The first cake shop in the state of Georgia, a Georgia Cakeshop, is scheduled to open in 2018, the first in the nation.
The bakery’s owner, Melissa Jones, says she is excited to be a part of this moment.
“I’m very excited about the fact that I can do this because the people that love this country are going to want to come and get a piece of it,” Jones said.
The cake shop has a wide variety of flavors and textures.
Some of the cakes have been baked at home, others at a kitchen in the shop.
Jones and her husband, David, have been baking cakes for the past three years.
“Our passion for baking is something that we’ve had for over a decade now, but it’s really just gotten stronger and stronger,” Jones told Fortune.
“It’s been fun to go back to our roots, go back into the baking process, to the baking tradition that our grandparents have come from.
We’re here to bring that back to Georgia.”
