About The Handmade Cheesecake Company
The Handmade Cheesecake Company was established in 2011.
How We Started
The company initially traded online for a few years and we held pop up shops in various large shopping centres and up until August 2020 we traded through our parent company The Dessert Depot Ltd located at Heathfiled in Ayr. We also had a small shop at the front of our production premises.
Everything changed in July 2020
The pandemic was forcing many food businesses to re-think their long term strategy and we decided to open a bricks and mortar shop on the Main Street of Prestwick. At the same time the company became a limited company no longer trading through The Dessert Depot.
We opened our shop on 14th December 2020 – Just 12 days before the next lockdown – however we knew we had made the right decision as the response was phenomenal.
All our cheesecakes, cakes, tarts and traybakes are made at the Dessert Depot who is our sole supplier. We do some finishing touches to them in our shop though! 😊 We also installed a donut making machine in our shop which makes fresh donuts daily – it's very popular!
Both the Dessert Depot and the Handmade Cheesecake company are owned and managed by the same people who live locally in Prestwick.
Thanks for stopping by and reading our story.
We look forward to welcoming you to our shop in Prestwick soon. If you live further afield you can always order online. 😊
