We are delighted everyday with the joy and happiness that Pinkitzel's sweet treats brings to kids of all ages! That is what we and the amazing team we have the privilege to be a part of strive for and hope that everyone who walks through the doors experiences!
–Jonathan & Christa
Pinkitzel is the dream and creation of Christa and Jonathan Jantz, an Oklahoma City couple with five amazing children; Asheley, Ashton, Asher, Ashby, and Ashwell.
Christa and Jonathan wanted to create a special place in Bricktown that would be a fun place to visit and full of bright colors, amazing flavors and incredible decorating and design. Christa and Jonathan come from a family of entrepreneurs with grocery stores, dry cleaners, coffee shops, and BBQ smokehouses in southeastern New Mexico, Texas, Utah, and parents who own Inspirations Tea Room, Two Hearts Inn and Teaoli retail and wholesale olive oil and tea stores in Edmond and Norman.
Since opening in 2010 Pinkitzel has grown and expanded and is now in locations in downtown Oklahoma City and downtown Tulsa, as well as a their newest store, Jumpin Jackalope, a southwestern inspired jerky, nuts, home decor, apparel, and novelty store.
Since 2010 over half a million visitors from Oklahoma, and all over the world have walked through the doors at Pinkitzel, and over half a million cupcakes have been served, not to mention the thousands of truffles, macarons, and hundreds of thousands of pounds of taffy and candy that have brightened and sweetened someone's day. Many photo sessions and engagements have taken place in the stores, and couples celebrating their weddings have returned to celebrate their children's first birthdays in Pinkitzel's party rooms, and we've even had sweet sixteen birthdays who now are celebrating engagements and rehearsal dinners at Pinkitzel!
