Gigi’s Cupcakes is excited to announce the opening of its newest store location in East Lansing, MI. Gigi’s Cupcakes, originally founded by culinary creator Gigi Butler, opened their doors for business this week. The new store is located at 1020 Trowbridge Road in the Trowbridge Village Shopping Center.
Gigi’s Cupcakes of East Lansing welcomed community members for Friends & Family night on Sunday, April 10 and a VIP Celebration on Monday, April 11 and officially opened for business on April 12.
Gigi’s Cupcakes of East Lansing is locally owned and operated by Gina Farhat. Growing up in East Lansing, Gina was the second child of seven siblings. Her family often shared quality time in the kitchen cooking and baking together. After graduating with an Economics degree from Albion College, Gina became a CPA and has lived in the Lansing area for years. She was first introduced to Gigi’s Cupcakes in 2015 when watching the hit TV show Undercover Boss that featured Gigi Butler as she went undercover in various store locations. Farhat fell in love with the store design, the unique packaging and the many signature flavors. She was immediately drawn to the idea of opening her own store in East Lansing.
“I’m very excited to bring Gigi’s Cupcakes to the greater Lansing area,” said Gina. “I look forward to being part of something new and special as well as bringing beautiful, delicious Gigi’s treats to the community where I grew up.”
The East Lansing location is planning a grand opening celebration in the weeks ahead where founder Gigi Butler will be on hand to meet residents.
“We love our location in East Lansing, and I know area residents are going to really enjoy having a Gigi’s Cupcakes in their neighborhood,” said Gigi Butler. “I can’t wait to get to know the community better and help them celebrate all of their special occasions.”
The new location is open Monday through Saturday from 9am to 8pm and Sunday from 11am to 6pm.
