Desert Storm veteran starting dessert storm on Seventh Avenue

Historic Seventh Avenue, which has gained two microbreweries, two pizzerias and a brandy bar over the past two years, is about to get dessert.


Terry Young, a 1986 graduate of Hendersonville High School and U.S. Army veteran of Desert Storm, plans to open Sweet Thangs Cheesecake and Bakes on May 25 and hopes to have a grand opening on the Fourth of July. Besides cheesecake, he plans to serve Hershey’s ice cream, frozen yogurt, brownies, cookies and cupcakes. The baked items will be made on site.

He plans now to be open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. but wants to see if the brewery crowd will stop by later in the evening. “We’re going to try to let the customer dictate the hours,” he says.
