Gigi Butler - Gigi's Cupcakes

Gigi Butler - Gigi's Cupcakes

In 2015, Gigi Butler was featured on an episode of Undercover Boss, and most recently, Gigi is one of the featured “inspirational” stories in Shark Tank’s Daymond John’s new book, The Power of Broke. With 11 pages dedicated to her fascinating story, Daymond describes Gigi’s relentless determination and drive to be a successful female entrepreneur.  

In short, Gigi’s success story is truly an “American Dream” of a housekeeper turned CEO practically overnight. Gigi is a single mother, trying to balance the demands of raising a young daughter while running a multi-million dollar company. As incredible as her baked goods are, Gigi’s personal story and the road she traveled to becoming the “Culinary Queen of Baking,” is even more remarkable. After years of trying to make it in the music industry at night and cleaning during the day, she decided to focus her efforts on her passion for baking, a lost art in her eyes. With only $33 left to her name, she opened up her first bakery shop in Nashville, TN in 2008 and held her breath. Eight years later, Gigi’s Cupcakes is now the largest cupcake franchise in the country with over 100 locations and counting. Gigi's Cupcakes features over 300 rotating flavors including sugar free and gluten free options in locations nationwide.  

Gigi Butler has enjoyed sharing her inspirational story with others as she is living her own American Dream.  The entrepreneur and founder of Gigi’s Cupcakes continually speaks to various business groups, civic organizations, conventions/corporate meetings and church functions.

Gigi admits her story of success is full of sweet irony and she is light hearted in sharing her personal journey and life lessons she’s learned along the way.  Gigi talks about how she started a cleaning business at a young age, moved to Nashville to follow her dreams of becoming the next country music star and how failure motivated her to explore her other passion in order to fulfill her destiny of becoming a culinary craftsman.

Gigi is among an elite group of women that have founded national companies in America.  Her journey to become a leading female entrepreneur began many years before the first Gigi’s Cupcakes opened its doors.  Gigi’s vision is to serve, inspire and give back to others as she continues to build her personal brand.
