The CJ's Story

Growing up in a small town with a big family, CJ's founder and owner Cathy James always had a passion for baking and decorating cakes.  This passion grew, as did her family, and Cathy soon realized that she wanted to do more than just bake for family occasions.

At the insistence of her father, "CJ" decided it was time to take her passion to the next level.  In mid-1996, CJ's Cakes & Catering opened as a small bakery on Armory St in Hartsville, SC.  As CJ's grew, Cathy quickly realized that this modified two-story home simply wouldn't be large enough much longer.  In 2003, CJ's moved to its current location at 315 S 5th St in downtown Hartsville.

While CJ's has been producing quality, home-made baked goods for over 28 years now, the story is just beginning.  CJ's has plan to expand its business in the near future, so be on the lookout for some great changes in the years to come!
