CALABASAS HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Cheesecake Factory® is celebrating its favorite holiday – National Cheesecake Day – by donating $1 to Feeding America® for every slice of its more than 30 legendary flavors of cheesecake sold on Saturday, July 30, 2022.* The Cheesecake Factory will also introduce its newest flavor on National Cheesecake Day – Classic Basque Cheesecake. Created in San Sebastian Spain more than 30 years ago, Basque cheesecake is a very unique, crustless cheesecake with a burnt top and an ultra-creamy, custard-like center, and sweet caramelized notes. The Cheesecake Factory’s version is a classic recipe, covered with fresh berries and whipped cream.
In addition to the $1 per slice donation on all flavors sold on National Cheesecake Day, for every slice of Classic Basque Cheesecake sold July 31, 2022 through July 29, 2023, The Cheesecake Factory will donate 25 cents to Feeding America, the nation’s largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through a network of food banks.*
The Cheesecake Factory has donated more than $5.9 million to Feeding America since 2008 through the sale of its specially designated cheesecakes.
“The Cheesecake Factory is honored to commemorate National Cheesecake Day by continuing our longstanding support of Feeding America’s hunger-relief efforts,” said David Overton, Founder and CEO of The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated. “We are also pleased to mark this special occasion by introducing our new Classic Basque Cheesecake. It’s a completely different style of cheesecake than my mother’s Original recipe, and we are looking forward to adding it to our menu.”
*Donations made on slices sold at all The Cheesecake Factory restaurants in the U.S.A. including Puerto Rico.
