December 03, 2015 // Franchising.com // Nashville, TN - Gigi's Cupcakes of Nashville is excited to announce an advanced redesign of the original Gigi's Cupcakes located at 1816 Broadway, Nashville, TN 37203. The retail location now has a fresh new look and product line, making it one of the most advanced Gigi's retail locations in the country.
This Gigi's location will now offer new menu items like breakfast quiche, muffins and Gigi's new ice cream line that features four proprietary cupcake flavors like Red Velvet, Midnight Magic and Wedding Cake. Gigi's signature frosting and pieces of her gourmet cupcakes will be mixed into the ice cream, served in waffle cones, and will soon be sold in take-home quarts. The local store will also provide Gigi's cheesecakes with 6-10 rotating flavors such as Classic, Turtle and the new Mocha holiday flavor featured during the month of December.
The advanced bakery prototype features upgrades such as refrigerated bakery cases, high-definition electronic menu boards and a larger seating capacity.
Because Christmas is Gigi's favorite time of year, Gigi's Cupcakes of Nashville will also offer a Gigi's Holiday Gift Box that can be shipped anywhere in the country. The gift box will include a 9 oz. bag of Gigi's Peppermint Bark, two freshly baked loaves of bread with flavors such as Pumpkin White Chocolate and Banana Nut Chocolate and two dozen of Gigi's homemade Ginger Snap Star Cookies. The perfect gift for the sweet lover in your family, the gift box will come wrapped in Gigi's signature holiday box with a note from Gigi herself. Only offered and made at the original Gigi's Cupcakes of Nashville, the Holiday Gift Box can be purchased nationwide for $35.00 with priority, two-day shipping by calling the local location at 615-342-0140.
"We are thrilled to continue the tradition of providing the absolute highest quality baked goods available on the market," said Gigi Butler, founder and culinary creator of Gigi's Cupcakes. "Nashville has always been so supportive of Gigi's Cupcakes, which was born right here in Music City in 2008. We're excited about the new additions at our original location where it all started. We look forward to the growth this could propel nationwide."
Unlike any other, Gigi's Cupcakes is known for their incredible variety of gourmet cupcakes with icing piled high and exquisite decorations.

Fans will have the opportunity to enjoy holiday themed desserts as well as Gigi's flavors such as Scarlett's Red Velvet, Chocolate Turtle, Wedding Cake, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Kentucky Bourbon Pie, Chocolate Torte, Midnight Magic, White Midnight Magic and more.
Gigi Butler moved to Nashville in 1994 from California to pursue a career in music. At 15 years old, Gigi started Gigi's Cleaning Company and continued that business once she arrived in Nashville. For fourteen years, Gigi supported her dream by cleaning houses during the day and singing late nights at the honky tonks on Broadway. While she loved music, she also had a passion for the culinary arts and baking. As years went by, she decided to take a chance on baking. She took a huge risk by opening a cupcake boutique in a high rent area just off of Music Row on Broadway in Nashville, TN on February 21, 2008 - not far from the bars she sang at. Gigi recalls the stress she was under with only $33 left in her bank account the day she opened the store. She had risked it all on an idea and she held her breath, hoping customers would love her creations.
Soon after opening, Gigi's Cupcakes became Nashville's delicacy dessert of choice and seven years later, there are nearly 100 franchise locations across the country in 23 states and one location in South Korea that opened in early 2015 - making Gigi's Cupcakes America's favorite cupcake and the largest cupcake franchise in the country.
"I am truly living the American Dream," says Gigi. "I am so blessed to be able to do what makes me happy and make a product that so many people enjoy."
