Oh My Cupcakes to add east-side store

Aug. 21, 2018

You’ll soon be able to grab a cupcake with your east-side Starbucks.

Oh My Cupcakes plans to open on East 10th Street next to the Starbucks under construction near George Boom Funeral Home, the business announced today. It’s celebrating the ninth anniversary of its original store.

“We’ve had lots of requests for an east-side location and have been excited at the prospect of another stand-alone store for quite some time,” owner Melissa Johnson said. “We were waiting for what felt like the right location, and we’re excited about this new build.”

Oh My Cupcakes is leasing 1,800 square feet.

“It’s so convenient to the downtown businesses for orders, and just the traffic on East 10th and with Starbucks is a big draw,” said Raquel Blount of Lloyd Cos., who leased the space. “Even George Boom next door will be a nice opportunity to gather family and spend time together.”

The plan is to open early next year.

Starbucks is scheduled to open this fall.

There’s a 2,700-square-foot endcap still left to lease in the building, said Ryan Tysdal of Van Buskirk Cos., who has the property listed.

“This is really turning into ‘Calorie Corner,’ ” Tysdal said. “Flyboy Donuts had a wild opening on the site this year. Now, the addition of Starbucks and Oh My Cupcakes will really make this a fun redevelopment of the old funeral home site.”

The endcap can accommodate a drive-thru, he added.

“It’s a perfect setup for a restaurant, bank or pharmacy,”
