Crumbs, the country’s largest cupcake chain, could soon have over 50 locations in New York City, Newmark Knight Frank’s Jeff Roseman, who represents the tenant, told the Observer. The store, which also sells coffee and other baked goods, is looking for new locations on the Upper East Side, in Chelsea, the West Village and around Lincoln Center. A Times Square store is already underway. Crumbs also plans to expand in Park Slope, Brooklyn and Forest Hills, Queens. The store is looking for spaces between 1,000 and 1,500 square feet that have good foot traffic. The store currently operates 16 stores in New York City, and in the past year, signed leases for six new locations in the city, including its first Brooklyn location at 109 Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights. Along with Roseman, Newmark’s Marc Frankel and Benjamin Birnbaum also represented the tenant. Crumbs, founded in 2003, also recently announced it will go public through a $66 million merger with an investment company. [NYO]
