About Us

A Brief History

image693

 Since 1974, Cheesecake, Etc. Desserts has been a small, family-owned business based in Miami Springs, Florida. It all started with Bill Wolar, a former salesman who quit his job when the company he was working for was undergoing some major expansion. At that time Bill decided to take his livelihood under his own hands by entering the baking business. During those days he was playing around with his wife’s uncle’s recipes for delicious cheesecakes until he came up with his own favorite variations. The Wolars loved to entertain friends and family and one day one of his guests asked him to bake cheesecakes for his sandwich shop. That was the beginning of what later became Cheesecake Etc. Desserts.
With the passing of the founder, the Irsula Family, which founded and operates Obem Foods, Inc, decided to keep the business in the same location and running under the same basic name and philosophy with a few technological upgrades to comply with 21st Century vendors and clients and to be ahead of the always-evolving health and safety requirements to produce wholesome desserts.

Obem Foods philosophy has also involved treating our associates, vendor and clients with respect and it shows as the average tenure of our employees is 14 years. We not only say that our employees are our most valuable resource, we prove it.

The Key Lime Pie was a second addition to the product line after the cheesecakes. It was a natural addition to our line as a product that always comes to mind when thinking about Florida desserts. The phrase “Florida Key Lime Pie” was coined in the company and it was  registered by the company with the State of Florida. So we bake the official “Florida Key Lime Pie” and when you taste it, you know that you have found the real “Florida Key Lime Pie”. Obem Foods, Inc. is a father and son business committed to assure the business continues to thrive by bringing innovative products consumers want to enjoy. With the help of their valuable employees, we continue with the commitment of producing wholesome and high quality products at competitive prices to meet the needs of commercial and retail buyers in South Florida and beyond.

Some of our original flavors, such as the Guava, Mango and Oreo® flavors, remain our most popular, but we are always open and on the lookout for changes in the consumer appetite and convenience. 

From our kitchen to yours...

Chefs constantly seek innovative ways to keep costs low while still offering top quality. Most professional kitchens simply cannot afford the added time and cost associated with hand-prepared their multiple dessert offerings.  Oftentimes, professional kitchens rely on the help of small, custom-made, productions for their baked products and desserts.  Our flexible and customizable production line is here to meet your needs for delicious and cost-conscious desserts..
