1,000 free cupcakes today at Crumbs opening in Glendale, CA

Taking over the United States one bakery at a time, Crumbs is opening another new bakery this Friday in Glendale, California, and giving away 1,000 cupcakes! I'm not sure if people will be queuing up for cupcakes right after Thanksgiving, but we shall find out.

And yes, I owe you all my interview with Mia Bauer, which is terribly overdue. Soon ,I promise! The press release direct from Crumbs:

GLENDALE, CA (November 24, 2008) – Crumbs Bake Shop, the originator of the gourmet cupcake, will continue its national expansion by bringing its signature flavor to a third location in Los Angeles. The newest Crumbs location opened its doors in Glendale on Saturday, November 22, 2008. Crumbs invites the Glendale community to celebrate the opening by giving away 1,000 complimentary cupcakes (1 per person) beginning at 9:00 am on Friday, November 28th at The Americana at Brand in Glendale, a luxurious outdoor shopping experience for Glendale residents.

With this latest Los Angeles location, Crumbs builds on the success of the Beverly Hills and Larchmont stores. Both stores have exceeded sales projections by 50%, creating a significant share shift in the LA cupcake community. The newest Bake Shop, located at 803 Brand Ave in The Americana at Brand, fits in sweetly with the grand experience and beautiful ambiance surrounding the location. Over a year ago, at the opening of the Beverly Hills location, and shortly after at the Larchmont location, there was a line around the block before the shops even opened, and 1,000 cupcakes were gone well before lunchtime.

“Glendale is such a friendly town, and we are excited to become part of the community,” said Mia Bauer, Crumbs co-founder. “I love watching people getting together to enjoy each other over a cupcake. I look forward to meeting our new neighbors and hosting them in our newest shop.”

Why would any business give away that much in free product?

I have been to the Americana several times, and never noticed your store. I will look for it, next time I am there.
