Tonnie had an idea for a bakery. Initially, the idea was to be a local small business offering a unique bakery experience. Walk-in and make your mini cupcakes. You can choose the cake base, whatever flavor frosting you would like, what kind of sprinkles and topics, etc. The first location they had opened was having some success, and so Tonnie and his wife decided to open a second location.
He has managed to move to a new, superior location where he can fit more customers and generate more sales. He is also frequently receiving large order requests from clients all over the city and outside. The Newark location is up and running and generating profit. The company has also expanded into making cakes for special occasions like birthdays and weddings, adding yet another layer, and improving sales. Tonnie hopes to continue growing the bakery to become one of the most successful in NYC.
