The famous restaurant chain has long been a celebrity-backed establishment
Let's hear it for the Cheesecake Factory!
The restaurant chain, known for its impressively long menu, has been a celebrity favorite for years. Dating back to Kris Jenner's shoutout in her 1985 music video "I Love My Friends," famous faces have not shied away from sharing their love for the eatery.
More recently, fans noted that Travis Kelce's outfit choice even seemed to resemble the restaurant's striped to-go bag.
Before Kris Jenner became reality TV royalty, the momager made a now-iconic music video to celebrate her 30th birthday in 1985 for the song, "I Love My Friends." In the video, she runs through all the things she and her pals enjoy, which includes none other than the Cheesecake Factory.
As far as a favorite meal, Kathy said she prefers the meatloaf while Rick “really likes the chicken [alfredo]. And then also the one that you dip with the sauce.”
“All their food is good," she added, while admitting she hadn't recently ordered the cheesecake itself. “Actually, you walk in there, and there are people. We love that! We don’t want to sit in a restaurant with nobody in the room."
Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift and Emily Osment
While taking a look back at her life through her "Used to Be Young" video series on TikTok, Miley Cyrus used the time to share the story behind an iconic 2009 photo. The shot, which is from the night of the Hannah Montana: The Movie premiere, sees Cyrus looking cozy in sweatpants and Uggs while pals Emily Osment, Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato are in dresses and full glam.
“Me and Emily and Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato are going to the Cheesecake Factory,” she laughed, explaining their destination. “These are some classy ladies.”
"It’s owned by Cheesecake Factory," she told the interviewer when asked about the lesser-known brand. "It’s not fancy in price or menu. There’s just a lot more gold leafing. Cheesecake Factory is great. It should have Michelin stars."
Back in 2022, Cardi B proposed that her alcohol-infused whipped cream brand, Whipshots, should join forces with the Cheesecake Factory for a sweet drink.
"Cheesecake Factory …let’s do a whipshots collab …..I already like y’all cocktails let’s do like a Irish cream drink with whipshots," Cardi B responded to a tweet from from the restaurant. No word on whether or not it will someday make the menu.
After a video went viral slamming the restaurant as a first date location, Sunny Hostin stepped in to share her love for the brand.
"I want to stand up for the Cheesecake Factory ‘cause I go there every week," The View host said, explaining that her daughter Paloma has "ACT Prep and there’s a Cheesecake Factory five minutes away."
Hostin added that her fellow co-host Sara Haines also enjoys a trip to the restaurant now and again, saying, "Sara and I agree that they make the best dirty martini."
According to Ireland Baldwin, the complimentary bread at the Cheesecake Factory is more than just delicious. Back in 2019, the model shared a selfie on Instagram sporting a mesh-detailed bra along with the message, “Been eating a lot of brown bread at cheesecake factory and it’s going to my boobs,” adding in the caption, “#lifehack.”
In the 2016 music video for the rapper's song "Child's Play," Drake is seen out on a date gone wrong with his fictional love interest, played by Tyra Banks. After their fight plays out in the dining room of what is presumed to be a Cheesecake Factory, Drake begins the song, later rapping, "Why you gotta fight with me at Cheesecake? You know I love to go there."
Bonus: Travis Kelce
In January, people were quick to spot a striking resemblance between Travis Kelce's pregame look and the chain's takeaway bag.
On an episode of the New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce podcast, which the Kansas City Chiefs star hosts with his brother Jason, he shared that the shirt was just "laying around" when he decided to pair it with a custom suit by Teddy von Ranson.
Jason chimed in to say that while he saw the resemblance to the Cheesecake Factory bag, he felt like the outfit was reminiscent of something out of Wes Anderson's comedy movie The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
"That’s what I’m saying. If I was in a Wes Anderson film … I’m just going to go ahead and say it, this is my pitch to get in a Wes Anderson film," Travis added.
