The restaurant that claims to have “something for everyone” will officially open its Queens location and first New York City outpost on Oct. 25.
QNS broke the news of the opening in March and the restaurant will open in a space once occupied by The Children’s Place and a Verizon Wireless store at Elmhurst’s Queens Center mall. According to the chain, the 8,100-square-foot space will have room for approximately 190 guests and will feature The Cheesecake Factory’s signature menu with more than 250 selections.
The restaurant will also carry more than 50 cheesecakes and desserts. The company is also looking to hire 285 staff members for positions such as line cooks, prep cooks, bartenders, cashiers, servers, dishwashers, bussers and hosts.
This will be the first New York City location for the cheesecake bakery-turned-restaurant. The closest Cheesecake Factory is located at Roosevelt Field Mall in Westbury, Long Island.
