This is a busy week for The Eli’s Cheesecake Company.
On Thursday, September 22nd we have 3 special events occurring. In the morning, we will be hosting The National Honey Board and giving them a factory tour, which will include watching the making of our Honey Almond Cheesecake. Our honey is harvested by students from The Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences.
