Cheesecake Factory celebrating National Cheesecake Day

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Thursday, July 30 is National Cheesecake Day and you’ve got an opportunity to get a slice at half the price.

All you have to do is head over to The Cheesecake Factory at Keystone at the Crossing on the north side of Indianapolis.

Patrick Fraley and Brandy Hoover, with the Cheesecake Factory, were on 24-Hour News 8 at noon Thursday to talk more about the “Any Slice, Half Price” deal for dine-in guests.

Diners can try their new Salted Caramel Cheesecake, and for every slice sold, the restaurant will donate 25 cents to help feed hungry Americans in our community.
