CEO / OWNER
With her signature cupcakes and delicious homemade menu items, Tracy treats her Tracycakes guests with that same homespun hospitality. Today—together with daughters Melissa and Jessica—she operates two Tracycakes locations: in Abbotsford and Fort Langley.
A member of Gro Your Biz, the Langley, Abbotsford Chambers of Commerce, and many other fine organizations, Tracy is actively involved in the communities in which she does business. Through the numerous charities Tracycakes supports—and the year-round special events and promotions her company offers—Tracy continues to make the world a better place, one cupcake at a time. In her off-hours, Tracy and her husband of 28 years, Ray, enjoy family times at the cabin, gardening, and spending time with their two delightful grandsons, Jonah and Fox.
CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER
Melissa Suominen serves as Tracycakes Bakery Café’s Chief Operations Officer and oversees all two Tracycakes locations. In Abbotsford, Melissa manages the store, helps serve, and organizes special events, such as wedding or baby showers and birthday parties.
After graduating from W. J. Mouat Secondary in 2004, Melissa studied hair design at Utopia Academy, earning her diploma in 2006. Shortly after, she established her own business, Under the Veil, which provides hairstyling services for bridal parties and grads alike.
When not serving her wonderful Tracycakes and Under the Veil customers,
Mel indulges in her love of thrift-store shopping, cooking (she’s a big Jamie Oliver fan), and hiking and bike riding with her husband of four years, Mika. She blogs about thrifting and other adventures at www.melissasuominen.blogspot.ca.
