Storefront in the mall... - Page 2

post #16 of 19
As someone else said, it depends a lot on the demographics. I would definitely go with cupcakes/ single serve pastries for the day to day sales but, the way I see it, if they can spend $300 on a pair of stilettos at Dillards and such, they can afford a custom cake too. Definately research the clientele and the average income in the area. Good luck.

I live in Greensboro and you are referring to Four Seasons Mall. They already have a cupcake kiosk. EVERY NOW AND THEN I see someone buying a cupcake. The rent is VERY HIGH here. I recall asking for a kiosk price for jewelry (several years ago) and it was almost (or right above) $1,000. And now most of the stores there are catering to the younger urban audience (except jcpenny, Dillard's and belk). So they will not appreciate your decorating ability.

I'm not sure it's so awful to carry cake through the mall, and it's certainly no certainly big deal to roll one through the back door halls on a cart. If you're doing it all the time,  it should be on a cart.  You could even have a little horn or bell- some way to let people know - hey make way ,awesome cake is coming through. My daughter had to go through Neiman's to deliver a cake for me once and she said so many people stopped her wanting to know where to get cake like that. We joked that we should just do an occasional advertising run through  high end department stores and give out cards.
