Cheesecake Factory Gave Out Free Slices Yesterday . . . Which Led to Chaos and at Least One Arrest

It’s amazing what people will do to save six bucks.

Yesterday was the Cheesecake Factory’s 40th anniversary, so they gave away 40,000 free slices of cheesecake to celebrate. And the only way to get those slices was to order them on DoorDash.

And it was a cool idea . . . in theory.

What really happened? People flooded DoorDash with orders, which led to CHAOS at a bunch of Cheesecake Factory locations across the country as the drivers battled for parking spots and crammed into the restaurants.
It got so bad at the Cheesecake Factory in Arlington, Virginia that one DoorDash driver wound up getting arrested for disorderly conduct when the cops showed up and he got into a fight with them.
Cheesecake Factory hasn’t made a statement yet, but DoorDash tweeted that they expanded the offer and managed to deliver more than 60,000 free slices around the country. Eventually. Check out the full story [here].
