Cupcake LLC, a specialty cupcake bakery that opened its first location in Charleston in 2006, will open a Greenville shop at 120 N. Main St under the name The Chocolate Moose.
Kristin Kuhlke Cobb, owner of Cupcake, said she’s been interested in expanding her business to the Greenville market for years.
"I fell in love with Greenville's downtown after visiting there,” she said. “I was so impressed by how beautiful, vibrant, and active the city was, that I thought it would be a great place for my bakery."
After experiencing success with Cupcake, Kristin decided to not only expand to another location, but to expand the business concept as well. The Chocolate Moose will offer 45 flavors of cupcakes, but in addition, have a chocolate mousse pie, tiramisu, fresh pies and specialty coffee drinks.
The grand opening of the 1,938-square-foot space is planned for early spring and the shop will be open late for after dinner treats.
Deanna Hemberger, a retail broker at Bentley Commercial LLC arranged all the details for the lease transaction.
Since 2006, Cupcake has expanded to included two additional locations in Mount Pleasant and Columbia.
