Eli’s Cheesecake World is 16 years old!

Yesterday, October 15th, Eli’s celebrated World Food Day! It was 16 years ago that we had the opening ceremony for Eli’s Cheesecake World. Our people and family were joined by Illinois Governor Edgar, Chicago Mayor Daley, Cook County Board President John Stroger and  Alderman Tom Allen for the cutting of ceremonial giant Eli’s Cheesecake opening this new facility in the City of Chicago. At that time we employed about 100 people; today over 240 people. Back then we produced the equivalent of about 4,000 Eli’s Cheesecake’s a day; today over 18,000! Today we are proud to continue to support Feeding America and the Greater Chicago Food Depository with donations that will reach over 3.5 million people this year.
