Success is a Piece of Cake
A two time winner of the Franchise Council of Australia’s Franchisor of The Year, The Cheesecake Shop’s proven franchise system is your key to small business success.
Founded by brothers Warwick and Robert Konopacki in 1991, The Cheesecake Shop has grown into a network of almost 200 stores across Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the United Kingdom. Recognised for its consistency of quality and care taken by baking in store, The Cheesecake Shop has achieved remarkably high brand awareness among consumers.
Our strength resides in how simple it is to operate a franchise. In addition to the comprehensive four-week training course comprising of both theoretical and practical components, franchisees receive ongoing state support from a skilled team of franchise experts.
Our retail outlets are also supported by United Network Suppliers (UNS), an ingredients supply operation that together with our online systems assist franchisees with organised production and cost-effective ingredient ordering. The Cheesecake Shop’s high average customer spend means franchisees also benefit from a business that can operate with as few as three full time staff.
The Cheesecake Shop believes in being the sweetest store in town and our focus is to help franchisees achieve this status in their store.
"I was looking for a lifestyle change so I wanted an easy business to run. Operating a Cheesecake Shop really is a piece of cake! There are very few staff so you don’t have too many management hassles, only a handful of suppliers and the recipes are so straight forward you don’t need to be a baker or a pastry chef to do them." - Christine McMahon - Franchisee, Southport QLD
"It's been a great little business; I've made lots of money. I'm only sorry I didn't buy my shop 10 years earlier." - Tom & Enid Finley - Franchisee, Rockingham WA
"We were looking for a change of lifestyle, looking for more interaction with people. The shop in which Pooja (our daughter) worked was offered to us for sale, but when we did our homework the TCS store looked a more attractive option. We are very happy in our new business and just love the compliments we get from our customers." - Purnima and Vinod Tailor - Franchisees, Bull Creek WA
