Karina Ramírez: NV Cupcakes opens Denton location

With walls painted in its signature baby blue and brown, NV Cupcakes opened its Denton location Thursday at 118 E. McKinney St.

Ngoc Nguyen opened at 11 a.m., and the shop’s first customer explored the new place.

The 1,400-square-foot location previously housed Noles General Store.

Nguyen opened NV Cupcakes in Corinth in 2010 with her sister, Van.

The sisters will run both of their stores, but they now have help from two interns from Lake Dallas High School, who work two days a week at the Corinth location.

The new shop off the Square has a dining area where customers can enjoy their cupcakes.

Nguyen said additional decorations are still coming.

“All we had was very small, but it would be nice to have a mural on our wall,” she said.

The store will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. or until cupcakes are sold out for the day.

For more information, call 817-229-3031.

A couple of eateries will be part of Sterling Fry Street, which will open later this year.

On Tuesday, officials with the development announced three additions to the multistory complex at Fry and Hickory streets. Chipotle Mexican Grill, MacDaddy’s Macaroni & Cheese Bar and Grip Mediterranean Grill have committed to the new development.
