What better way to celebrate the day AFTER tax day than with a celebration of the grand opening of The Cheesecake Factory at The Collection at River Park in Oxnard?
For over a year, rumors of The Cheesecake Factory opening the new location were buzzing, but it wasn’t until the ink was dry on the lease that Alethea Rowe, Senior Director of Public Relations and Global Branding, made the announcement official.
“Oxnard is our 201st location in the United States,” said Rowe. “When we look for a new location, we don’t just find a great mall, it’s also about finding the right space. This location in The Collection with the wonderful fountain, large, open space and lots of free parking just around back is exactly what we were looking for. It’s the perfect family friendly atmosphere. We are so excited to be opening our doors to this wonderful community.”
Hillary Brogan, a CDS supervisor at Costco in Oxnard, was thrilled to hear the news of The Cheesecake Factory coming to her hometown.
“I’ve always loved the food at The Cheesecake Factory,” Brogan remarked, “but Thousand Oaks is a thirty minute drive, so we rarely went. The Collection is only 5 minutes away, so now we can go right after work and enjoy all my favorites with my family and friends!”
The Collection location seats 148 inside the restaurant and an additional 78 on the outside patio. It’s slightly smaller than the Thousand Oaks location, so the menu is a bit smaller as well, but all the signature favorites are featured. And, of course there’s cheesecake.
LOTS and LOTS of cheesecake!Over 30 different flavors – or one every day of the month – are available to delight dessert lovers of every taste, and in addition have the opportunity to give back to the local food bank as well through The Cheesecake Factory’s Corporate Social Responsibility, including their “Flavor of the Year” program.
“One flavor is chosen every year to be used as a charitable contribution to Feeding America: the nation’s largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through a network of foodbanks. Food Share is the Ventura County network partner,” Rowe explained. “Since its inception in 2008, we’ve donated more than $4.3M to Feeding America through the sale of our specially designated cheesecakes. From now until July 29th, for every slice of Very Cherry Ghirardelli Chocolate Cheesecake sold, 25 cents will be donated to Feeding America. The new flavor is top secret and will be revealed on July 30, which is National Cheesecake Day!”
In addition to lunch and dinner, The Cheesecake Factory serves eggs and omelets all day long, and they also serve a weekend brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 10am – 2pm and a Happy Hour Monday through Thursday from 4 to 6 pm. with full size appetizers for only $6.95, along with a selection of signature cocktails.
Whether dinning inside the spacious restaurant, sipping incredible cocktails in the bar area, or enjoying the outside patio view of the fountain, a visit to The Cheesecake Factory not only offers guests a full eating experience, but full sensory pleasures as well.
