You Can Have Your (Cup)Cake and Eat it Too

Posted by AP Intego on Jul 1, 2019 10:18:39 AM
Based in New Jersey, Johnny started Mr. Cupcakes when he was just 22 years old. Home on a college break, he decided he wasn't built for the 9-5 world and began looking into alternative opportunities in the area. With a family history in the foodservice industry, Johnny decided to buy a bakery from a family who was looking to sell (and willing to take a chance on a 22-year-old college student). He quickly learned the art of baking and decided this was his full-time future.

Mr. Cupcakes has been in business for 12 years with no sign of slowing down. Although owning the business means long hours and constant hard work, Johnny wouldn't trade it for anything. He loves the freedom to lead the business in new directions and make his vision a reality. And putting smiles on customers’ faces is just the icing on top :)


Over the years, Mr. Cupcakes has expanded to include four storefronts across New Jersey. For a business owner as hands-on as Johnny, growing the business means managing even more moving parts.

But Mr. Cupcakes still has big plans for the future—expanding the wholesale bakery service by dedicating one facility to all of the baking in order to increase efficiency and help more customers with their cupcake needs, including fundraisers, parties, school events, and more.


When asked where his confidence in running a successful small business comes from, Johnny credits the work ethic he learned from his father. He knows that at the end of the day, any roadblocks or obstacles will be his responsibility, and he has the passion to always push through.


His favorite part of working with AP Intego? "Whenever we need help, it's easy to get a hold of the service team and they are always accommodating to any issues that arise."
