Nothing Bundt Cakes is continuing down the exciting road of their expansion as they hold the title of the nation’s largest specialty cake company, by furthering the expanding of their leadership team with the appointment of new Chief Development Officer Chris Tarrant.
Tarrant most recently served as Senior Vice President of Retail Store Development and Design at Starbucks, and will now oversee all aspects of strategic growth and development of the franchise system as the company is coming off a record year in 2022 for new development deals.
“Nothing Bundt Cakes is growing exponentially, and Chris knows how to aggressively grow a brand in a purposeful way to bring our quality cakes to more guests nationwide,” said Nothing Bundt Cakes interim CEO Sarah Spiegel in an official release. “Our franchisees opened over 50 bakeries last year and expect to open more than 100 in 2023, so Chris is joining the team at a pivotal point as Nothing Bundt Cakes continues down its path of intentional growth.”
“Nothing Bundt Cakes continues to perform at impressive levels. Its continued success is driving lots of interest from existing and prospective bakery owners, and I look forward to helping the company meet the challenges of rapid expansion while maintaining our focus on care and quality of our cakes that guests love,” said Tarrant. “Anyone who has ever tasted the brand’s signature cakes knows the joy they bring to all of life’s special moments, and I’m honored to be joining the leadership team to continue spreading that joy while accelerating the company’s growth.”
