Bakeries in southwestern Connecticut cash in after popular cupcake chain, Crumbs, goes out of business

Some local bakeries say they are cashing in after a popular cupcake chain closed all of its shops, including three in southwestern Connecticut.



Crumbs closed its doors nearly a week ago, and filed for bankruptcy on Friday.



Some customers visited Forever Sweet in Norwalk Sunday in search of a new favorite cupcake store.



Sky Mercede, of Forever Sweet, says that while he hates to see a great business close, he's glad customers might now choose his business.



"They had a great product, but along the way something happened." he says. "What that is, I don't know."



CNBC star Marcus Lemonis and Dippin' Dots owner Fischer Enterprises recently invested in Crumbs. Lemonis said in a statement he and his partners will acquire most of the company, and they hope the sale will be complete in about two months.
