Shipping Info

Order cut-off time is daily at 12:00 a.m. CST, with the exception of our holiday schedule.

Some orders placed after 12:00 a.m. CST may ship the same day, especially during the
holidays. Due to the perishable nature of our cheesecakes and pies, we do not ship over the weekend.

Custom Packaging System

The safe timely arrival of your order is our number one priority. Our delicious desserts are shipped in custom packaging; packed inside a cooler with a refrigerant (either dry ice or gel packs) to keep it frozen from our bakery to your doorstep. A Tennessee cheesecake can travel thousands of miles and arrive in perfect condition, ready to eat because of our custom packaging system. Tennessee Cheesecake stands by our pledge that all of our desserts will arrive in the best possible condition to our customers. Check out one of our custom coolers below.

Shipping FAQs

Do you accept international orders or military addresses?

No, we are unable to ship to APO or FPO military addresses, U.S. Territories or international delivery locations at this time.

Do you ship to colleges/universities or hospitals?

Yes, we do accept deliveries to colleges, universities, and hospitals. Due to the nature of these types of institutions we cannot, however, guarantee delivery to on-campus college/university addresses or to other institutions that operate their own mail centers. To ensure freshness, cheesecakes must be delivered within a specific period of time after shipment. Orders that must be processed by college/university or other institutional mail centers are often delayed. Therefore, delivery to colleges/universities and hospitals is not recommended and cannot be guaranteed.

If you would like to ship to someone at this type of address we recommend coordinating with that person so that they can be sure to pick up their package on the day that it arrives at their particular mail distribution center. Just as easy - ship the item to the nearest Fedex location and have your recipient pick up their package there. If you have additional questions about this service, please give us a call, 1-866-205-9450.
