The Cheesecake Factory should open in the next few months at The Shops at Highland Village, according to a release July 24 from The Shops at Highland Village.

The details

The restaurant is expected to celebrate its opening in the fourth quarter of 2023.

“The Shops at Highland Village is thrilled to welcome The Cheesecake Factory as the newest addition to our center,” said Ravi Wadhwa, senior general manager at The Shops at Highland Village, in the release. “Having this national powerhouse brand join our portfolio is a significant win that will purposefully complement our unique tenant mix. Like many of our guests, we are counting down the days until this fan favorite opens its doors to our community.”

Zooming in

The Cheesecake Factory will be located in an approximately 9,700-square-foot space at 4100 Deer Creek, Ste. 110, near Francesca’s and White House Black Market, with plans to renovate the Southern courtyard near the new location into a drive-thru parking lot to facilitate an enhanced customer experience, the release stated. The addition of the new restaurant is expected to create more than 200 new jobs for the local community, officials said. Construction began a few weeks ago.

“The Cheesecake Factory is so pleased to be opening a restaurant at The Shops at Highland Village, allowing us to serve local residents and visitors alike,” said David Overton, founder, chairman and CEO of The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated, in the release. “The Cheesecake Factory has enjoyed being part of the greater Dallas area since first opening there in 1998, and we look forward to being part of the Highland Village community.”

The Cheesecake Factory, which offers American cuisine in addition to its famous cheesecake, began operations in 1978 in California.

Also of note

The Shops at Highland Village also recently welcomed three new tenants to the center: Cheeky Monkeys, Lovesac and Sleep Number. Lovesac and Sleep Number opened in May, and Cheeky Monkeys, a children’s playland, will open in September, the release stated.
