A dessert shop that promises to serve up messy, gooey and sticky treats has officially opened in Fair Oaks Mall.

Messy Treatz opened over the weekend, bringing an assortment of “Messy jars,” “Messy cupcakes” and drinks to the space formerly occupied by Godiva Chocolatier at 11847U Fair Oaks Mall.

But unlike the huge conglomerate that called the space home a few months ago, Messy Treatz is a woman-owned, family-run business run by Brittany Lacy and her two daughters.

“We are hoping to bring the ooey, gooey, sticky, chewy experience to the area. We make all our cupcakes from scratch and with a lot of love. With unique flavors and some of the moistest cupcakes around,” Lacy told FFXnow by email.

The venture started off as a fun way for lacy to spend time with her young daughters by cultivating a love of baking and eating desserts.

Messy Treats was founded in 2017 and opened at the mall on Saturday, July 9.
