The Incredible Amount Of Money The Cheesecake Factory Makes
In A Year
By Nick Johnson
The Cheesecake Factory is known for its massive menu of 250 items, which includes over 30 types of their famous cheesecake. In addition to its menu, each restaurant is huge, ranging from 7,500 to 10,000 square feet, and the franchise is also economically enormous.
There are 240 Cheesecake Factory locations in the world, and Statista reports that they brought in over $2.9 billion in 2021. That was 50% more than what the chain made in 2020, although 2020’s low number can likely be attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On average, a Cheesecake Factory location in 2021 had over $11 million in sales, according to Statista. In 2021, Vox said the franchise’s quarterly profits were nearly $750 million, and according to the official Cheesecake Factory website, the average location made around $230,000 per week.
