Magnolia Bakery - Work management is the driving force behind global franchise expansion and internal US operations.
On a corner of Bleecker Street in the West Village of New York City sits the quaint, original Magnolia Bakery. Opened in 1996, Magnolia Bakery is credited with launching the cupcake craze that swept the world over the last decade. Today, their desserts have gained a nationwide audience, thanks to many high-profile movie and television appearances including Sex and the City, The Devil Wears Prada, TODAY, 30 Rock, The Martha Stewart Show, and CNN.
Today, the bakery employs 450 staff and has eight stores in New York city, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dubai, with plans to open three more in Middle East (Doha, Kuwait, Lebanon) in the coming months.
In the next five years, Magnolia Bakery is planning to open stores everywhere from Tokyo to Sao Paulo to Qatar. Additionally, they also have an e-commerce fulfillment center in New York which ships desserts nationwide.
Needless to say, growth is the name of the game.
