Boyertown Cheesecake shop Semper Pie offers new take on sweet treats

A new business has launched in Boyertown this week. Semper Pie, a veteran-owned cheesecake company celebrated the occasion with a ribbon cutting Saturday afternoon.

Despite no previous experience, Crystal and Kevin Murphy started baking cheesecakes from their home on Franklin Street around mid-November during the pandemic.

“It started from the idea to bring a decent dessert for my mother-in-law’s Thanksgiving table. We made an apple pie cheesecake, then Kevin suggested we sell them on Facebook and we haven’t stopped since” said Crystal.

The name Semper Pie is a fun spin on “Semper Fi,” the all-time famous Marine Corp slogan, which means “Always Faithful.” Kevin served in the Marines and deployed overseas.

“Our commitment to serving those who serve us daily is the embodiment of our mission statement” explains Kevin.

Giving back to organizations that help veterans returning from deployments, first responders and those who support them can be achieved by making a purchase at Semper Pie; and proceeds from every sale helps these causes.

Semper Pie is located at 14 South Reading Avenue in Boyertown.
