Hugs + Mugs is a café and retail store run by our GiGi U graduates, now referred to as “Interns” along with our support staff. Each intern will manage different aspects of a real-life retail environment and continue building their career skills.

Today we want to introduce you to Liz one of our Rockstar Hugs + Mugs Interns!


Hi my name is Liz and I am 27 years old. I am a graduate of GiGi U and now an intern at Hugs + Mugs. My ultimate favorite thing about GiGi’s Playhouse is the toys, programs, and of course hanging out with all my friends. I work very hard at designability and always being my #BestOfAll!

Also, my favorite lesson in Hugs + Mugs is always learning the new ways how to make a mug. When I work I love to serve the gelato and see all the customers smiling faces. One of my favorite items on the menu in the café is the cookies.

Lastly, I love to inspire everyone to be generous, to be accepting and to be kind!  I am #generationG!


Come out and visit my friends and I in Hugs + Mugs and purchase my favorite unicorn mug today. We hope to see you soon!
