Meet Ron and Dawn Freeman, owners of Gigi's Cupcakes in Pickerington, Ohio. They also own Gigi's Cupcakes of Columbus (Polaris) and the Gigi's Cupcakes kiosk in Easton Mall. Dawn Freeman was born and raised in south Alabama and is a self-proclaimed "foodie." Ron is from Toronto, Ontario . "As a Canadian, I was raised to appreciate fine sweets!" says Ron. "We Canadians absolutely love our sweets!" The two have been married for 25 years and have two beautiful daughters.
Ron and Dawn were first introduced to Gigi's Cupcakes by mutual friends of the Butler family. THE Butler family...as in, Gina "Gigi" Butler, the founder of Gigi's Cupcakes.
"We love Columbus and were looking to bring a fun concept to our great city. Dawn and our two daughter have always loved baking together, so we decided to find out more about the delicious cupcakes from down South that we were hearing so much about."
They decided to travel west to visit Gigi's Cupcakes of Beavercreek, Ohio, near Dayton. A few bites of freshly baked cupcakes with homemade buttercream frosting, and a trip to Nashville was quickly scheduled to see the original store and meet Gigi.
"Cupcakes are fun and our cupcakes are delicious! As the owners of Gigi's in Columbus, we're privileged to be able to make others happy with our cupcakes every day."
