Another new business could soon be opening its doors in downtown South Bend.

A local businessman is filing paperwork with the city to bring a Yummy Cupcakes franchise here.

Earlier this week Larry Katz put an offer in on a storefront on Michigan Street, where the South Bend Police substation is now.

He wants to sign a 5 year lease with the city.

If all goes well, Katz says he hopes to open by the first of the year.

Yummy Cupcakes is based in Burbank, California.
