14 Things You Need to Know Before Eating at The Cheesecake Factory
1. It all began from a1940s newspaper clipping.
Evelyn Overton used a recipe she found in the paper to craft her own "Original" cheesecake that everyone knows (and is totally obsessed with) today. After that, she opened up a small shop in her basement Detroit, MI.
2. The first official outpost opened in 1972.
The Los Angeles location was called The Cheesecake Factory Bakery and it wasn't until 1978 that Overton's son, David, debuted the first iteration of The Cheesecake Factory in Beverly Hills with a dessert-forward menu.
3. There are nearly 200 locations today.
The chain has expanded to 39 states and five countries, but continues to open more locations regularly, including highly anticipated locales in New York City, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
4. It's one of the best companies to work for.
According toFortune, the Cheesecake Factory ranked as #92 on the magazine's 2014 list and was the only L.A.-based company to make the cut. Before that, the magazine slated it as the number 6 most-admired company in the food industry in 2013.
5. You can send someone a slice of cheesecake on Twitter.
The Cheesecake Factory offers a tweet-enabled gift-card service that lets customers purchase gift cards, write a personal message, and then the brand will pass it along to your friend via Twitter.
6. There are 30 different types of cheesecake to choose from.
And the most popular ones are White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle and Dulce De Leche Caramel.
7. Your cheesecake comes from one of two bakeries.
With more than 700 crew members combined the Calabasas, CA and Rocky Mont, NC facilities churn out sweets for the entire company to serve in its restaurants. And there's Tiramisu, too!
8. Some of the menu items are crazy-high in calories.
We love the warm apple crisp and peanut-butter cup cheesecake as much as the next person, but they each contain more calories than you should consume in an entire day.
9. The restaurant almost always has a deal going on.
Whether it's National Cheesecake Day, social media giveaways, or just a simple sale, the Cheesecake Factory just really wants to let you eat cake. (Right now, the brand is partnering with Coca-Cola to send someone to Las Vegas.)
10. Your cake always arrives with an intricate garnish.
Delicate scribbles of caramel sauce, perfectly piled dollops of whipped cream, tons of crumbled graham crackers ... you get the idea.
11. You can eat your favorite dessert and your favorite candy, too.
The chain has partnered with brands like Snickers, Reese's, and even Oreo to bring you authentic riffs on your favorite sweets and snacks (much like our amazing Kit Kat brownies).
12. Brown bread makes for the most epic menu hack.
The renowned pre-dinner snack—always served warm and toasty in a bread basket—can be subbed in for the traditional bread options on the club sandwich or any sub. And it's heavenly.
