We're a family business in Ringoes, New Jersey, run by me, Janet Maddalena, and my sons, Gene Junior, and Jeffrey Maddalena. We couldn't make it happen without the rest of our dedicated, talented and hard working staff.
My late husband and I started out as a small baking company in 1982 with Gene Senior's vision to create gourmet CheeseCakes with uncompromising quality ingredients. Tiered and decorated wedding CheeseCakes were in demand in the early 80's. Our little start-up operation expanded to wedding receptions and catering for private and corporate events. Our brand took root, hence - Maddalena's CheeseCake & Catering.
As a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Gene Senior wanted the visual appeal of CheeseCakes to complement the texture. He built revolving ovens to bring this about. Maddalena's CheeseCakes are a feast for the eyes and belly. This vision of excellence carries through in our catering too. We're so thankful to Gene Senior for his vision. After a long struggle with his health, he passed away in 2009. He's deeply missed. We keep his memory alive by nurturing the business he worked so hard to build.
