Harriet's Story

Born in Morristown, New Jersey Ms. Harriet’s introduction to cheesecakes came about after her sister who was studying in New York sent a newspaper clipping with a recipe for a French Vanilla cheesecake, that she challenged Harriet to make on her next visit home to California.

With no real baking skills or equipment, she recreated the recipe by hand. The rest as some say is history!

In 1983 Harriet’s Cheesecakes Unlimited was founded and made its home in Inglewood, California. With a young family to provide for and a lot to prove as a black businesswoman specializing in cheesecakes, to appeal to the predominantly black neighborhood she resided in, the now-infamous Sweet Potato Cheesecake was born.
