Two business plan expansions in region

Tailgaters Dunkin’ and Nothing Bundt Cakes are expanding.

Tailgaters Dunkin’ and Nothing Bundt Cakes are expanding to new locations in Greater Lansing.

Tailgaters Dunkin’ opens its new store in Holt this fall at the corner of Holt and College roads. It is owned by Steve Tomkovich and his family: wife Ashley, father-in-law Chris Haddad, brother-in-law Jeffrey Haddad, and sister-in-law and brother-in-law Danni and Brad Schertzing. Tailgaters is the convenience store portion of a Sunoco gas station with offerings that include bourbon, wine and craft beer. The attached Dunkin’ speaks for itself.

Tomkovich said they look forward to joining the Holt and Mason communities and that being even a small part of someone’s day feels great. Tailgate Dunkin’ prides itself on family and respect for employees.

“This has always been more than just a business to the family; it’s their way of life,” said Tomkovich.

Nothing Bundt Cakes expanded to 2090 W. Grand River Ave. in Okemos. The partnership includes Kelly and Jerry Yurgo and Wendy and William Kinney. Also family-owned, the bakery makes everything on-site from scratch and offers a variety of Bundt cakes, including a gluten-free choice. The store will handle large business events, weddings and graduation parties.

“We specialize in B2B gifting, and delivery is available,” said Jerry Yurgo, adding that bringing joy to people tasting the cakes for the first time is rewarding.

“At Nothing Bundt Cakes, our goal is to bake a cake that not only reminds you of home but … opens you to a new world,” he said.
