Our very own Chef Ashley T. was recently named to The Shelby Report’s 2022 Women of Influence in the Food Industry list! Not only was Chef Ashley included on this prestigious list, she is the only chef to be honored! The Shelby Report is a national industry publication that’s similar to Nation’s Restaurant News. Unlike Nation’s Restaurant News, however, The Shelby Report embraces all aspects of the food service industry with a heavy emphasis on the food supply chain. Other award recipients ranged from presidents and CEOs of major corporations to senior managers and directors of hospitality IT departments, making Ashley’s recognition all the more outstanding. Congratulations, Ashley!

We're excited to share that PEOPLE Magazine has recognized The Cheesecake Factory as one of 100 Companies that Care for the second consecutive year! PEOPLE highlighted our Nourish Program in which we regularly donate excess food from our restaurants to local non-profits. In 2021 alone, we donated more than 662,000 pounds of food. We've also donated nearly $6 million dollars to Feeding America since 2008 through the sale of our designated cheesecake. This is all made possible because of our wonderful staff. We're so proud of all the good they do every day, from the memorable moments for guests, to the delicious food that reflects their passion for excellence to giving back to their local communities.
