National Cheesecake Day Deals and Other Discounts

One of the best surprises for National Cheesecake Day comes courtesy of the Cheesecake Factory, which is debuting a new menu item. But while the Cheesecake Factory might be the most famous name associated with the creamy, delicious dessert, it’s certainly not the only cheesecake house in town. Read on to find out about some of the best ways to score a deal on a tasty treat to mark the day.

The Cheesecake Factory

The Cheesecake Factory will celebrate by donating $1 to Feeding America for every slice of cheesecake, any variety, sold on July 30. In addition, it will roll out its newest flavor, Coconut Cream Pie Cheesecake. That’s coconut cheesecake, combined with vanilla custard and a chocolate layer spread into a coconut macaroon crust. For every slice of Coconut Cream Pie sold from July 31, 2021, to July 29, 2022, the restaurant will continue to contribute 25 cents to Feeding America.
