A new restaurant is coming to Orem — one that will be familiar to Salt Lake County diners.
The Cheesecake Factory has announced that it’s opening a new location at University Place mall, at 575 E. University Parkway, this fall, according to a news release. This will be the upscale casual dining establishment’s first location in Utah County.
The restaurant, which is known for its huge menu with more than 250 items and more than 30 cheesecakes, will be located next to Dillard’s and Itto Sushi, the release stated. Construction will begin immediately.
“The Cheesecake Factory is very pleased to be opening a restaurant at University Place, allowing us to serve Utah County families and visitors,” David Overton, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated, said in a statement. “The Cheesecake Factory has enjoyed being part of the greater Salt Lake City area since first opening there in 2007, and we look forward to being part of the community.”
There are two locations of The Cheesecake Factory in Salt Lake County — at City Creek Center in downtown Salt Lake City, and at Fashion Place in Murray, according to the restaurant’s website. The new location in Orem will be the third in Utah.
The Cheesecake Factory opened its first restaurant in 1978 in Beverly Hills, California, according to the release. The restaurant now has 210 locations in the United States.
