Cupcake Charlie’s is a "dream-come-true" business that we first opened in the Summer of 2008 on Cape Cod. We worked together in Real Estate prior to opening our successful and lucrative gourmet cupcake business. When the housing market took a turn for the worse, we saw an opportunity to reinvent ourselves. We have always worked great together as a team and are entrepreneurs at heart! Following our dreams of baking quality products and deciding to open our own bakery business, was a very easy decision for us. We are both self-taught bakers and our belief is, that if you have a passion for something and you work hard, good things will happen and success will come knocking at your door!
Cupcake Charlie’s highly reputable brand recognition will instantly propel you above the competition. In the Spring of 2013 we were featured in the Specialty Retail Report Magazine solidifying our place within the Specialty Foods Category. With the use of our trademarked logo, popular cupcake characters, and unique tag-line - Life is Short . . . Eat a Cupcake, you will have more to share with your customers than just great cupcakes! Our experience in brand building and a well defined model for success will give you all the tools necessary to move closer to the success and career freedom you have been dreaming of.
As a team, we are committed to focusing on the quality and consistency of all of our cupcake products. We have used the expanding niche market to our advantage and have happily risen above the rest with our unique recipes and proprietary techniques. Our team of dedicated professionals have worked very hard to maintain a strong branded presence and we are ready and eager to share all of the benefits with you!
Are you looking for the opportunity to own a business and create your own success? You can enjoy workplace happiness by establishing career freedom when you become your own boss!
Opening a Cupcake Charlie’s franchise may be the perfect fit for you. Cupcake Charlie’s gourmet cupcakes are baked fresh daily in a fun, open-kitchen, family friendly environment. Your customers will fall instantly in love with our sweet and tempting aromas! We have a true passion for baking, we pride ourselves in our "above and beyond" customer service approach and our time-tested expertise and quality products have won us numerous accolades, including the title of “New England’s Best Cupcakes”!
Today, our growing business and unparalleled product quality, help us to stand above the rest! We are both eager and excited to continue to grow the strength of our brand and spread the Cupcake Charlie's love nationwide!
To be a successful Cupcake Charlie's franchisee, you should have an affinity for baking, a passion for business ownership, a need to succeed, and of course, a love for spreading happiness with delicious, sweet treats! Business or management experience will certainly be beneficial when owning and running your Cupcake Charlie’s franchise, but is not a requirement for ownership.
We have been baking and operating this business for 6 years now, and we, along with our dedicated staff, will provide you with extensive training that will cover everything you need to know to start, open, and run a successful Cupcake Charlie's franchise. Although no official culinary background is necessary, a strong work ethic and a little cupcake commitment will truly help you thrive!
The initial investment for the franchise will vary for every franchisee based on the location, the size and condition of your leased space, lease terms, contractor pricing in your area, and several other variables within your strategic area’s market. Based on our experience, you should be prepared to invest a minimum of approximately $199,250. This amount includes your one-time franchise fee and can be all cash, or a combination of cash, credit and financing.
We are looking for like-minded and committed individuals who are ready to be owner operators of their Cupcake Charlie's franchise. Our proven successful business model encourages franchisees to have a committed, in-shop, hands-on approach. We are looking for partners that are willing to work hard and do what it takes to meet with success. Experiencing the day to day operations, the daily demands of the industry, leading your new staff by example, and managing all aspects of the business are the steps necessary to grow and sustain your business. These ideals will help you to nurture an efficient, thriving, trustworthy work environment for you and your staff. In our experience, we have found that this dedication and commitment to your new business can pay-off beyond your dreams. Our four privately owned shops are a true testament to this!
