New Store, New Flavors at Grandma's Cheesecake Sandwiches

Well, we are busy, busy, busy setting up the new store in Queens, and working up some fabulous new flavors that we will be testing soon for our new menu. We are absolutely certain you are going to be delighted with what we've come up with.

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.

A Grandma's Cheesecake Sandwiches Update

Well, as you all know we did not get selected for the FedEx Small Business Grant Contest...voting obviously was a big part of their process, and being such a new business where we're still trying to get the word out landed us shy of what we needed to get over the first hurtle, but cheers to the top 100 businesses that made it through the first round. We will try again next year when we are more recognizable. So much has been happening, which is great when you are launching a start-up. There are a lot of things to do on a daily basis, and one of those things we recently did was display at a Food Show hosted by...

As a woman working in mostly male dominated industries over the years, I have suffered through workplace sexual harassment multiple times. I did try time and time again to move past it by changing jobs frequently, but it was this last time when I endured something far worse than before that I realized I’d had enough, and wasn’t going to put up with it anymore. Working for or with abusers is never a comfortable position to be in, so I started focusing my attention on creating a business that I would not only enjoy, but would keep me safe,...
