If there is a food more perfect in the world than cheesecake, then I don't know what it is, which is why it's so amazing to have an entire restaurant chain dedicated to this delicious dessert. Of course, there are also appetizers, salads, pizza, pasta, seafood and meat entrees among the more than 250 menu items, but with a selection of over more than 40 different types of cheesecake to choose from, it's hard to think of anything else. The Cheesecake Factory was founded by Evelyn Overton and her husband, who originally sold her popular homemade cheesecakes to other restaurants. In 1978, her son opened the first Cheesecake Factory restaurant, and the chain now boasts over 200 locations around the world. If you can't make it in to enjoy a delectable dinner and dessert, you can always order a cheesecake online and have it shipped directly to your door.
