How the Cheesecake Factory defied the restaurant industry’s rules of success

The Cheesecake Factory’s menu is notoriously extensive, with over 250 items spread across 20 pages. The dishes range from sandwiches to pastas to, of course, cheesecakes. What sets the menu apart are the personal endorsements from unknown individuals attached to certain dishes, giving it a unique touch. The restaurant’s decor is opulent and extravagant, with a mix of styles borrowed from around the world. Despite breaking all the rules of the restaurant industry, the Cheesecake Factory has become a beloved chain and a go-to destination for many. Its popularity can be attributed to its nostalgic appeal, variety of options, and commitment to freshly cooked food.
