Idea

Love Cheesecakes is looking to create a dessert experience; fresh cheesecakes served over the counter, ordered online or enjoyed with a sit down meal.

Our cheesecakes are individual sized and customers have a wide choice of flavours that will be offered in both the chilled and frozen dessert market.

We’ve been testing the product now for 5 years by launching new flavours at food festivals and asking for feedback. If the product performs well over 3 events we add the product to our website for e-commerce sales.

Businesses/consumers can reduce risk, storage space and wastage as we deliver fresh cheesecakes which then can be frozen for a later date. Our research suggests that competitors cheesecakes are delivered frozen as they are larger.

The company was designed and created in a recession and has been trading for over 4 1/2 years now. It's a tried and tested product which offers our B2B customers a fresh quality product, reducing waste as they order what they need (not in quantities of 12 or 14 that large frozen cheesecakes offer).

We now want to scale up, create 3 retail units across the North West (almost the same as Millie's Cookies footprint which has 8 stores in the area with a focus on shopping centres), and undertake a marketing campaign. We are now a retail ready product and in discussions with supermarkets.
