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.

Rahm Emanuel Celebrates his 51st Birthday with a Visit to Eli’s Cheesecake World

When he served as the Congressman of  9th Congressional District on Chicago’s northwest side, which includes Eli’s Cheesecake and Wright College, Rahm Emanuel was instrumental in finding a site in what is now the Wright Campus Business Park for Chicago Paper Tube & Can Company, a more than 100 year old company that was short on space and considering moving to Wisconsin. On Monday, which was also Rahm’s 51st Birthday, he toured the Chicago Paper Tube Facility and also toured Eli’s where we surprised him with a 51th Birthday Cake.  At Rahm’s request, the Birthday Cake was delivered to the St. Mary of Providence School, where the residents with developmental disabilities and staff enjoyed the Eli’s creation.
