NORFOLK-A new business is hoping hoping its opening is one for the records books.

Carolina Cupcakery opened its downtown Norfolk store Wednesday with a run at the Guiness Book of World Records.

They tried to serve 1,00 customers in 15 minutes at the store on the first floor of One Commercial Place on Main Street.

Contestant lines to eat the free, mini-cupcakes began forming around 11:30 a.m.

Company officials posted on their Facebook page that they had about 1100 minis ready for the contest.
