Great Comments About Eli’s People from a Group from Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Subject: Excellent Customer Service

My name is Cydnee Sims and I am the Program Coordinator at the Chapel Hill Senior Center located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I wanted to let you know how much my senior group and I enjoyed our tour and cheesecake. The tour guide, Hilda, was outstanding. She was professional, articulate and personable. I mentioned that one of my seniors were celebrating their birthday and she came out to our tour bus with a slice of cheesecake with a candle to help us celebrate. What a joy that was. Also, my initial contact with Korey Grace was superb!

Korey was just as professional and he made sure all the logistics were handled for my group. I just wanted to let you know that you have a fine staff and if there is any award or incentive for stepping up to the plate, Hilda and Korey deserves a pat on the back.

Thank you for your time.

Eli’s Cheesecake honored to be selected by Illinois Senators Durbin and Obama as part of their wager with their North Carolina counterparts over the NCAA Basketball Championship

Illinois and North Carolina Senators Place Modest Wager on Big Game

The University of Illinois and the University of North Carolina Play Monday


WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL), Barack Obama (D-IL), Elizabeth Dole (R-NC) and Richard Burr (R-NC) put their pride and their appetites on the line Monday by making a wager that pits Illinois Horseshoe sandwiches and cheesecake against North Carolina barbecue.

Obama and Durbin announced that when the Illini win the NCAA Championship game, the North Carolina Senator will owe them North Carolina barbecue with all the fixings. If the Tar Heels win, the Illinois Senators will begrudgingly hand over delicious Horseshoe sandwiches from D’Arcy’s Pint in Springfield and a special Illini orange cheesecake from Eli’s Cheesecake Company in Chicago.


“The only words sweeter than ‘Final Four’ are ‘National Champion,’” Obama said. “The Illini have played like champions all season. Now it’s time to make it official.”


“Last game the Illini demonstrated yet again why they’ve been ranked the number-one college basketball team in the country all season,” said Durbin. “After tonight, I’m confident Coach Bruce Weber and the Fighting Illini will be the ‘National Champions.’”


The Illini and the Tar Heels square off Monday, April 4 at 8:21 PM CT in St. Louis, Missouri.
