ROYAL OAK (WWJ) – A specialty cupcake shop and bakery that started in Livonia with just one location in 2009, is preparing for national expansion.

Just Baked cupcake shops offer more than 30 different flavors of gourmet, jumbo cupcakes including rocky road, s’mores, white chocolate raspberry and their famous “Fat Elvis” cupcake. They also offer several traditional, buttercream mini cupcakes, all of which are made fresh in their stores daily, as well as being the originators of Faygo cupcakes, sold in several metro Detroit grocers.

Just Baked owners Pam and Todd Turkin are partnering with a local investment team, comprised of executives from Garden Fresh Gourmet (GFG), to take their cupcakes nationwide.

“We feel extremely lucky to receive this opportunity to grow and expand our business,” said Pam Turkin. “What attracted us to the GFG team beyond their investment capital was their vast knowledge, expertise and resources of the retail and wholesale industries. We could not have selected a better partner for this venture.”

Retail expansion plans will provide six of Just Baked’s top flavors in a two-pack for grocery stores. The packs will be available in grocery stores throughout the Midwest beginning in May, 2011 and nationwide by year’s end.
