Business partners Judy Rozier and Sally Winfrey are about to open their second Sweet Frostings bake shop, in the Wandermere Shopping Center at 12501 N. Division.
They opened their first cupcake-cake-truffles-cookies shop in November 2011 in downtown Spokane. Business is so good they're expanding into north Spokane.
The new store, with roughly 1,700 square feet, opens on Wednesday. It will operate six days a week, closed Sundays.
The location includes a party room, an option the two owners don't have at the downtown store, Rozier said.
They expect to hire eight to 12 employees. The company produces roughly 18 different cupcake styles daily.
"Once we get this store operating and profitable, and then we'll consider expanding south or to the Valley," Rozier said.
Cody George, of Kiemle & Hagood, helped arrange the lease.
Sweet Frostings opens tomorrow.
Partners Judy Rozier and Sally Winfrey are celebrating the launch of their new bakery with a grand opening 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
Rozier and Winfrey got their start selling cupcakes and goodies at the Funky Junk last spring. They were planning to offer gourmet cupcakes, cakes, French macarons (like the ones pictured above), whoopie pies, cake pops, cake truffles and decorated cookies.
Sweet Frostings, Blissful Bakeshop is located at the corner of First Avenue and Washington Street, officially 15 S. Washington St.
I got a sneak peek into the bakery while it was under construction. Tall windows and soaring ceilings promised to show off the long counter planned for goodies. It had been brightened by Tiffany blue walls and colorful tiles.
I'm excited to see how it turned out. I think I'll use that as my excuse to stop by. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the delicious salted caramel cupcakes Rozier and Winfrey brought to our interview.
