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.

The Eli’s Family Mourns the loss of our Dearest Friend – Bobby Hatoff, the Chairman of Allen Brothers Meats

Without Bobby Hatoff, there would be no Eli’s!

The dearest friend to Eli, the Schulman Family and the entire Eli’s Family, Bobby started doing business with Eli at Eli’s Stage Delicatessen on Oak Street in the early 1960’s. That business relationship  grew dramatically when my parents opened Eli’s the Place for Steak in 1966 on East Chicago Avenue.  When he walked through Eli’s the Place for Steak (and so many other top restaurants in Chicago), he always had kind words for the wait and kitchen staff asking about their children by name.  He was always the most generous tipper while giving so much more from his heart.

 

Eli’s was the first of a new generation of steakhouses which have changed the dining experience in America. Bobby was a “secret weapon” for Eli’s and so many restaurants and leading chains around the country. He knew meat so well and how an operator could maximize the customer experience while helping the operator be profitable.

 

When Eli passed away over 24 years ago, Bobby was there all that day and for every day after that for me. He was my Senior Advisor  giving great advice on sales, on management, on life and people.  He was never too busy to help. No one was more committed to the success of Eli’s as a Company and my personal success than Bobby. When there were challenges in business, it was time for dinner with Bobby at Filippo’s on Clybourn. By the time the evening was over, I felt much better as Bobby’s advice was always right on and gave me the energy that I needed to meet the challenges of the next day.

 

Bobby is irreplaceable!  We could not have gotten here without him and will commit to always leading our lives with his integrity, optimism and charity.   Bobby, we miss you so much!
