The Cheesecake Factory at Fayette Mall had a bang-up opening Tuesday.

About 100 guests were in line when the door opened at 11 a.m., said Alethea Rowe, senior director of public relations for the restaurant chain which features indulgent entrees and an extensive lineup of cheesecakes.

“We have had a wonderful day with lots of happy people, lots of cheesecake seen being taken home,” she said.

The long-awaited restaurant at the mall on Nicholasville Road also offers curbside pickup with patrons able to place an order and pick it up in one of the designated curbside parking spaces. That service was also off and running as soon as the restaurant opened, Rowe said.

The restaurant has “just a few positions available,” she said, adding potential employees should go to Thecheesecakefactory. com   to file an application.
