Westchester County Executive George Latimer presented Miesha Stokley and Montika Jones of Cupcake Cutie Boutique (8 South 6th Avenue, Mount Vernon) with a proclamation in celebration of their Four-Year Anniversary, on Friday, November 1st.
“Thank you to George Latimer, the County Executive and the Westchester County Government for recognizing Cupcake Cutie Boutique as a selfless organization that serves the community!,” Cupcake Cutie Boutique founder, Miesha Stokely shared with Black Westchester. “This is special to us considering all of the obstacles we pushed through over the last year!
Cupcake Cutie Boutique, located at 8 South 6th Avenue in Mount Vernon had its grand opening Saturday, October 10, 2015. Cars were double-parked and lines were coming out the door and down the street on South Sixth Avenue. Offering over 30 varieties of gourmet Cupcakes and Sweet Treats, the mother-daughter bakery located at 8 South Sixth Avenue, had a steady flow of traffic from 7am to 7pm, selling over 700 cupcakes and selling out just before 5pm. DJ Tri-State Jericko, known to many as the Voice of Westchester entertained customers on the ones and twos, throughout the afternoon.
Cupcake Cutie Boutique has been the picture of perseverance, surviving illegal attempted shut-downs, repeated inspections from the Mount Vernon Building Department and the city withholding their permanent certificate of Occupancy. Miesha – owner, and daughter of Damon and Montika Jones never wavered, never gave up and refused to allow the unprovoked attacks from the previous administration to stop her from being a positive role model for young ladies and the selfless work and service she does from the community.by local government.
Stokley’s victory was a victory for every business that was being illegal targeted by local government. Her story of perseverance, standing up for herself and speaking truth to power. While that is what kept the doors opening, it is the great quality, incredibly delicious treats and excellent customer service the keeps customers walking through the doors.
“As always I’m proud of Montika S. Jones and Miesha Sarah for their accomplishments as Black Women and Black Business Owners,” Black Westchester Publisher Damon K. Jones shares. “Today they’ve received a Proclamation for Westchester Country Executive George Latimer for their hard work and community service.”
