It's been an exciting journey, and we are now open at our first retail location in Whitestone, Queens at 12-40 Clintonville Street as a fitting tribute to my late grandmother Raphaella, who settled into the community with my late grandfather, John back in 1955. What better place to select than the very neighborhood where my grandmother baked her original plain cheesecakes from her secret family recipe. A recipe that allowed me to take this fabulous little dessert to a whole new level.  Right now, I am focusing on 18 flavors, yes I said 18 tasty morsels that leave you wanting more. While my main focus is cheesecake sandwiches, I will also be whipping up some other grab and go desserts...

Grandma's Cheesecake Sandwiches is busy getting our first retail store ready.

I just want to share with you a little. I spent the day weeding and planting flowers out back behind our new retail location, so it looks pretty for our opening. Which is still a good 6-10 weeks away. Lots to do. The biggest part is getting all the equipment in place and setting up the kitchen. It's fun and exciting and rewarding to see it come to life a little more each day. Just wish my grandmother, Raphaella was around to see what's become of her recipe. Soon we'll also be in some well known stores and supermarkets. I can't wait. And the best part of my job now is all the taste testing I get to do on...
