Nicole Longo opened The Cupcake Spot, the area’s first original gourmet cupcakery, opened in December 2007 in Tampa, and a second location opened in St. Petersburg two years later. 

Here are excerpts from her application for LocalShops1's 2014 Best in Biz Awards:

"One of our managers serves as an informal 'ambassador' for our company, and has socially met dozens and dozens of business owners near our storefront.  His interactions with these owners has led to cross-promotion marketing opportunities and referrals for events."
"We are on a first-name basis with  a host of customers, and frequently hear from new visitors that they were referred by customers. The creativity of our staff and the 20-year marketing experience of the owner add to the originality of our strategic programs."
