It was her passion for food and her intuitive sense of the marketplace that inspired Susan Axelrod to introduce quiche to a world unfamiliar with its rich textures and elegant flavors. Since setting up shop in her small family kitchen 40 years ago, the company she named Love and Quiches has become synonymous not only with quiche, but with delicious desserts of extraordinary quality. Today, these delectable desserts and quiches, including their authentic NY cheesecake, can be found in restaurants and retail stores around the globe.
Susan’s children remember coming home from school and cracking fresh eggs as their part in what has become the family business. Susan drove her van between her home and New York City, wholesaling her quiches to one restaurant, and one gourmet shop at a time. Before long, quiche became a restaurant staple. Desserts followed, at a customer’s request for sweets to equal the quality of her now famous quiches. The business steadily outgrew: Susan’s kitchen; her garage; a small, local storefront; and even our first factory. Decades later, we are in our present home, where we’ve been since the 1980’s, a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Freeport, New York.
As Love and Quiches Gourmet continues to grow in size and capability, our passion for food and our commitment to excellence remains constant and is reflected in the quality and consistency of our products. We uphold our longstanding tradition of baking from scratch, utilizing Old World recipes and top notch ingredients. Our outstanding roster of leading foodservice operators, food retailers and distributors worldwide grows larger each year. Our Dessert Partner® philosophy engages our customers in consultative, long-term relationships, many of which span 30 years or more — a testimony to our success.
