The popular cupcake shop Cupcrazed Cakery is opening its second area location Wednesday near the Park Road Shopping Center.
The bakery opens at 9 a.m. at 1730 E. Woodlawn Road Suite H, the spot formerly occupied by Polka Dot Bake Shop, which closed before the holidays last year.
Cupcrazed’s other local store in Fort Mill has been “wildly successful,” the company said in a statement this week. The new Charlotte location will be a “near duplicate” of that shop.
Cupcrazed owner Heather McDonnell has won the Food Network’s “Rewrapped” and “Cupcake Wars.” The company says social media plays a big role in its success: Cupcrazed has more than 50,000 Facebook fans, and more than 18,000 followers on Instagram.
Cupcake flavors will be rotated daily, the bakery has said, and the new Charlotte location will also have $2 Tuesdays.
