Meet the Cheesecake Ninja

Some say he's a cross between the Easter bunny and Santa Claus

Have you heard of The Cheesecake Ninja?

We heard he was assassinating cravings across southeast Missouri.

cheesecakeSo of course, we had to find out just who this man might be.

Heartland Weekend introduces you to Greg Franklin, the man some say is a cross between the Easter bunny and Santa Claus.

For a while now, he’s been traveling to various cities delivering miniature homemade cups of deliciousness.

Franklin’s current route includes stops in Cape Girardeau, Jackson, and Perryville, Missouri.

Somewhat like a paperboy, he packs up his car and brings the week’s flavor to restaurants and offices.

We’re talking flavors like key lime, fruity pebbles, and butter rum.

Franklin is always coming up with something new.



In fact, his latest venture includes a permanent location.

Franklin is opening a bakery located at 110 N. Jackson Street in Perryville, MO, right next to Mary Janes Burgers and Brews.

“We are super duper excited,” Franklin said.

Starting Dec. 15, you’ll officially be able to satisfy your sweet tooth. That’s when Franklin will officially open the doors.

Inside you will find gourmet cheesecake flavors, cookies and more.

Find something delicious Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Christmas.

After the holidays, you can indulge Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
