Sammy is an Atlanta native who attended and graduated from Westlake High School. In 2003, he decided to attend Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts School and pursue his passion for cooking and dreams of becoming a “Master Chef”. Sammy always had an extraordinary gift for taste. This special gift was unlocked when he whipped up his first cheesecake for a class assignment.
In addition to being a full-time student, Sammy also worked full time at the Hilton Atlanta Airport. After paying all of his monthly expenses, he didn’t have much disposable income and decided to sell his cheesecake to generate extra income. The people in the community loved it and with a single hand mixer, a large bowl, one 9 inch pan, and a “Dream” he baked utilizing his parents’ home. Sammy eventually expanded his menu to include not only cheesecakes, but red velvet, yellow chocolate, lemon, and other variety of traditional cakes.
By the time Sammy graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in 2005, the demand for his delicious desserts had grown tremendously. In 2006, he stepped out on faith and resigned from his job at the Hilton to follow his new passion for baking desserts. For years, he peddled cheesecakes and cakes out the back of his truck, bringing sweets by the slice into banks, car dealerships, and barbershops. Georgia Power, Morehouse School of Medicine, Marta Headquarters, Randstad Headquarters, and Cox Communications became some of his biggest clients. Eventually, his parents had to step in to help Sammy by doing the shopping, slicing cakes, calling customers, and delivering the cakes. In 2012, Sammy accomplished his dream and opened his store-front Sammy’s CheezeCake in East Point, GA.
The help and support from his parents, family, community, the opportunity to meet and receive words of wisdom from Truett Cathy, and his strong faith in “GOD” are some of the key contributors that help Sammy achieve his dreams. In 2014, he was featured in the Atlanta Magazine October and December editions as “The Best Baker you’ve never heard of”.
