Last night, Eli’s Cheesecake was featured on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer’s segment Made In America. The segment talked about American companies, such as Eli’s, who are exporting goods and doing business in countries in the Middle East, like Saudi Arabia. Business from the Middle East is helping American companies grow rapidly in a slow home market. At the end of the segment, David Muir presented Diane with a slice of Eli’s Cheesecake specially made all the way from Chicago.
