If it is a regular cheesecake made with cream cheese, sugar, eggs, vanilla etc.. being high fat, it should freeze well. I'm thinking a more custardy ricotta cheesecake wouldn't fare so well.

I make a New York style cheesecake that freezes quite well. Wrap it tightly so no ice forms or freezer burn occurs.

Frozen cheese cake on a stick, dipped in chocolate!

Craig's brother used to make cheesecakes (cream cheese only, no ricotta) and sell them to a small local restaurant. They would cut them into individual servings, wrap tightly with plastic wrap and freeze. They'd take out a few each day to defrost so they'd be ready to serve, then pull some out throughout the night if they were having a run on desserts.

He did it just to make a little extra money plus he loved to cook and liked knowing people loved to eat his cheesecakes - triple chocolate (white, milk, dark layers) and pina colada were his most requested.
