11 Surprising Places That Sell Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake

If you have a sudden Cheesecake Factory cheesecake craving, but there's no Cheesecake Factory in sight, there are still several places that offer them. You may be able to find a slice or a whole cake at your local grocery store, buyer's club, or bookstore. There are a handful of fast-food restaurants that also sell it by the slice: Many of these restaurants might surprise you. However, if you're looking for a special flavor or want to buy in bulk, your best choice may be perusing some of the online stores that offer cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory.

When you're deciding which retailer to buy from, you'll probably want to consider what's available nearby, which flavors they offer, how many pieces you can get, and how much you'll pay. Picking up a slice from a local fast food restaurant may only set you back $4 or so. On the other hand, committing to two large 10-inch specialty cheesecakes online can cost as much as $263, plus shipping, depending on where you buy it from. So, it's important to choose wisely.

1. Costco

Costco sells quite a few frozen products from restaurants, like cannoli from Ferrara's Bakery in New York City and Beecher's "World's Best" Mac & Cheese from a Pike's Place Market cheesemaker in Seattle. Since Costco is a warehouse buyer's club with nearly 600 locations across the U.S., it's a great choice for restaurants such as the Cheesecake Factory, which sells products on a large scale. As such, you can often see a multi-pack of cheesecake flavors from the Cheesecake Factory at Costco.

The flavors in the classic cheesecake selection from Costco include white chocolate raspberry truffle, vanilla bean, dulce de leche caramel, and Godiva double chocolate. The selection comes pre-sliced and is assembled in the shape of a regular 9" cheesecake. There are three slices of each flavor, for a total of 12 flavors. This collection of flavors is different from other multi-flavor packs from The Cheesecake Factory.

Interestingly enough, you can't find Cheesecake Factory cheesecake at Costco's rival, Sam's Club. At Sam's, you're stuck with cheesecake with the Suzy's Classic brand, which offers similar flavors and presentation as the Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes. So, if you're addicted to Cheesecake Factory cheesecake and are trying to decide which membership to get, Costco has a leg up in this area.

2. Fazoli's

Cheesecake and Italian food seem to be a pretty good match. Cheesecake originated over 4000 years ago in ancient Greece, so Italy is only a boat ride across the Adriatic Sea. Some people argue whether Fazoli's is really Italian food or not, but no matter how you categorize Fazoli's food, Fazoli customers have been enjoying strawberry and chocolate cheesecakes for dessert at the restaurant for a long time. In 2022, Fazoli's decided to take its cheesecake game up a notch by partnering with the Cheesecake Factory. This decision took place the same year the chain gained momentum with a comeback and opened eight new locations across the U.S.

Fazoli's currently sells two permanent flavors: New York Cheesecake with Strawberries and Triple Chocolate Cheesecake. The third flavor is typically seasonal, like pumpkin cheesecake and red velvet cheesecake. The fact that Fazoli's has a third flavor gives customers who don't live near a Cheesecake Factory the opportunity to numerous different sample flavors. Not only does Fazoli's sell cheesecake by the slice at just over $4 each, but both restaurant and catering customers can buy whole Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes as well. The whole cheesecake option is especially popular with customers who have holiday guests to feed.

3. Harry & David

Harry & David is a popular place to buy food gift boxes. Its offerings range even wider than fruit; they include items like gourmet food, chocolates, sweets, bakery items, wine, flowers, and plants. Harry & David also has a partnership with several specific food brands, like Cinnabon, Moose Munch Popcorn, Max & Milo, and The Cheesecake Factory. So, if someone special in your life (including you) likes Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes but can't get any nearby, Harry & David can ship them to you or your loved one. 

The selection is quite vast: There are over five available flavors. Harry & David also sells other cheaper cheesecakes that cost in the $40 to $60 range. The Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes range from $70 and are available in flavors such as the celebration cheesecake, REESE'S peanut butter chocolate cake cheesecake, and Cinnabon cinnamon swirl cheesecake. You'll also want to notice the size of the cheesecake you're getting: Some are 7", while others are 10". The 10" ones contain 12 slices, and the 7" ones serve eight people.

4. Barnes & Noble

It's common knowledge that Starbucks has infiltrated Barnes & Noble, but did you know that The Cheesecake Factory has, too? When you walk into a Starbucks, the smell of new books and coffee hits your nostrils immediately. And, if you walk over into the Café section and start salivating at the cheesecake in the bakery case, you can rest assured that it's good because it's from the Cheesecake Factory.

You never know what type of Cheesecake Factory cheesecake you're going to find at Barnes & Noble. The plain one with a graham cracker crust is certainly a standard offering. However, you're likely to find other types of cheesecakes at The Cheesecake Factory, like Godiva double chocolate, red velvet, and even pumpkin. If there's not a Cheesecake Factory nearby, you can even use B&N as your cheesecake source for special events and order a whole one if you order it enough ahead of time. It's important to keep in mind that if you buy a $45 whole cheesecake in the Café and have a B&N membership, your cheesecake purchase actually counts toward your reward stamps. So, it can get you closer to your next $5 reward if you buy a whole cheesecake from B&N rather than elsewhere.

5. Long John Silver's

You may not associate Long John Silver's with cheesecake. However, the restaurant offers Cheesecake Factory cheesecake as a dessert option: If it works for Fazoli's, why not Long John Silver's? Long John Silver's has been struggling to stay afloat for a while now. The restaurant has teamed up with A&W: As of April of 2023, you could get a frosty mug of A&W root beer with your Long John Silver's wild Alaska pollock and hush puppies, and you could also get a piece of Cheesecake factory cheesecake for only $4 a slice.

Long John Silver's has two cheesecake flavors on the menu: The classic cheesecake with a graham cracker crust and the triple chocolate cheesecake topped with chocolate chips. While you might find it amusing to see Long John Silver pairing greasy fast-food seafood with cheesecake, the chain has actually cycled through several types of desserts over the years, including cheesecake. The pineapple cheesecake was discontinued from the menu in 2019, and many people were upset when it was gone. So, perhaps adding cheesecake to the menu again will be that little extra something the chain needs for it to be back on people's radars again. Long John Silver's has also added a modern grilled menu that offers bowls and tacos, among other items. 

6. Skyline Chili

Chili and cheesecake may sound like an odd pairing, but it kind of makes sense. You get the heat from the chili and then eat a slice of cheesecake to cool down. Dairy really does go well with chili. After all, we often top ours with cheese and sour cream. Skyline Chili has far more than chili on the menu, with items like coneys, pasta, salads, fries, burritos, wraps, and baked potatoes. This menu is far more likely to please everyone at your party than most chili or coney places, so it's not surprising that the chain has expanded its dessert menu beyond fudge cake and funnel fries to Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes.

Skyline Chili first started offering Cheesecake Factory cheesecake slices in 2020. The flavors available depend entirely on seasonal availability. You may walk into the restaurant and find a red velvet cheesecake or any other of Cheesecake Factory's 30+ flavors. Since Skyline Chili doesn't advertise which cheesecake varieties will be offered online, you'll always be surprised. Whichever one you find, you're not likely to be disappointed since all of The Cheesecake Factory's flavors are delicious. Unfortunately, Skyline Chili only has locations in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Florida as of April 2023. So, eating Cheesecake Factory cheesecake with your chili may still be out of your reach unless you make your own chili and use a Copycat Cheesecake Factory cheesecake recipe to make your own cheesecake.

7. Walmart

While you can't find Cheesecake Factory cheesecake at Sam's Club, you definitely can find it at its sister store, Walmart. Since there are many Walmart establishments in practically every sizable city, having access to Cheesecake Factory cheesecake may be easier than you ever dreamed. 

You can likely find the grand cheesecake selection box at your local Walmart, which features a different mix of flavors than the ones available at Costco. Walmart's variety box contains two slices each of White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle, chocolate mousse, strawberry-topped original, and Snickers bar chunks cheesecakes: You get two slices 

of each of the flavors, for a total of eight slices. The other option you have is to purchase an eight-slice original cheesecake for about $16. 

Walmart also provides an option to order two packs of larger specialty Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes online. These are 10-inch cheesecakes with 12 to 14 slices that range in price from around $150 to $210. Cheesecake flavors include flavors mango key lime, chocolate tuxedo, REESE's peanut butter, Godiva double chocolate, wild strawberries and cream, and white chocolate raspberry.

8. Target

Target doesn't have as big a variety of Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes as other grocery stores and buyer's clubs. Instead, it has a solitary option: The original cheesecake with a graham cracker crust. Of course, a plain cheesecake is only plain if you keep it that way. You can always dress it up with strawberries and whipped cream, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, or your favorite candies or cookies. However, it's just as nice if you eat it plain so that you can appreciate the simplicity of a dessert that we've been eating for 4,000 years.

You can find it in the freezer section of your local Target store. However, since Target only stocks just a few of one variety of cheesecake, you may want to plan ahead to make sure it's in stock when you want it. The plain cheesecake you can find at Target has a 7-inch crust, so it only comes with eight slices of cheesecake. The $17 Cheesecake Factory cheesecake isn't the only type of cheesecake you can find at Target. It's also sometimes possible to find a flavored Edwards cheesecake for $10 less or Target's own Favorite Day brand variety pack for a couple of dollars less than the one from the Cheesecake Factory.

9. Web Food Store

If you haven't heard of Web Food Store before, you're not alone. However, it's a great place to find trendy and top-selling products that you may see at your local grocery store. Plus, WebFoodStore offers free shipping, which makes bulk ordering even more appealing. Web Food Store has over 1,000 suppliers, and it offers some truly unique Cheesecake Factory options.

Web Food Store sells some of the large two-packs of 10-inch cheesecakes as well as 12 packs of individually packaged slices. So, it's the perfect place to buy Cheesecake Factory cheesecake if you have a small business like a coffee shop and want to offer your customers Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes. The 12- packs of single-serve cheesecakes are around $90 per case, while the two-pack whole cheesecakes range from around $150 to $191. Web Food Store also has flavors we haven't seen from other retail sellers, like banana foster, Belgian chocolate, Oreo cookie, red velvet cake, pumpkin, and vanilla bean.

10. Rebel Smuggling Galactic Emporium

Yes, we know Rebel Smuggling Galactic Emporium may sound like it's referring to a sci-fi movie, but it exists outside those confines of sci-fi. The company is an online bulk-ordering operation. Products include name-brand beverages, food, company supplies, health and beauty products, and pet products in bulk to order online. The Rebel Smuggling Galactic Emporium only offers a handful of Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes that you can have delivered to your house. 

Okay, there's really no smuggling involved since nobody is forbidding mail-order cheesecakes. But there's always the possibility that getting a package from the Rebel Smuggling Galactic Emporium could convince you that it somehow tastes better: It offers the two-per-box,10-inch cheesecakes with 14 slices per cake. The company tends to carry fun flavors like vanilla bean, mango key lime, and red velvet, with prices ranging from around $173 to $183, depending on flavor. The company carries several other brands of cheesecake as well, starting at $105 and going all the way up to $307: So make sure you choose your smuggled cheesecake wisely.

11. Sears

You may be surprised to learn that you can purchase Cheesecake Factory cheesecake from Sears. Since so many Sears stores have been closing their doors in shopping centers and malls across the U.S., we thought it was completely gone. It turns out that, as of March 2023, there are only 18 left open. So, for the most part, Sears has retreated back to its origins by focusing on sending its products to its customers through the mail. If it occurs to you to search for Sears online, you'll find that it still sells everything from appliances and wedding rings to clothing and office supplies. 

Oddly enough, it has also jumped on the food and grocery bandwagon. Although, we have to admit the website has a lot left to be desired since clicking over to world cuisines and then Polish food brings you to a page of metal polish rather than Polish food: Oops. Luckily, a search for Cheesecake Factory cheesecake really does take you to a page full of cheesecake.

Sears has partnered with Harry & David to provide its Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes. They range from about $127 to $263 in price, depending on the flavor, size, and number of cheesecakes per package. Some of the flavors include pumpkin, Oreo dream extreme, original, celebration, Godiva double chocolate, and dream factory peanut butter. However, since Sears charges over double the price offered by Harry & David, we're not sure why you would want to go with Sears.
