Back in 1984, Melinda Wilson opened a small cake supply store, carrying a few cake boards, boxes and some pans. After 24 years she moved to the other side of town and the business took off! Melinda and her husband Gordon opened three more stores within one year and found themselves with four locations. Shortly after, they chose to open and focus on one large central located in San Antonio, on a mission to carry more cake supplies than any other retailer. AGS Cake Supplies sells to Chefs, Bakeries, beginners, hobbyists and all others who enjoy the creativity and fun in creating their own edible masterpieces!
They are open six days a week Monday-Saturday and closed Sunday. AGS Cake Supplies offers a variety of cake and cookie decorating classes for adults and kids every month. Visit the website for class descriptions and times! Sign up by stopping by or calling.
What were some of the biggest obstacles, triumphs, etc?
One of the biggest obstacles we had was keeping up with stocking merchandise in four locations. After reviewing the business and assessing our struggles, it made the most sense for us to consolidate into one central location, a decision that has benefited our business tremendously.
Words of wisdom for other business owners:
Expect to work hard.
What cake decorating trends are your customers excited about:
We see lots of excitement when we launch new cake decorating products. Being able to explore new creative opportunities tends to build more excitement than following already established trends and ideas. Because of this, we focus lots of energy around adding new products regularly.
What do you love most about being in business:
We love to see our customers excitement when we can fulfill their cake decorating needs.
Having repeat customers over the years has been one of our greatest joys. We love hosting an annual holiday cookie decorating party for our employees and their family. From our customers to our employees - it's a happy environment to work in!
