We have a great show today.  We are meeting with Gigi Butler, the founder of Gigi’s Cupcakes.  People across the country know Gigi from her appearance on “Undercover Boss” on CBS, and her journey is the American Dream come true.

Soon after opening, Gigi’s Cupcakes became a Nashville delicacy dessert of choice and now, nine years later, it has expanded to more than 100 locations across 24 states…making Gigi’s the largest cupcake franchise in the country!

Moving to Nashville in 1994 from California to pursue a career in music at 15-years old, Gigi supported her dream by cleaning houses during the day and singing in honky tonks at night. While she loved music, she also had a passion for baking. As the years went by, she decided to take a chance on her cooking talents instead of her voice. She took a huge risk and opened a cupcake boutique in a high rent area just off Music Row in Nashville in Feb of 2008- not far from the bars where she sang. Soon after opening, Gigi’s Cupcakes became a Nashville delicacy dessert of choice and now, nine years later, it has expanded to more than 100 locations across 24 states….making Gigi’s the largest cupcake franchise in the country!
