About this event

Two girls walked into an exquisite (and very tiny) cupcake shop while vacationing in London, England, and that is how Lucy & Leo’s Cupcakery came to life. They  had a “lightbulb” moment, looked at each other and decided they had to open their own cupcakery in Tallahassee. The country was in a recession and they thought people needed a sweet, inexpensive treat to celebrate themselves.

Jean Bates hailed from slinging drinks and food in many Tallahassee restaurants through college as well as managing the Fresh Market.  In 2008, Jean graduated with her MBA from Florida State University and entered the not so abundant job market at that time.

Paula Lucas worked in retail all throughout college and was a retail General Manager “lifer;” although she had tied on an apron quite a few times in life alongside her Grandma and Dad, who were both great bakers.

Collectively, they had the MBA brains, the biz owner savvy and some amazing recipes for sweet confections up their sleeves.
