Frequently Asked Questions - Faq

How are you handling COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in your locations?

Government food authorities advise us that transmission of COVID-19 through food (cake) is unlikely and there is no evidence of this occurring to date or with previous outbreaks of similar viruses such as SARS or MERS.

The following additional measures have been added to our strict food safety and hygiene practices to minimise the risk of spread:

• Increased scheduled cleaning and sanitisation of our bakery and shop front

• Removal of free sample product

• Washing and sanitising hands between service of every customer

• Our customer touch points are being regularly cleaned and sanitised such as EFTPOS terminal and door handles

• At your request, we can keep an additional distance from you. We are encouraging our team to maintain a 1.5m distance from customers where possible.

If you wish to minimise your time in our store, we strongly encourage you to place an order online for next day pick up.

Are Your Cakes Gluten Free?

Q. Do you have Gluten Free Cakes?

A. We have two Gluten Free Cakes available that are endorsed by Coeliac Australia and New Zealand. A Gluten Free Carrot and Orange Cake and a Gluten Free Chocolate Cake.

These products are made off-premises and are sold to the consumer in sealed packaging.

Q. Do you have any other Gluten Free Cakes?

A. No, we do not.

Q. Can you make me a special order Gluten Free Cake?

A. Unfortunately, no we cannot. Our bakeries contain a number of ingredients that contain gluten and there is risk of cross contamination.

Q. Do you have any cakes with non-gluten ingredients?

A. Yes we do. Our Pavlova, Flourless Apple and Pear Cake and Flourless Carrot Cake contain ingredients with no gluten.

However, they are made on-site in our bakeries. There is no guarantee that these cakes are gluten free due to cross contamination in our bakeries.

Does The Cheesecake Shop ethically source its ingredients?

The Cheesecake Shop is an established franchise system in the retail bakery industry. The Cheesecake Shop lays claim to a twenty-year food safety record and an enviable history of serving our valued customers with quality and affordable cakes and desserts. The Cheesecake Shop manufactures locally at each site from scratch ingredients (in the main) to ensure product freshness.

Within the constraints of a commercial enterprise, The Cheesecake Shop is just as concerned with ensuring that purchasing decisions consider the wider implications and are made in the best interests of its customers, the community and the environment.

In this regard ingredients and equipment is sourced from reputable suppliers who are selected preferentially including on the basis of their efforts to ensure that The Cheesecake Shop’s supply needs are produced and delivered in a way that avoids abuse or exploitation of workers, animals and the environment.

All the eggs used by The Cheesecake Shop are free range across its Australian Stores. In New Zealand, we have been hampered by supply issues of Free Range Eggs thus far. We have been negotiating with our supplier to move towards Free Range Eggs. We are currently making progress with the change and appreciate the patience and co-operation of our customers.

The Cheesecake Shop’s authorised suppliers are risk assessed to ensure the standard and quality of ingredients and manufacturing are at an acceptable level. Dictated by our values and in line with customer’s expectations we endeavor to ensure all sourcing is consistent with the principles of sustainability including a preference towards those suppliers that comply with the guidelines of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).

The Cheesecake Shop is a signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant, which is an Australian Federal Government initiative that aims to change the culture of business to facilitate the design of more sustainable packaging, increase recycling rates and to reduce packaging litter.

The Cheesecake Shop will not knowingly purchase ingredients, goods and services from suppliers that conduct their business in a way that causes significant damage to the environment. Where we do become aware of environmental concerns we will work with the supplier to find a solution to the problem. Failing this we will seek to source from an alternative supplier.
