Take It From Me: CamiCakes Cupcakes
(Black Enterprise) — When CamiCakes Cupcakes (404-748-4288) opened its doors in 2006 in Orange Park, Florida, owner Andra Hall’s longtime passion became her entrepreneurial pursuit. Today, with three stores in operation (the Jacksonville, Florida location opened in 2008 and the Atlanta store opened in 2009), the business is delivering sweet success. In 2009, CamiCakes, named for Hall’s daughter, Camille, grossed nearly $1.1 million in revenues and expects to generate $2 million this year. Of course, Hall’s path to business ownership wasn’t all sweet, and the 38-year-old admits she’s still learning. Read more about her efforts to see how they can influence and inspire yours.
