NOVI, Mich. (WWJ) – Do you like cheesecake? With more than 150 restaurants nationwide, the Cheesecake Factory is about to open its first Michigan location on Tuesday, at Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi.

WWJ’s Beth Fisher stopped in on a training day for staff and dined on guacamole, some spaghetti, and original cheesecake with strawberries on top, which Fisher described as “delicious.”

Cheesecake Factory spokeswoman Alethea Rowe says if this restaurant is successful, they may open more in Michigan.

“We absolutely are,” Rowe said. “I think we typically take a very slow, wait-and-see approach when we go into a new market, and wait and hope that we’re popular, hope people like us and add additional locations, so that’s certainly our hope here.”

Rowe says there are 250 menu items with 35 different cheesecakes. The Ultimate Red Velvet is the most popular.

“With more than 30 cheesecakes , it’s hard to choose a favorite, but our most popular has been the Ultimate Red Velvet cheesecake for several years, said Rowe. “It’s amazing. “It’s layers of our original cheesecake, red velvet cake and the most ridiculous butter cream frosting you’ve ever had.”

Novi’s Cheesecake Factory will be the restaurant chain’s 164th location in the country.
