Meet Marie Brown and Anthony Brown of Smallcakes of Alpharetta

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marie Brown and Anthony Brown.

Marie and Anthony, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
We’ve been on our journey since January 2015. We’ve had our struggles, had our trials and errors much like any business. The toughest times were when we had employee turnovers. Then we’d substitute ourselves until someone was replaced. The biggest challenge was balancing time at home. Spending the time with the kids, maintaining the household and keeping our sanity. Lol!

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Smallcakes is a unique franchise. Though there are certain regulations from corporate, we are run autonomously. Each owner has their own way of running their store; unless an owner has several locations, no stores are alike. Smallcakes of Alpharetta is proud to say we bake fresh daily. We never close our doors when selling out, we just bake more. We never freeze our cupcakes. We don’t sell day-old cupcakes. Orders are baked the same day of pick up. We love our customers and putting smiles on their faces with delicious cupcakes. We make it a point to meet cupcake wants and needs the best we can. We offer choices and selection. An individual cupcake can be customized as well as several dozens.

What quality or characteristic do you feel is most important to your success?
Cupcakes will always be an old time favorite of many. They are equal portions for everyone. Cupcakes have made their way to weddings, corporate events, birthday celebrations, baby showers, etc. gifts for clients and a “just because…” treat.
