As reopening measures begin to take effect across all 50 states, The Cheesecake Factory announced the reopening of 65% of dining rooms nationwide by mid-June. The restaurant chain plans on reopening 124 The Cheesecake Factory dining rooms. These locations will seat guests at “limited capacity in accordance with local mandates.” The Cheesecake Factory already started opening dining rooms, bars, and patios in mid-May. According to a press release, roughly 25% of dining rooms, including 34 The Cheesecake Factory restaurants, have reopened at limited capacity. The restaurant chain plans on still practicing plenty of safety measures as more dining rooms open. Social distancing will be followed throughout all The Cheesecake Factory locations. Their dining rooms are typically between 7,500 and 10,000 square feet according to Nation’s Restaurant News, making it easier to spread out guests.
