The Cheesecake Factory revealed in February that it was coming -- and to an area where the owners have ties.

"Having grown up in Detroit and watched my parents start their cheesecake business here in the 1950s, opening a Cheesecake Factory at Twelve Oaks feels like a true homecoming," said founder and CEO David Overton.
