About Johnny Cupcakes

Johnny "Cupcakes" Earle is an entrepreneur, innovator, speaker and prankster. Enter Johnny's fakery—a bakery themed, frosting scented T-shirt shop on Boston's historic Newbury Street where clothing is displayed in refrigerators and lunch-boxed apparel orders are pulled out of a secret smoking oven!  A true Willy Wonka-esque experience.  While some people leave with T-shirts and others leave hangry and empty handed, 100% of his customers leave with a memory and a story to share.

With global pop-ups, thousands of customers w/ his logo tattooed on themselves, people who camp out for his products, & high-profile collaborations w/ giants such as The Simpsons, Power Rangers, & Nickelodeon, Johnny was named “America’s #1 Young Entrepreneur” by Business Week, “Top Innovator in Retail” by The Boston Globe, & featured in INC magazine as the CEO of one of the world’s fastest growing independent businesses.
