Chrisoula Athanasios Hulion, owner of Chrisoula’s Cheesecake Shoppe, native of Pensacola, FL
grew up in the restaurant business, with dad Spero Athanasios owning Boy on a Dolphin on
Pensacola Beach. “I was the dessert maker in the family,” Hulion said. “Growing up in the restaurant
business has given me an appreciation of food and people. I want everyone to enjoy the
cheesecakes with their families and friends.”
Chrisoula began making cheesecakes, baklava and Greek desserts while still young, then began
baking for Athanasios’, Café 22, downtown Pensacola. “I started making cheesecakes and baklava
and I got a really good response,” Hulion remembers, so she decided to start a business to bake for
restaurants and offer her delights to the general public. “We use only quality ingredients.”
Chrisoula opened a storefront in 2007 at 3101 E Cervantes St and then in 2010 decided to have her
cheesecakes available online and supply local grocery stores and restaurants. Her cheesecakes are
comparable to the authentic New York cheesecakes and have been requested from as far away as
You might say cheesecake is in the family DNA. Hulion’s father was born on the Greek Isle of Samos,
which is credited as the birthplace of cheesecake around 800 B.C.
Chrisoula’s cheesecakes are available in small (2-4people); medium (6-8 people.) and
large, (10-12 people), and large samplers of cheesecakes of the day (10 slices). You can also get
one dozen mini cheesecakes or half a dozen.
In November 2014 a new Storefront opened at 236 West Garden Street. "We appreciate all of our
customers support through the years! It was time to open a storefront again!" Chrisoula's husband
Tony Hulion left his corporate job to assist in managing the all new cheesecake shoppe and cafe -
