Cupcake Gallery is owned by the husband-and-wife team, Kyle and Ana Holcombe.
The Holcombe’s always dreamed of owning their very own business, they just didn’t know exactly how or what it would be. One evening in the fall of 2007, while watching TV, a brilliant idea came to Ana when she realized just how popular cupcakes were. She suggested the thought of opening their own cupcake shop to her husband.
As they discussed their new idea, suddenly Cupcake Gallery began to take shape. Kyle began working tirelessly to create the perfect cupcake recipes, while Ana took on the less-appetizing (but necessary) legal work. Soon after, the Holcombe’s recruited a few taste testers to make sure every recipe passed the “two-thumbs-up test.” With recipes and business plan in hand—and with a lot of help from Ana’s Sister, Norma—they were ready to open shop and start their cupcake making. On Saturday, March 28, 2009, Cupcake Gallery threw open its doors to the public at 107 Person St., in historic downtown Fayetteville.
