If you’re all about sweets, you’ll love this post! Two weeks ago, the popular cupcake shop, Gigi’s Cupcakes, opened up their first store in Illinois, just north of Chicago in the suburb of Wilmette. I had the opportunity to visit before their grand opening to not only have my fill of cupcakes, but to meet Gigi herself!
Gigi’s Cupcakes was all started by a wonderful woman,Gina Butler. Her story is a remarkable one and so inspirational! You can read it here. I also loved watching her on the tv show, Undercover Boss, where she disguised herself and worked a few jobs within her company along side employees. Through that experience, she learned not only about the technical work but the people behind her brand. Now, to see her in person and spend some time at her new store was such a treat!
