New Kupcakes on the Block
The Kupcake Factory is celebrating the opening of its fifth shop at 537 Toulouse Street in the French Quarter with a grand opening event. The public can enjoy complimentary sweets, unique incentives, and the opportunity to give back to the community throughout the weekend of November 15-16.
On Friday, Nov. 15, the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce, the French Quarter Business Association, and the New Orleans Concierge Association will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11:30 a.m. to kick off the Grand Opening festivities. The festivities will continue on Saturday, Nov. 16, with free mini cupcakes, a “Buy 5, Get 1 Free” deal, and a $5 gift certificate for the first five customers that day. Attendees can sign up for a chance to win t-shirts, a dozen mini cupcakes, and a $50 gift credit towards a specialty cake purchase. The Kupcake Factory’s new fall varieties, as well as eight ice cream flavors from the New Orleans Ice Cream Company, will be available for sampling.
With Thanksgiving approaching, The Kupcake Factory has teamed together with Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana to help augment its holiday efforts. For their generosity, each customer who brings in non-perishable food items will receive a free cupcake. Donations will be collected through November 25 at all five sites.
“We are very grateful to have the opportunity to celebrate how far The Kupcake Factory has progressed over the last five years with our community and devoted consumers,” said owner Claudia Melgar. “We really want this day to be about our supporters and local businesses in New Orleans, all in the spirit of a French Quarter-worthy celebration,” said the organization.
