I consider myself lucky to live in an area where growth and progress occur daily. And, I especially love to hear of new locations of restaurants opening. A famous restaurant with a big menu is opening a new North Carolina location. Nationwide chain The Cheesecake Factory announced plans to open in Huntersville, North Carolina’s Birkdale Village later this year. The South Park location in Charlotte opened in 2002 and remains a popular spot. According to Charlotte Business Journal, North American Properties plans the new location for 8701 Townley Road. The 9500 square foot space formerly housed The Gap. Although I used to visit The Cheesecake Factory in Charlotte quite a bit, I admit it’s been a while. As far as chains go, I enjoy the extensive menu. But, I also admit sometimes being a bit overwhelmed by the 250+ choices of menu items. However, I like that such a wide variety of dishes allows anyone in your party to find something they enjoy no matter their tastes.
My favorite go-to dish is a chipotle chicken over penne with asparagus. It has just a bit of a kick. Of course, we always ordered some cheesecake, even if it was to go. The Red Velvet Cake Cheesecake is a solid choice among the other dozens. Anyway, say what you will about chain restaurants. But, The Cheesecake Factory tends to draw a crowd wherever they go. So, I bet the Birkdale Village spot will as well. North American Properties continues to focus on developing the 250,000 square foot space of retail, apartments and offices off Sam Furr Road. As of now, $20 million has been invested in the mixed use development. We plan to keep our eyes peeled for that famous restaurant with the big menu to open soon!
