Overview
For more than 30 years The Cheesecake Factory has served more than just delicious food and cheesecakes, we helped our guests share lasting memories with family & friends.

The Cheesecake Factory created the upscale casual dining segment in 1978 with the opening of our first restaurant in Beverly Hills, CA. And even with close to 150 restaurant locations, we're just as unique today as we were back then!

Walk through our front doors and you'll know you're in for something special. With French limestone floors and decorative columns, hand-painted fabrics, contemporary lighting and an abundance of cherry wood, the lavish decor is just the beginning.

The Cheesecake Factory menu boasts more than 200 menu selections made fresh from scratch each day including Appetizers, Pastas, Seafood, Steaks, Salads, Sandwiches, and more. We recently introduced a new Small Plates and Snacks menu category including more than 15 new tastes that are perfect as a snack or pre-appetizer. Additionally, we feature specialty dishes like our popular Chicken Madeira, Miso Salmon, Cajun Jambalaya Pasta, and Luau Salad.

Our Story
Few people have achieved in their lifetimes what the Overtons accomplished during theirs. With a great deal of courage and determination, Oscar and Evelyn Overton realized their dream - to own a successful business.

Always known as an excellent cook, Evelyn created her Original Cheesecake recipe that everyone loved. By the late 1940's, she opened a small cheesecake shop in Detroit. In order to raise her two small children, David and Renee, Evelyn chose to put off her dream and gave up the shop. She moved her baking to a kitchen in her basement and continued to supply cakes to several of the best local restaurants. In 1971, with their children grown, Evelyn and Oscar, now in their early 50's, decided to move their cheesecake business to Los Angeles. With the last of their savings, they opened a 700 square foot store, "The Cheesecake Factory". Those early years were extremely lean and sometimes very difficult. Evelyn and Oscar often worked 18-hour days. Evelyn baked and managed the office while Oscar concentrated on selling the cakes and building new accounts.

Finding that Los Angeles loved their cheesecakes as much as Detroit, their reputation and sales grew, creating a need for a larger bakery. 1975 marked the beginning of the most creative and productive period of their business endeavors. With their new and improved bakery, Evelyn created over 20 varieties of her delicious cheesecakes and other fantastic desserts, which were sold to hundreds of wholesale accounts. Oscar purchased delivery trucks, hired drivers, expanded their cheesecake distribution from Santa Barbara to San Diego and developed additional out-of-state customers. Their tireless efforts, commitment to quality and innovative product development laid the foundation for The Cheesecake Factory's future success. In 1978, their son David founded The Cheesecake Factory restaurant in Beverly Hills, California. With little knowledge of how to run a full scale restaurant but lots of intuition into what makes a dining experience great, David set out to offer their guests an experience they wouldn't soon forget - generous portions with unlimited, inventive menu selections all made fresh with quality ingredients and served in a warm and casually comfortable setting. The restaurant was an immediate success! Just over 30 years later with close to 150 locations, the success of The Cheesecake Factory has even surpassed the Overtons' wildest dreams making The Cheesecake Factory a great American success story.
