In the last five years, more than 100 new businesses have set up shop in downtown La Crosse. Addiecakes is one of those businesses, and now, the cupcake is turning two.
During its two years of business, Addiecakes has expanded into a second location at Valley View Mall. Christie Lindberg, store manager of Addiecakes in downtown La Crosse, says the expansion has been better than they originally anticipated. She says behind the success, there is a lot of hard work; however, she says the customers make it all worth it.
"There's a lot of long days and long hours, but it's so worth it if you're passionate about it," Lindberg said. "And then, just taking the time to get to know your customers. They're the reason we're all here, so they'll just keep coming back if you continue to do that."
Addiecakes is selling their cupcakes for just $2 on Friday, February 9 to celebrate the anniversary. The downtown store is open from 10 a.m until 5:30 p.m. The Valley View Mall store is open from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.
