Gigi’s is infused with the personality of Gigi herself, the founder of the concept and a musician-turned-cupcake baker. Her rags-to-riches story is relayed on the website, along with the personal yarns of new franchisees who join the “family.” That spirit of connection, and the fact that 10 daily-changing cupcakes are baked fresh in each store sets Gigi’s apart in the narrow dessert niche.
