Another cupcake shop cometh: Crumbs


Crumbs Bake Shop, a 7-year-old New York chain known for its oversize cupcakes, is coming to Chicago.

The first shop will open at 303 W. Madison in mid-December, a spokeswoman says "in time for the holidays," a release says.

More Crumbs shops are slated to open next year in the Chicago area, which is sorely lacking in cupcake-dispensing options.



I absolutely love this place! Any word on when they will open?

The cupcake business is really expanding. I read recently that the consumption of cupcakes rises in recession times, because people seek comfort food.
