Sprinkles Cupcakes kicked off the grand opening of its Las Vegas location at The Linq with three days of sweet celebration.
The fun began on Wednesday at a friends and family event with people lining the walkway of The Linq waiting for their first taste of the famous cupcakes, cookies and ice cream. Sprinkles founder Candace Nelson hosted a VIP preview on Thursday night, spoiling guests’ dinners with sweets and champagne.
Sprinkles opened its doors to the public at The Linq on Friday at 10 a.m. with a line of enthusiasts eagerly waiting outside. Longtime Sprinkles fan Holly Madison stopped by to be the first person to withdraw a cupcake out of the 24-hour Cupcake ATM. Madison chose her favorite flavor, vanilla, before tasting chocolate ice cream in a red velvet waffle cone which matched her new red locks. She also took mini cupcakes home to daughter, Rainbow, and doggy cupcakes for her pooches.
“I’m really excited about Sprinkles coming to Vegas and The LINQ,” said Madison. “Both visitors to Vegas and locals will love it.”
“Bringing Sprinkles to Las Vegas at last is a dream,” said Nelson. “My husband and I have been working on this for years, looking for a perfect location and we found it here at The LINQ in the shadow of the High Roller!”
Sprinkles is open Monday through Wednesday 10 a.m. to midnight and Thursday through Sunday 10 a.m. to 1 a.m.
