Franchise Times Features Gigi’s Cupcakes’ Gina Butler

Bonelaw client Gina Butler, who started the Gigi’s Cupcakes brand, is on the cover of the January issue of Franchise Times. The story details Gina’s rise to fame, which includes baked goods instead of country music, and one she made happen with just $33 in her pocket. The California-raised daughter of a farmer moved to Nashville to pursue a career singing country music in the mid-1990s and soon found herself waitressing at Red Lobster and cleaning houses as she worked Music Row. Frustrated that her singing career was not taking off, it was a call from her brother—and a call from a higher power—that led Gina to open her cupcake business. Now, seven years and more than 100 locations later, she is about to see her first international store open (in South Korea) and see herself on an episode of CBS’ Undercover Boss.

Attorney William T. Cheek III had this to say about Gina, his client: “I am so proud to see Gina work so hard to accomplish the American Dream and become a success.”
