Behind the Buttercream

Built on the belief that the world deserved a better cookie, one made with the freshest ingredients and the utmost care, Cheryl’s opened its first retail store in Columbus, Ohio in 1981. Company founder, Cheryl Krueger, knew that her family’s original farmhouse recipes, handed down from her grandmother, Elsie, were better than anything else available for purchase, and she was determined to offer them to a wider audience.

Today, more than 30 years later, we still bake our famous cutout cookies according to those original recipes before hand-icing them with our renowned buttercream frosting, but as we’ve grown, so have our offerings. Along with our butter-rich cut-outs, we also serve up a wide variety of cookies in dozens of flavors, gourmet brownies, cakes, and a host of seasonal items, all made with the finest natural ingredients available.

Ohio residents and visitors can find our delectable baked goods at our popular retail stores in select Central Ohio locations, but our catalog and website are the easiest ways for customers nationwide to browse our extensive collections and find the perfect gifts to send to friends, family and loved ones, near and far.  Gift baskets, boxes and tins are thoughtfully designed for every season and every gifting reason, and come in a range of just-right sizes that allow you to celebrate one special person or more than one hundred. You’ll see and feel the quality in everything we do, from individually wrapping each item to our delightful presentation and 100%-satisfaction guarantee.

Our business and corporate clients are well served by our Wholesale Division and Business Gift Services which enable them to offer the world’s finest baked goods to their customers and clients. Just like our individual customers, they can choose from our wide selection of made-in-house baked goods as well as items from our wholly owned Mrs. Beasley’s Bakery, the Los Angeles icon best known for their Miss Grace Lemon Cake.

Cheryl’s is proud to be part of the 1-800-Flowers family of brands, which is and has always been committed to delivering smiles for every occasion.
