About Us


Let us do the baking.

We are a commercial wholesale bakery, proudly serving the restaurant and retail grocery industry since 1981. We specialize in creating unforgettable desserts for food-focused establishments.

Whether you are looking for a custom dessert to reflect the spirit of your restaurant's menu, or interested in an item from our existing product line, we offer both restaurant-ready and retail-ready dessert creations that make a lasting impression.

Handmade with heart in our Southern kitchen since 1981.

In 1981, Valerie Wilson set out to create the perfect cheesecake. Armed with an idea and a 5-quart mixer in her Nashville-based home kitchen, Valerie devoted many hours of careful research and development to perfecting her recipe. Nashville restaurants soon began offering Valerie's cheesecakes to their customers, and Tennessee Cheesecake was born.

Handcrafted desserts, quality ingredients, and the utmost care by our production team: these are the pillars of our company, and they have been since our first cheesecake. We are now proudly celebrating more than three decades in business, the recent expansion of our production facility to a 40,000-square-foot space, and an extensive product line that ranges from cheesecakes of all flavors and sizes to Southern-inspired pies and beyond.

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!
