As part of the City Creek Center in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, The Cheesecake Factory restaurant is a popular place to dine out. The atmosphere of the area is inviting, and the restaurant is convenient. It has an extensive menu with all types of food choices besides the signature dessert of delicious cheesecakes.

The Cheesecake Factory has a long history in the United States. A woman named Evelyn Overton found a recipe in her local Detroit newspaper in the 1940s. It inspired her to create the "Original" cheesecake. People loved her recipe so much that she decided to open a small bakery. She closed her business eventually to focus on raising her two children. She moved her baking equipment to a kitchen in her basement so she could continue to sell cheesecakes to some of the best restaurants in her town.
Evelyn and her husband moved to Los Angeles in 1972 to try one last time to have their own business. They used their savings to open The Cheesecake Factory Bakery. They sold cheesecakes to restaurants throughout the Los Angeles area.
Their son David opened a restaurant in Beverly Hills in 1978. He wanted to showcase his mother's cheesecakes. He thought that a restaurant with an extensive dessert menu would be a hit, and he was right. There was a line out the door on their opening day. Forty years later, the customers are still coming.
