Founder, Johnny Cupcakes
Why have thousands of customers from around the world chosen to get the Johnny Cupcakes’ logos tattooed on themselves? And how does Johnny get hundreds of people to camp outside his fake bakeries? Over the past decade Johnny Cupcakes, founded by Johnny Earle, has grown from a “joke” to a multi-million dollar, highly exclusive t-shirt brand driven by a community of world-wide collectors. Johnny shares his story of how he took his t-shirt brand from the trunk of his car at age 19, to some of the world’s most sought after retail locations. Johnny has been named Americas #1 Young Entrepreneur by BusinessWeek, one of the top innovative people in MA by The Boston Globe; & has been featured on MTV, NPR, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and as a case study in several branding and business books.
