Marci Lee


My name is Marci Schiel Lee and I was born and raised in Tomball.  I graduated from Tomball HS in 1997 and then obtained my BS in Hotel and Restaurant Administration from Oklahoma State University.  I returned home after college and worked in the hospitality industry for several years.  After having my son, I knew I could not continue working late nights and weekends.  I decided to get my teaching certificate and became an elementary teacher.  I taught kindergarten and second grade in Klein ISD for 15 years.  I always knew I wanted to get back into the hospitality industry when my son got older.  During my last year of teaching my teaching partner wanted Smallcake cupcakes for her birthday.  I had never had them before, but once I tasted them I knew opening a store was going to happen for me.  I went to the website and clicked on the button to find out about how to purchase a franchise.  It took about a year to get the doors opened, but it was worth the wait.  My son is a 2022 graduate from Tomball High School and is going to play football at West Point Military Academy.  I love being my own boss and will be able to go watch my son play football without having to ask permission to take off.  Smallcakes is a great business to own with a lot of flexibility even though it is a franchise.
