About this project

Carytown Cupcakes is located in Richmond, Virginia and offers 13 flavors of cupcakes every day. We use all-natural ingredients and we put lots of love into every bite! Each week, we create our specialty flavors around themes, such as Italian Desserts, Wine Country, Ice Cream, etc. We love the creative aspect of what we do and the joy that it brings to our customers.

Carytown Cupcakes opened a little over 2 years ago, and we’ve outgrown our current space. We have been baking in one facility and delivering the cupcakes to our retail space. We are now in the process of combining both parts of our business into one location. The new location will be 3111 W. Cary Street, which is centrally located in the boutique shopping district of Carytown.
This will provide us with much more foot traffic and will be much easier for our clients to find. We’ll also have a viewing window between the shop and the kitchen, so that the customers can watch us make and decorate the cupcakes!

What 3111 W. Cary Street doesn't have is a kitchen, and this is not an inexpensive thing to build. We also have to build an ADA compliant bathroom to bring the space up to code. To get 3111 W Cary Street up and running, we need about $40,000 in construction, and about $30,000 worth of equipment. Please help us make this happen, and you will enjoy our cupcakes for many years to come. To show our thanks, everyone who backs our project will be honored on our website. Please follow our construction progress on our Facebook page!

**Please note: For out-of-town backers, we will mail gift certificates to you for the baked goods that you can use when visiting Richmond or that you can give as gifts*
