Guide to Greater Gainesville is at Tioga Town Center.

We have exciting news: Patticakes is launching another location in the Tioga Town Center, and they’re opening soon!
For this week’s sweet #WTFF, we spoke to @patticakesgnv about the new opening and what’s to come!
Patticakes’ Tioga location came to them in the form of an offer from an old friend of the Pattersons’ in Tioga Town Center management. Jan, co-owner of Patticakes, received an email from Avison Young asking if she and her husband would be interested in expanding their local business to Tioga.
“I told my husband and I was thinking he’d say, ‘no way,’” Jan said with a giggle, “but here we are!”
Jan said Patticakes looks forward to getting to know the community of Tioga: “In Haile, we are very plugged into that little community there, so we’re hoping to recreate that and make those relationships here.”
Though the pandemic was tough for many businesses, especially locally, Jan reflects on Patticakes’ experience these past months with a bittersweet smile.
“When we were first locked down and everyone had to stay home, that was hard,” Jan said, “but just watching how my team rallied around that and how our customers supported us through it, that’s going to stick with me for a long time.”
“I get choked up just thinking about it,” she said, eyes glistening. “Our customers were so faithful and supportive.”
Expected to officially open by the end of fall (likely sooner), Patticakes will have a small grand opening taking proper precautions to celebrate their newest location. Stop by their newest location for a sweet treat and a good time!
Or, if you can’t wait, head over to their Haile Village location for one of their widely acclaimed bakery items! We hear the red velvet is their best seller, but they ALSO have pumpkin spice… do with that information as you will. 😉
Thank you, Patticakes, for keeping our community stocked with the yummiest cupcakes and the warmest friendships! Make sure to keep an eye out on their social media @patticakesgnv for any updates #coffee #patticakes #tiogatowncenter #cupcakes #guidetogreatergainesville #sweets ... See MoreSee Less
