Help us expand into our new Cupcake Bakery and Cafe!

We are The Pink Cupcake! We are a family based business that started out of our love for baking and the need to supplement Kelly's income as a stay at home/homeschooling mom! The name is in honor of Kelly's sister, mother in law, other family members and others who have passed away from breast cancer and to honor those still fighting!

We started our business in the Jacksonville Landing and were there for 4 years. We then bought a food truck, took some time off and are now ready to move into our new location in Atlantic Beach! We will offer cupcakes, cupcake "cakes" and other sweet treats, such as cake pops! We're asking you to partner with us by taking advantage of some of these offers. We did NOT want a go fund me where you get NOTHING in return. By pledging support, you not only help us, but you actually GET GREAT DEALS and cupcakes and save some $$$ in the process!!!  By moving into this new larger space, we will create a warm inviting place to visit with a dessert menu, a full espresso bar and hopefully gourmet soups in the near future as well!  This change is necessary to grow the business and we hope you will consider supporting our cause. 

We offer a variety of colorful and tasty cupcakes!

The Pink Cupcake has become the premiere purveyor of gourmet and specialty cupcakes in the Jacksonville area and beyond.  Being a small business, we love to give back through donating to worthy causes and growing our team to provide jobs for more people.  We can't wait to be able to serve more people in the near future, but we need YOUR help.

We service big and little orders!

That's where YOU come in!

Our family business would like to try and pull this off with as little debt as possible and would really appreciate your support in helping us raise money to off-set this expansion cost. 

We're asking you to partner with us by taking advantage of some of these offers. We did NOT want a go fund me where you get NOTHING in return. By pledging support,  you not only help us, but you actually GET great deals and cupcakes and save some $$$ in the process!!! 

We're raising money to be able to purchase some additional commercial restaurant equipment, an espresso machine, grinders, blenders, tables, chairs and more. (THAT'S RIGHT - WE'RE ADDING A FULL COFFEE LINEUP TO OUR BUSINESS - YOU ASKED FOR IT AND WE ARE NOW MAKING IT A REALITY).  We will be transforming the entire look and feel of the space to make it warm, inviting and comfortable.  We want you to relax, spend some time with friends, jump on the free wi-fi, enjoy your favorite latte and try some new desserts.  Your help will allow us to transform The Pink Cupcake and take it to new heights!

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges
Anytime a construction project begins, there are unforeseen challenges that may occur. We are working with a reputable contractor who we are confident will be able to work through the entire process from permit approvals to ribbon cutting.
We are also expanding our menu options to minimize the risk associated with a specialty shop. We will be offering something for everyone to increase both traffic and smiles.
Although many small businesses do fail, we have successfully grown our business and have the knowledge and experience to continue our growth well into the future.
We'll be sure to keep our backers informed along the way.
