The Cheesecake Shop was founded by brothers Robert and Warwick Konopacki in 1991. From humble beginnings in the back blocks of Sydney’s inner western suburb of Rozelle, the Konopacki brothers baked delicious cakes fashioned from’ Mamuska’, their Polish mother’s traditional recipes. Robert had entrepreneurial flair and experience in food while Warwick, a clinical psychologist by trade, brought a strong analytical mind that helped design and document the recipes and procedures.
Along the way the business has grown and evolved into a sophisticated and profitable modern enterprise. In addition to the franchising business, an ingredients supply operation was established, called United Network Suppliers, to support the retail bakeries. The business headquarters of the business is now located in an office and warehouse complex at Villawood in Western Sydney (NSW Australia) and new franchisees are trained in the on-site bakery and retail storefront.
Today, with 211 retail sites across Australia, New Zealand & United Kingdom, the brand is synonymous with immaculately presented and delicious cakes, loved by a generations of consumers.
