Background

About Us

Tennessee Cheesecake makes exceptionally delicious desserts,

from our signature line of cheesecakes and southern-inspired pies to custom sweet treats. We are a commercial wholesale bakery, proudly serving the restaurant and retail grocery industry. While wholesale is our core focus, we also offer our desserts through our unique corporate gifts program, and to individual retail customers through our online store (we ship nationwide). Our cheesecake can also be found at area Kroger stores - please look for us at your Kroger bakery counter!

Family-owned and operated since 1981, Tennessee Cheesecake was born when Valerie Wilson caught a spark of inspiration to create delectable cheesecakes unlike any other. Armed with an idea and a 6-quart mixer in her home kitchen, Valerie devoted many hours of careful research and development to perfecting her recipe. Because Valerie's cheesecake was the best they'd ever tasted, Nashville restaurants soon began selling it to their customers. The business grew steadily, enabling Valerie to work from home while she raised her children.

Proudly celebrating 35 years and the recent expansion of our production facility to a 40,000-square-foot space, the company's focus remains the same as in the early days: quality, handcrafted cheesecakes and other desserts that stand apart from the rest. We use the finest ingredients to create what many describe as "the best cheesecake I've ever tasted."
