UPDATED: Let them eat cheesecake

July 26. Originally announced almost a year ago, thanks to a building permit, The Cheesecake Factory will open in Birkdale Village Tuesday Aug. 8.

[Update] Permit issues have caused the postponement of the opening to Aug. 15.

The Cheesecake Factory has hired nearly 300 staff members for the new location, according to a press release.

The menu has more than 250 items including lower-calorie selections, all prepared from scratch in each restaurant, not to mention more than 30 cheesecakes.
