Bedford Cupcakes Expected to Open on Great Road in October

Bedford Cupcakes is expected to open next month at 119 Great Road, the former location of Cafe Keresa which closed this spring. Along with Cupcakes, the new restaurant is expected to feature other desserts such as Tiramisu.

Bedford Cupcakes got started about 2 years ago as Custom Cupcakes when they starting providing custom  cupcakes catering out of the Pizza Express  restaurant on 65 Loomis Street. Along with the catering, they provided cupcakes to sell in the restaurant. The business which is run by the daughter-in-law of the owners of Pizza Express, changed it's name to Cupcake Express Bedford earlier this year and will become Bedford Cupcakes when it opens in October..

Stay tuned for more details.

Best of luck to them, but I don't understand why cupcake stores keep deciding to open up in that space. None of the others have fared very well.

Hi Anonymous,

The first store appeared to be doing well but the owner had health issues and decided to sell it. I'm not sure exactly what happened with the second store but I know all of the baking and retail equipment was still there and probably at a good deal to pick up.

If the new store, Bedford Cupcakes is doing a decent amount of catering business then it probably made sense to go ahead. The additional equipment and space may make it easier to expand their catering business and then there is probably not too much additional fixed costs to go retail.
