    It's doubtful (not impossible) they this company does a job they are supposed to do and it may (or may not...depending on perception) actually be caring and one of the many good workplaces to be earning a pay.
    However, the way they say "we want to nurture mind, body, spirit etc etc..." DOES NOT APPLY to the public, the obese and the pretentious who can't go anywhere else but at "cheeseball factory". Marketing has it's perks and the $$ does pay but how this place claims some type of glory because of keeping up w/ the joneses is typicall american greed.
    Every week families like mine subscribe to healthy eating and this cheeseball joint is always on its list of what not to eat. LOTS OF things on their menu makes part of a weekly list.
    Shame on you..
    You're a glorified mcdonald's and/or chipotle.

      Wow, anger issues much?

      First off, considering how expensive it is I doubt people go to eat there as often as they go to McD's. Secondly, they have healthy food options. And finally, get off your high horse of healthy eating, splurging once in a while for a celebration is not some sort of horrible sin. You are, most likely, just an angry spiteful person because you probably got wronged by it somehow; in other words: quit being a Nazi.

        I refuse to eat anything at McD's except their side salad for a buck–rest of their food is just crap - Cheesecake Factory – too expensive and most foods contain the calories for a full day – 1800 - I love the lettuce wrap burger at In-N-Out so I can have a splurge and share an order of fries with my friend and of course unsweet tea – I haven't eaten sugar in over 2 years–sugar causes cancer cells to grow like wildfire so let people eat it and feed it to their kids and then they get cancer and die off oh well – check the New York Times for onocology/research team – another on the West Coast did the same - so for 'Easter' - load up a plastic carry tray with things like new toothbrush, paste, shampoo, conditioner and no candy shit ya'll.

      Pls. don't confuse the non educated. It's bad enough OBESITY is understandable and normal.
      Calculus, trigonometry geometry and subjects..not just things that actually matter in a school may be very foreign and unspeakable.
      Although menu isn't hard to spell. Some ingredients might be.
      Pls. take it easy on these people.
      They're just as hungry in their bellies but SADLY not their minds.
      So sad.

        Bitch will you PLEASE SHUT UP. do your own thing but don't criticize others. You're probably a fat slob anyway and that's why you can sit at a computer and say this shit. Jump off that horse that you're dick riding. If you don't like it then DONT GO. I mean damn hoes go in when you can't see their faces. Go nibble on some lettuce.
