The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated has been recognized as the first restaurant company to be named one of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For in ten consecutive years, according to Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work.

The company ranked 47th on the list, which recognizes companies that create great work experiences for all employees from full and part-time hourly staff members through management. The prestigious list is largely determined by an anonymous employee survey that measures attributes describing an outstanding work experience including high levels of trust, respect, pride, communication and camaraderie, as well as the company’s broader community impact.

Honorees were selected based on their ability to offer positive experiences for employees regardless of position, race, gender, sexual orientation or work status.

“The Cheesecake Factory is incredibly honored to be named on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the tenth year in a row,” says David Overton, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated. “This year marks the 45th anniversary of opening our first restaurant in Beverly Hills and this award is such meaningful recognition of the very special culture we have strived to create throughout the last 45 years. I extend my sincerest appreciation to each of our nearly 42,000 staff members and managers for their continued dedication to absolute guest satisfaction and maintaining our culture while navigating the dynamic operating environment.”
