FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Tuesday was National Cheesecake Day and a very busy day for Fort Wayne bakery, Purple Mountain Cheesecakes.
The business makes cheesecake flavors ranging from Snickers to raspberry. Their most popular one is the turtle cheesecake. Purple Mountain currently has a food truck and delivers their product to restaurants like Casa Grille Italiano.
Now, they are moving into a new location at 1137 N. Wells Street. The century old building formally housed Jack and Johnny’s Restaurant. Owner Glenn Ellenberger says it’s an opportunity to grow the business and he’s excited about it.
“It will allow us to continue with our wholesale business, but in addition to that, we’ll have a place where people can come in and sit down and have a nice fresh piece of cheesecake,” said Ellenberger.
An opening date for the new location has not been announced.
