The Cupcake Lounge Opens Second Ottawa Area Store in Westboro
New Retail Location for Ottawa Food Lovers Opened by Area Business
OTTAWA, Aug. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - The Cupcake Lounge Inc. today announced the opening of a new Ottawa retail store in Westboro to better serve area cupcake, dessert and latte aficionados. The new location, which can be found at 324 Richmond Road near the corner of Churchill and Richmond in the heart of Westboro Village provides a more convenient pick-up location for customers living in the west end of the city, and another food option for neighbourhood residents enjoying the benefits of a burgeoning local food scene that now includes an upscale retail bakery.
Excitement on social media reached a crescendo when one Cupcake Lounge Twitter follower, told of the new store opening, tweeted, "Tears of excitment welling up in my eyes..." Twitter was ablaze with congratulatory tweets welcoming the new retail bakery into the neighbourhood. "We're so excited to be part of such a lively and vibrant community as Westboro. We've always known that Westboro is a great place to be, and this is a great opportunity to better serve west-end customers that may not always want to go to the Byward Market. The Churchill-Richmond area is also rapidly becoming a destination for food and fashion lovers with so many wonderful restaurants and clothing stores," said company President Claudia Arizmendi. The winner of last year's Latin American Entrepreneur of the Year stated that the new retail bakery will not only offer its renowned signature cupcakes in up to 50 different flavors but will offer more gluten-free, reduced-sugar and vegan options, sweet treats like brownies, cakes, cookies, cinnamon rolls, ice cream desserts, and tarts. For the true cupcake connoisseur, retail accessories like aprons, baking ingredients, birthday candles, gift cards, jewelry, porcelain frames, pedestals and stands, and recipe books will complete the shopping experience. Arizmendi added, "All of these same products will also be available at the company's first store that opened in the heart of the Byward Market in 2011."
The new Westboro store also bodes well for the Byward Market store because the new location will be handling all telephone and e-mail orders as well as production. Byward Market employees will now be better able to focus on baking great cupcakes and providing clients with outstanding customer service in a beautiful and relaxed setting in the middle of the exciting hustle and bustle and nightlife of the Byward Market.
