PARKING LOT HUSTLE

While in Orlando, within half of a days notice, we decided to have a pop-up shop in the parking lot of Park Ave Cd’s for the Vintage Valentine event. Thank you to the hundreds of loyal customers who came out to support within 10 hours notice via social media! Also, BIG THANKS to Good Company Co., Clark Orr, Park Ave CD’s, and Nick Rivera for helping make this last minute idea into a big success! Where should we pop up next? ...

SNACKS WITH A DAY TO REMEMBER

Longtime supporters and fans of the Johnny Cupcakes brand, Jeremy and Kevin of ADTR met up to hang and eat!

GOOD LORD! A Day To Remember will be recording their new album soon and touring this summer. If they come to your neighborhood, support! ...

PLAYLIST LIVE

Holy guacamole!! Playlist Live in Orlando, FL is quite the spectacle! 8,500 screaming YouTube connoisseurs travel from all corners of the world, to meet their favorite YouTubers and Viners. From comedians, vloggers, and stuntmen—to pranksters, musicians, and chefs—the venue was crawling with internet celebrities. Last year I was invited to guest speak on entrepreneurship and building a brand, but this year, I thought we’d hang for the weekend and sell t-shirts. Although it was a lot of...

BANH MI NHA TRANG // ORLANDO, FL

Ah, the Bánh Mì. This sexy sandwich from Vietnam has a spell on me. The crusty yet fluffy French roll stuffed with cilantro, mayo, and your choice of forget-me-nots could make a grown man cry. Although grilled pork is my favorite selection, I am more than willing to try anything at Bánh Mì Nha Trang in Orlando, FL. This spot is owned by an adorable, humorous, charming couple who work here together every open hour. These are the type of people that you want to shrink and put in your pocket to...

UNC Charlotte Lecture

While speaking at UNC Charlotte, I stayed with longtime friend, Shane. His cats rule! I also concurred the creepiest mall to find some great banh mi sandwiches, & I made it out alive! After I was all fueled up, I went to UNC to give a lecture on entrepreneurship, building brand hysteria & following your passion. I’m still blown away by the amount of people who travel out to show their support! I even saw a few Johnny Cupcakes tattoos + a gaggle of vintage JC tees! Thank you everyone...

SOCIAL MEDIA EXPERIMENT

While on the cold streets of NYC, I thought it would be a fun experiment to post on my instagram, twitter, and snapchat, “The first 7 people to meet me at this spot, will get a free prize!” Within minutes, customers began showing up at the restaurant I was at. This same experiment was successful on random street corners that week. It’s not even about getting a free prize. Both myself and these customers are just excited to meet, chat, and interact! Thank you all who found me with...

GRIMALDI’S PIZZA

Nestled not far from New York City, in Woodbridge, Connecticut, is where you’ll find Grimaldi’s Pizza. This specific location was found on accident when pulling off of the highway to find a potty. Well, we found more than a potty. We found a haven for pizza lovers! Welcome to Grimaldi’s Pizza! Popping all of the crust bubbles by hand! The scorching heat can’t even stop this pizza man from focusing on his craft! The station. The motherboard. Where it all goes down. Mushroom...

VISITING FASHION TRADE SHOWS

We recently visited some of the fashion trade shows while in New York City for some meetings. These trade shows happen a few times a year, spread out over multiple locations. Many brands give it their all, and either make it or break it. Although it’s a great place to get picked up by press and potential buyers of stores around the world—I find the most value is the networking. Meeting new friends, seeing old friends, learning from others mistakes and success, sharing stories, and inspiring...

NYC INSPIRATION TRIP

To kick off the new year, both myself and part of the Johnny Cupcakes creative team, took a trip to New York City for some inspiration. We did not let the coldest weather of all time stop us! Lennard of marketing, our newest designer Corey, our head designer Chris, and myself, started a new band called, The Bathroom Boys. We’ll be performing at a sketchy gas station bathroom near YOU! On a slightly terrifying note, after using this bathroom we noticed the only soap was a cold, dirty, used...
