History of The Cheesecake Factory

Today, there are over 200 Cheesecake Factories in operation, from California to Hong Kong, and is the most widely-known maker of cheesecakes. With its elegant interiors and extensive menu, it’s no wonder that customers will often wait sometimes two hours just to get a table!

But how did this American classic become such a renowned and well-loved restaurant? And who came up with that incredible original cheesecake recipe in the first place?

Perhaps unsurprisingly, The Cheesecake Factory has a history as rich as their signature cheesecakes.

Cofounder Evelyn Overton was living in Detroit, Michigan in the 1940’s with her husband Oscar (the other half of the dynamic Cheesecake Factory duo) when she came across a recipe in the local paper that would inspire her to whip up her own “Original” Cheesecake recipe. This rich and creamy dessert captivated her friends and neighbors, and thus planted the dream of running her own bakery that would specialize in her cheesecake creations.
Unfortunately, the Mr. and Mrs. Overton had to put the dream on hold so they could raise their two kids, and the baking equipment was relegated to the basement where Evelyn could still run a small business from her little Detroit house.

With cream cheese as the main ingredient, Evelyn’s cheesecakes proved to be so popular that 25 years later, she and Oscar were able to move to Los Angeles and open the bakery of their dreams as soon as her kids were grown.

Evelyn continued to bake and manage their new office, while Oscar focused his energy on sales. Even their daughter Renee helped with baking at night after she got off work for the evening.

Their son David, on the other hand, had a dream of his own. He wanted to be a drummer and was able to attend Wayne State University in Detroit with the money he had earned playing the drums professionally throughout high school. Even a one-year stint at a San Francisco law school couldn’t shake him from his musical ambitions.

Perhaps it was the smell of cheesecake wafting from his parents’ “Cheesecake Factory” bakery, but David eventually made his way to the cheesecake paradise and opened the first Cheesecake Factory restaurant that would showcase all of his parents’ incredible dessert recipes.

There’s nothing like a delicious dream come true!

I'm a big fan of the Cheesecake Factory! Their menu is so huge, and everything I've tried is so yummy. My favorite has to be the sweet brown bread they bring before your meal! A gluten free version of that bread would make my life complete.
