life, Christmas Commandos, and many, many, more. We look forward to serving our Michiana community for many years to come by offering these fun flavored, gourmet cupcakes and growing number of newer items such as cookies, breads,, custom cakes, and cheesecakes to make your celebrations that much sweeter!
