What happens when two artists are given sugar instead of paint? Cupcakes of course.

Enjoy will be Youngstown's first cupcakery featuring over 100 flavors of cupcakes. We specialize in "from scratch" daily made cupcakes, soups and sandwiches using fresh ingredients purchased from local farmers when available. Many of our items are available gluten free, vegan, organic, low fat, and even some no fat.

We are two community minded artists creating a space for people to "enjoy" life. Our space will be used for yoga, dance, music, and art classes taught by local visual and performing artists, as well as space for meetings, receptions, and fun events. We plan on having our own organic garden that will be used for the cafe and for "in need" families in the community. Also, local community leaders will be given cards for free meals from enjoy for families who need assistance.

We plan on investing our own money into the business, however we are renovating the downstairs of a 100 year old stone church building. This includes plumbing, electrical, framing, drywall, painting, permits, etc. All money we raise from our Kickstarter project will go to this renovation and will become property of the building if we choose to move to another location. The oven, work tables, racks, mixers we will fund ourselves.
