The Inspiring Story of Gigi’s Cupcakes founder Gigi Butler

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.”
