About Adam Matthews Bakery

Established 1983

We specialize in rich and flavorful heritage style cakes.

Adam Matthews was founded in 1983 by Adam Matthew Burckle. Adam established Adam Matthews with one oven, a baker’s helper, and his mother’s time-tested family recipes. That is when the Adam Matthews Famous Original Cheesecake was born. Since then, Adam Matthews has sold more than 10 million cheesecakes alone. Over the years Adam Matthews has expanded the scope of its operation, adding retail locations, wholesale accounts, and a wide variety of southern style baked goods, desserts, and confections.

Today Adam Matthews Baking Company (AMBC) services wholesale accounts nationwide in addition to 9 retail storefronts in the Louisville, KY, and Indianapolis, IN areas. Over the years, our business has grown as has our facility. We recently completed a large capital investment project at the bakery to completely overhaul our infrastructure and equipment. The bakery is now equipped with all new washdown panel walls, stainless steel floor drains, micro-resistant epoxy flooring, a new boiler for plant steam, renovated on-site freezers, a multi-function depositing line, a new multi-function extrusion line, and new packaging equipment. Adam Matthews Baking Company is a GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) certified manufacturer under SQF, achieving an “Excellent” score in the top 8% of all US Food Manufacturers. Additionally, we are a Kosher Certified manufacturer producing under the Kosher supervision of the Kof-K Kosher agency. We are also a Kentucky Proud manufacturer.

Adam Matthews Baking Company is a widely known name in bakeries and freezers across the country. We are well known as the home of our famous original cheesecake, as well as the Kentucky Woods Bourbon Barrel Cake, and the Cayman Cove Spiced Rum Cake. Our Kentucky Woods Bourbon Cake comes packaged in a real wood barrel and is a nod to our Kentucky Bourbon Heritage. Located in Louisville, KY, the heart of Bourbon Country, our suite of Bourbon Baked Goods has been a hit that allows us to show off our Kentucky roots in both flavor and appearance. You can now purchase our Signature Bourbon Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie, a Bourbon Caramel Cheesecake, or our Kentucky Woods Bourbon Barrel Cake. All our items come in unique packaging, and we can add a personal touch for you, your business, or as a gift for someone in your life!

Our bakery, and experienced bakers, continue to produce delicious southern style desserts every day. Our products are hand crafted with a personal touch. Each item we produce uses premium ingredients and is thoughtfully handmade from start to finish. We take great pride in the quality and taste of all our items – from pies and cakes, to our variety of ice creams and confections, to icings, puddings, and fillings, to brownies, cookies, and more! Please enjoy one of our homemade dessert items and taste the Adam Matthews difference!
