Cheesecake Factory Shepherd’s Pie
A Cheesecake Factory Copycat Recipe
The Cheesecake Factory story begins in Detroit, Michigan in the 1940’s. Evelyn Overton developed her “Original” Cheesecake and everyone who tried it, loved it. So much so that she decided to open a small Cheesecake shop, but she eventually gave up her dream to raise her family.
Fast forward to 1972, with their children grown, Evelyn and her husband Oscar move to Los Angeles to make one last attempt at owning their own business. With the last of their savings, they opened The Cheesecake Factory Bakery and began selling Evelyn’s cheesecakes to restaurants throughout Los Angeles.
With great foresight and intuition, their son David decided to open a restaurant to showcase his mother’s selection of cheesecakes. It was 1978 and he opened the first The Cheesecake Factory restaurant in Beverly Hills, CA. The restaurant was an immediate success and today there are more than 220 The Cheesecake Factory restaurants around the world.
