Annapolis Mall is thrilled to announce local bakery, Cup+Cake Blvd as their 2015 Culinary Challenge winner. As a winner of this contest, Cup+Cake Blvd has received culinary space for 3 months rent free in the Dining Café, marketing support and the tools needed to succeed in their newest location. Opening on January 23rd, 2016 Cup+Cake Blvd offers their signature cupcakes, custom cakes, sweet treats, and their new product line, the Maryland Cookie.
During the spring of 2015, Westfield Annapolis hosted a culinary challenge offering aspiring culinary entrepreneurs with the opportunity to make their culinary dream a reality. “We had an empty space that was left in excellent condition and wanted to activate it, so we launched the Culinary Challenge in the hopes to find local chefs/entrepreneurs who Westfield Annapolis could partner with and give them the opportunity to open up a business at Maryland’s premier regional shopping center rent-‐free,” states Matt Barry, District Manager, Westfield
Westfield Annapolis was on the search for food entrepreneurs to present their culinary concepts to the Westfield Annapolis Management Team. After reviewing the numerous applications and concepts, Westfield Annapolis was certain that Cup+Cake Blvd was the perfect fit for its shoppers. “We had some excellent entries, but Cup+Cake Blvd won us over with their excellent product and inherent entrepreneurially skills,” continued Barry.
“It has been a dream to open a second location in the Annapolis area,” states Angelette Aviles, owner of Cup+Cake Blvd. “Knowing the amount of people who are in Westfield Annapolis daily and the support the leasing team offers to their tenants, winning this contest confirmed that this was going to be without-‐a-‐doubt, the perfect home for our second location,” continued Aviles.
Cup+Cake Blvd will host their Grand-Opening event on Saturday, January 23rd offering the first 100 guests a FREE mini-‐cupcake. In addition, guests will be entered to win a grand prize of FREE custom cake (up to $100 in value). For guests who download the Cup+Cake Blvd APP, guests will receive an additional incentive.
