The Cheesecake Factory at Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi

The beloved food chain is opening a spot right here in our neck of the woods Aug. 13, 2013

The delicious dreams of locals are finally coming true: The Cheesecake Factory is coming to town. This scrumptious spot opens its doors Aug. 13 at Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi.

The Cheesecake Factory

Michigan has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of The Cheesecake Factory – heck, there was even a Facebook petition created to speed up the process. It features not only 30-plus flavors of the delectable signature dessert, but also a full menu of more than 200 selections, including pastas, pizzas, salads and sandwiches.

"The generous portion sizes are actually rooted in Detroit," says Alethea Rowe, TCF's senior director of public relations and brand management. In fact, CEO David Overton is an area native. "(He) remembers going out to eat with his family and wanted to create a place where people could share, like when he was a child."

How customers feel when they step inside is key, she adds: "We think it is really important to incorporate a friendly staff to add to a welcoming, high-energy atmosphere."

The eclectic ambience given off by hand-painted murals, cherry wood tables and Italian marble floors creates an experience great for date night or family dining.

We're not sure if they take reservations at this point. The best bet is to call and see if they take them, and if they do, definitely make one! The restaurant is very busy so far.
