The TABC Has Investigated Cheesecake Factory 3 Times Since 2007.
David Overton opened the first Cheesecake Factory restaurant in Beverly Hills, CA, in 1978. The very first Cheesecake Factory to open outside of California was in 1992 in Washington, D.C. Since then the restaurant has grown to 210 restaurants worldwide with revenue of $2.276 billion in 2016.
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission conducted 3 investigations into allegations of improper service or handling of alcohol since the start of 2007.
Simply because a Cheesecake Factory location was investigated, it does not mean that they are a location that displays a pattern of violating TABC code. Conversely, if a location has been investigated and investigators determine that they are not in violation of TABC code, that does not mean that the alleged violation did not take place. At times, sufficient evidence required to prove that either criminal or administrative violations occurred is hard to come by. We are simply reporting the locations that were put on the TABC's radar for one reason or another by concerned citizens and law enforcement agencies.
