Entrepreneur Johnny Cupcakes Preaches Power of Hard Work, Innovation

Lance Hill ’15, Staff Writer

When you think of “entrepreneur” Johnny Earle a.k.a. “Johnny Cupcakes is probably not the first person who comes to mind. A regular young teen working at Newbury Comics created a T-Shirt that took the world by storm.

Johnny Cupcakes took a visit to Merrimack College campus on March 11, and talked about his early life shoveling driveways in the winter, his hustle days in school, and how his T-shirt logo design is now a multi million dollar clothing line. It has become so worldly popular, people tattoo the cupcake and cross bones on their skin.

Merrimack’s own MPB put together this event and our communities gathered to listen to Johnny Cupcakes give us his words of wisdom on how he came from nothing to one of the “Best Entrepreneurs 25 and Under” by Business Week in 2008.
