WEST POINT, Miss. (WCBI) — Columbus’ loss is West Point’s gain. For years, Jubilations Cheesecakes put Columbus on the map by shipping its tasty products to hotels, cruise ships and restaurants around the country. Four years ago, the company sold to West Point resident George Purnell. Purnell is now moving the operation to the new Community Commons on Highway 45 Alternate. In addition to the bakery, Purnell plans to add a coffee-shop atmosphere where customers can sip coffee in one area while watching the cakes being made. Purnell says he hopes to have it up and going by the end of June.
