The Peach Cobbler Factory Opens in Merrillville

It’s time to get peachy in Merrillville.
The Peach Cobbler Factory celebrated its ribbon cutting Thursday, May 16, with officials from the Town of Merrillville and Crossroads Regional Chamber of Commerce in attendance.
Cheri and Cornelius Henderson, the owners of the business, will follow that with their grand opening celebration on Saturday, May 18, at their location at 610 W. 81st Ave.
The menu at The Peach Cobbler Factory features a wide variety of cobblers, banana pudding, cinnamon rolls, cookies, brownies, Belgian waffles, churro stix, and dessert flights. In addition to sampling the menu items, the grand opening celebration will feature a DJ and giveaways.
“It’s been a long time coming,” Cornelius Henderson said. “We’ve worked with some great partners, great folks here in the Town of Merrillville to get us to this point.”
The Hendersons said they’re delighted about opening The Peach Cobbler Factory in Merrillville, and they’ve put together a great staff from the Merrillville and Northwest Indiana area.
Like the Hendersons, Town Council President Rick Bella expressed enthusiasm about The Peach Cobbler Factory locating in Merrillville.
“Attending the openings of new, large construction projects in Merrillville is always exciting, as it showcases the town’s appeal to major companies,” Bella said. “Equally thrilling and significant, however, is celebrating the launch of a small business that has transformed a previously closed location into something entirely new. Both events highlight the vibrant growth and revitalization of our community.”
Besides offering mouthwatering desserts and beverages, Cheri and Cornelius Henderson said they will be involved in the community, supporting Merrillville schools and other organizations.
“I am thrilled for Merrillville residents Cheri and Cornelius Henderson as they embark on their new business venture,” Bella said. “The Peach Cobbler Factory is a fantastic addition to our town, offering residents a delightful place to enjoy delicious daily treats. I wish them great success in this exciting endeavor.”
