Wong explained she first started experimenting with cheesecake almost 20 years ago when she lived in Canada. She said she was on a “cheesecake kick” and was having trouble finding good cheesecake on store shelves. She decided to make her own and her ideas have continued to grow.

“I’ve always wanted to (open a bakery), but living back home didn’t allow me to,” Wong said.

She explained that when she was in Canada she was a single mom, raising two kids and had to work. She didn’t have the extra time to run a bakery. Wong moved to the Dayton area two-and-a-half years ago when she married her husband, Ryan.

CheezCake Lab offers five to six different cheesecake flavors each week for customers to order. Wong said she has an ongoing list of 50 flavors that she rotates. This includes vanilla bean, cookies n’ cream, maple bacon, chocolate lover’s, black cherry, brownie, apple crunch and matcha.

“We’re trying to win over people, expand their favorite pallets and push the boundaries of what cheesecake is,” Wong said.

Wong said her favorite part since starting this business is seeing people’s reactions to the cheesecakes.

“The reactions of people drive me to do more,” Wong said. “I love seeing people happy. It’s a great feeling.”
