NOVI, Mich. (WXYZ) - Michigan's first Cheesecake Factory is now open for business in Novi!
Doors opened at 11:00 a.m Tuesday morning, marking the grand opening of the chain restaurant.
The 8,400 square foot restaurant is located at the Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi.
There's also good news for more than just cheesecake lovers; the restaurant says it has brought more than 280 new jobs to the Detroit area.
Nearly three dozen states have the restaurant, bakery and bar.
Although this is the state’s fist Cheesecake Factory, the restaurant chain has always had a Michigan connection.
“Having grown up in Detroit and watched my parents start their cheesecake business here in the 1950s, opening a Cheesecake Factory at Twelve Oaks feels like a true homecoming,” said David Overton, founder and CEO of The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated.
In addition to offering its signature cheesecakes, food and other desserts, you can also enjoy a full bar and specialty coffee drinks.
“The Cheesecake Factory will undoubtedly be a huge favorite with our shoppers, and we’re delighted that Twelve Oaks was selected as its first Michigan location,” said William Taubman, chief operating officer of Taubman Centers.
