THE CHEESECAKE FACTORY BAKERY®
We own and operate two bakery production facilities, one in Calabasas Hills, California, and one in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, where we produce approximately 70 varieties of cheesecakes and other baked desserts based on proprietary recipes.
The primary role of our bakery operations is to produce innovative, high quality cheesecakes and other baked desserts for sale at our restaurants and those of our international licensees. Vertical integration of this vital part of our brand gives us control over the creativity and quality of our desserts and is also more profitable than buying from a third party. We also leverage our brand identity and profitably utilize our bakery production capacity by selling cheesecakes and other baked products to external foodservice operators, retailers and distributors.
