As states begin to relax restrictions in response to COVID-19, many stores, small shops and restaurants are starting to allow customers inside once again. Of course, social distancing measures are still in place, and there will be some permanent changes to how restaurants operate from now on.
It’s no secret that we all want to go back to normal as soon as possible, but it’s also important for us to stay safe and healthy. The CDC has released strict guidelines for restaurants and bars who wish to reopen to the public. One of these restaurants (and we’re so excited!) is The Cheesecake Factory!
When Will Dining Rooms Start Opening?
According to Nation’s Restaurant News, “A quarter of The Cheesecake Factory Inc.’s restaurants have reopened dining rooms as of June 2nd as local coronavirus restrictions allow.” That means your local Cheesecake Factory might already be allowing customers inside! We recommend calling ahead to make sure before you enthusiastically make your way over, though.
As for the rest of the closed locations, the company says that “[Cheesecake Factory] expects to have about 65% of dining rooms across its concepts that closed due to COVID-19 reopened with limited capacity by mid-June, including an expected 124 Cheesecake Factory restaurants.”
This is amazing news for people who love cheesecake.
It’s Time to Study the Menu
124 locations is quite a lot, so keep an eye on your local Cheesecake Factory restaurant to see exactly when it reopens. Don’t forget to practice safe techniques during your visit, too. Luckily, the chain is known for its large-capacity dining areas, and will be able to host a plenty of diners while still keeping a safe distance.
