Cheesecake Factory coming to Knoxville

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Prepare your sweet tooth - The Cheesecake Factory is coming to Knoxville. The popular restaurant, known for its heaping portions and eponymous desserts, will be moving into the West Town Mall this Spring, the Simon Property Group announced on Monday.

“We’re thrilled that The Cheesecake Factory is coming to West Town Mall,” said Abbey Harris, Simon’s area director of marketing and business development.

The Cheesecake Factory’s menu features more than 200 selections and more than 50 low calorie “SkinnyLicious®” selections – all made fresh, from scratch, in-house – as well as more than 50 signature cheesecakes and desserts.

“I know many Knoxville-area residents are familiar with this great concept from traveling in other parts of the U.S. and now to have it in our backyard is truly terrific.”

At just over 8,000 sq. feet, the new location will hold more than 200 guests. The diner will be outside the main entrance on the Morrell Road side of the property, next to the Tommy Hilfiger store.
