GREENSBORO, N.C. — The much-anticipated opening of The Cheesecake Factory at 3124 W. Friendly Ave. is Tuesday.

The new restaurant is at the intersection of Friendly Avenue and Pembroke Road at Friendly Center. It is approximately 8,150-square feet and seats approximately 220 guest indoor and out.

The Greensboro location hired 255 staff members prior to a series of invite-only training meals served yesterday and today.

“Our mock training meals are our final phase of training that allows our staff to rehearse for Tuesday’s grand opening,” said Alethea Rowe, senior director of public relations. “It’s important that our staff gets to ‘practice’ every aspect of their position – from greeting guests, to making the 250-plus menu items, to making our 50-plus signature cocktails, and, of course, plating our 30-plus legendary cheesecakes.”
