Los Angeles-based cupcake and gourmet treats shop Yummy Cupcakes will open its first San Diego bakeshop and storefront in Encinitas on Monday, July 8. This location marks their seventh shop, adding to its three Los Angeles locations and three international stores.
"While it may seem that San Diego has seen its fair share of cupcake concepts roll in and out of its gourmet dessert scene, it's been clear to us from day one that Yummy Cupcakes is in a category of its own," said Shannon Mahoney, director of Operations, Marketing & Events.
Not straying from a successful formula in Los Angeles, the San Diego shop's products will also be baked in-house daily, offering 26 flavors at a time.
