Bite-sized cupcake bakery Baked by Melissa is a female-driven business. Its founder, Melissa Ben-Ishay, has been able to grow the business to over a dozen locations throughout the New York area that ship its goods nationwide.
In honor of International Women’s Day on Friday, March 8, Baked by Melissa is giving back to a charity that empowers girls. The company is donating 10 percent of all net proceeds to Girls Inc.
Girls Inc. is a nonprofit headquartered in New York that looks to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. The organization does this through a combination of long-lasting mentoring relationships, a pro-girl environment, and research-based programming.
There are a variety of options for customers to purchase at Baked by Melissa’s physical locations and online. The latest is a St. Patrick’s Day cupcake featuring green vanilla cake stuffed with brownie batter and topped with gold sprinkles.
