Jubilee Cupcakes Closes Over Holiday Weekend, Citing Tough Economy

Jubilee Cupcakes, located at 13333 Meridian St. E. in Puyallup, has permanently closed.

Puyallup Patch has learned that Jubilee Cupcakes closed over the holiday weekend on Saturday, Dec. 29 after only one year in its new location.

Jubilee Cupcakes made the following announcement on its Facebook page today:

To all of Jubilee’s loyal customers and fans:

It is with great regret and sadness that I must notify you of the permanent closure of Jubilee Cupcakes in Puyallup as of the end of the day on Saturday December 29, 2012. We have worked very hard for a long while to build the business up but unfortunately have never been able to develop sufficient traffic to weather the financial storm of high operating costs and a weakening economy nor an increasingly onerous climate of taxation and regulatory infringement. The November election of a series of phenomenally incompetent, anti-business candidates at the Washington State and Federal levels have demonstrated to us that there is no further hope for our business in 2013.

Let me offer my deepest thanks and appreciation for all of your support since we first opened the Tacoma store in September 2009. The greatest pleasure we had from this long and difficult experience were the kind and generous compliments of our customers.

On the part of Patti and I as well as our entire staff, please accept our wishes for God's blessings to follow you and your families through the coming New Year.

We featured Jubilee Cupcakes in our first issue of Puyallup Patch and are certainly sad to see Patti Frank and her team go, and wish them all the best in their next ventures. 

Will you miss Jubilee Cupcakes? What was your favorite treat? Tell us in the comments.

You have so eloquently written my thoughts exactly. I am afraid the wave of closures has only just begun. Your cupcake business will be sorely missed.

Look around and see all the empty storefronts - just sad
