Cupcakes and Smiles
About a year ago, a new Nashville phenomenon opened - Gigi's Cupcakes - at 19th and Broadway. When I was working at our Crye-Leike Midtown office (across the street), I took a little trip over there and got one. Since then, it's been a favorite place to meet clients. Many clients and friends have been very generous and have treated me to those delectably sweet treats. So far, my favorite is Southern Comfort, a delectable rendition of ooey gooey pecan pie with a caramel frosting. Yummy! And then others that are close seconds are Key Lime, Tiramisu, Orange Dreamsicle and Hunka Chunka Banana Love. Of course, their biggest seller is Wedding Cake, but there's nothing that any sane dessert lover would ever turn down.
Who knew that when Gina Butler first opened one of these that it would take off like it did?! Gina, now a personal friend, is a savvy and successful businesswoman. Whenever you're in a Gigi's, ask if she's there. If she is, she'll be glad to come out and greet you. And tell her that Jack sent you!
There's another one in Cool Springs (in the Meridian Complex) and one in Spring Hill (on Crossings Boulevard). The next Gigi's to open in Middle Tennessee will be their Hendersonville location. For more information about Gigi's, including the daily menu and their monthly newsletter, click HERE. Get a Gigi's cupcake. It'll put a smile on your face!
If you're looking for a real estate agent who knows the area well, then give me a call. I'm happy to give you a hand finding a home at the price, terms and conditions you desire. And if you're selling your home, I'll be happy to show you my marketing plan - second to none - to get your home sold!
