The Cheese­cake Fac­tory to open in Toronto

Toronto Star - - BUSINESS - EVE­LYN KWONG STAFF RE­PORTER

Now Drake — and the rest of Toronto — will no longer have to cross the bor­der for a sweet taste of The Cheese­cake Fac­tory.

The Amer­i­can restau­rant chain, no­table for a shout-out in the Toronto rap­per’s song “Child’s Play,” will make its Cana­dian de­but when it opens its new lo­ca­tion at York­dale Mall. The restau­rant, known for its calo­rie-laden menu, is ex­pected to open in the fall.

“For nearly 40 years, the Cheese­cake Fac­tory has been known for cre­at­ing de­li­cious, mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ences for tens of thou­sands of Cana­di­ans vis­it­ing the U.S.,” said David Over­ton, chair­man and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of the restau­rant chain.

“We are now de­lighted to be ex­pand­ing into Canada.”

The first Cheese­cake Fac­tory restau­rant opened 1978 in Bev­erly Hills and has since ex­panded to a chain of 200 restau­rants world­wide.
