    Kim Daly | City Hall Cheesecake - A Dessert Cafe with a Purpose

    If you have a sweet tooth, then City Hall Cheesecake is sure to delight with over 100 different cheesecake flavors, Double Doozie Cookies, parfaits, cheesecake cupcakes, coffee drinks, and more!
    But there’s a lot more to City Hall Cheesecake than just a bakery. As Kim Daly explains, “We are a ministry first and a business second.”
    About four years ago, Kim and Vance Daly bought City Hall Cheesecake. But with no business or restaurant experience, Kim Daly never imagined they would own a bakery business. 
    In fact, the inspiration to buy the bakery stemmed from the homeless ministry they run, Love Works 25:40.
    This is truly a heartwarming and inspiring story you won’t want to miss. So be sure to join me in this episode to learn more about City Hall Cheesecake and Kim and Vance Daly’s story.
