Baked by Melissa was founded by Melissa Ben-Ishay in 2008 after she was fired from her job in advertising. Upon learning the news, she ran to her older brother's office. He recommended she go home to bake her cupcakes and that they would start a business out of it. Melissa had already been known for baking cupcakes to share with the people she loved. Baked by Melissa was born that day. After 6 months of catering events and hugely successful holiday market pop ups, Baked by Melissa opened its first retail location in New York's Soho neighborhood. Now 10 years later, the company operates 14 retail locations and ships its products nationwide through a thriving E-commerce business.
"When I began making cupcakes at my apartment on that fateful day after being fired, I could never have imagined what Baked by Melissa would become," said President Melissa Ben-Ishay. "These last 10 years have been a magical journey, and I feel incredibly lucky to have created a company that makes people happy. I am excited to continue working with our hard-working, passionate team to bring the delicious joy of Baked by Melissa to as many people as we can around the country."
