We’re proud to announce that Oakstop will be hosting a Kickstarter launch party for James & The Giant Cupcake tomorrow night in the Telegraph Gallery from 6p-10p. There will be music, drinks, sprinkles, and of course… cupcakes 🙂
After 5 years in business at their North Oakland location they are now opening up their second location right down the street from Oakstop at the corner of 17th & Webster. This only brings us closer to these amazing cupcakes!
For the last 2 years, James & The Giant Cupcake has blessed Oakstop every single Thursday, rain or shine, with delicious mini cupcakes for what we formally call CUPCAKE THURSDAYS. It has been a cornerstone of our coworking community, so we’re excited to host their launch party as we welcome James and The Giant Cupcake to Downtown Oakland.
James and the Giant Cupcake Comes
To Downtown Oakland
After almost 5 years here at the corner of San Pablo and Alcatraz Ave., we are excited to announce that we are opening our second location in downtown Oakland! We have built a dedicated community here at James and the Giant Cupcake, with more and more people learning about us every day. This past Valentine’s weekend was the busiest yet! With growth, however, comes demand. We have simply outgrown our current location and are bursting at the seams here. After much consideration, we have found the perfect fit for our second shop in the historic Howden Building on 17th and Webster. We are excited at the direction that the Oakland Renaissance has taken this city, with the bloom of downtown bars and restaurants an inspiration to us.
We have signed the lease and completed the plans. We have talked to contractors and city leaders. In the coming weeks, we will be reaching out to you, our community, for help. We will be launching our Kickstarter campaign on Friday, February 26th. The funds that we raise will help us to get over the last hurdles of actually opening the shop: equipment, staff and inventory. Not only is this a great opportunity to help a favorite local business grow and thrive, but we have set up some amazing perks to give back as a sincere thank you. From a cupcake and customized JATGC stickers to a catered party on us, and everything in between, we want this to be fun for everyone involved!
We look forward to bringing our fun, delicious and unique cupcakes and cakes to Downtown Oakland and all the people connected to this great city. Oakland’s Favorite Cupcakes will now be more accessible than ever! We look forward to seeing you downtown!
