A fun business idea, Mari Luangrath, aka @foiledcupcakes, began her delivery-only cupcake business, Foiled Cupcakes (www.foiledcupcakes.com) in early 2009 to bring a bit of shiny, happy, goodness to the Chicagoland area. Mari's Twitter profile is a tip off... "Follow me as I attempt to grow my business on Twitter!" Foiled Cupcakes’ innovative business model relies heavily on social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter, which has allowed Mari to connect with her customers and truly develop a fan base. While the Foiled Cupcakes are both imaginative & delicious, Mari’s interactions with the community go well beyond selling cupcakes as Foiled Cupcakes contributes to a variety of non-profit organizations, and people have come to know Mari as an energetic & dynamic entrepreneur, mom and friend. @FoiledCupcakes’ Twitter followers have not only become her customers, but her cheerleaders & even her cupcake models!
Mari and her wonderful cupcakes bring joy to her customers and her fans, who in a few short months have grown far beyond the Chicago area. With creativity and love, Mari has grown her business by bringing people together through cupcakes!
