OUR STORY

Cheesecake Funk™ was started by owner and head baker, Vanessa Drews in 2003 to share with family and friends. In 2008, our cheesecakes became the only dessert offered at McMahon’s Irish Pub, in South Minneapolis. After a tragic event, the pub burned down in 2010 and Vanessa chose to focus on her full-time job as a Senior Paralegal.

 

Plans of baking cheesecakes for large-scale consumers were put on hold, however, cheesecake continued to be a staple dessert that was requested by family and friends.

In August 2019, Vanessa made the life-changing decision to step away from her legal career and step into a new path of growing her Cheesecake Funk™ business full-time.

 

"It has been an amazing experience to expand into many restaurants across the Twin Cities and to connect directly with customers."
