Over the last several years, City Center Bishop Ranch has blossomed from an idea in an architect’s rendering, to a fully functional public space, complete with shops, outdoor spaces, and establishments that offer a plethora of food options, from dumplings to Steak, and everything in between. On a sunny morning in early February, another new food establishment opened its doors at Bishop Ranch, with offerings of a sweeter variety. Sprinkles Cupcakes, a Texas-based favorite, welcomed patrons to the grand opening of only their second location in the Bay Area.
In keeping with the spirit of their neighbor Patelco Credit Union, Sprinkles features its very own cupcake “ATM,” where customers can get their sweet treats, with nothing but the press of a button. The grand opening was a wonderful display of what Sprinkles has to offer, with some guests moving quickly through the space, hitting up the ATM and taking their treats to go, while others lingered in the pleasantly lit seating area, savoring their favorite treat, and a nice hot cup of coffee.
Patelco Credit Union, a long-standing client of AE3 Partners and Sprinkles offer a space that is bright and airy for their patrons. AE3 was the architect of record for the new Patelco Credit Union and Sprinkles location at Bishop Ranch. Our firm worked with both teams to ensure that their vision and brands were proudly reflected in the final product. For our firm, it is always thrilling to see the ideas of our clients and our team transformed into reality, especially, when that reality includes cupcakes.
