About Eli's Cheesecake Co.

In 1980, Eli Schulman declared cheesecake would be the signature dessert for his legendary Chicago steakhouse, Eli's The Place For Steak. His unconventional fast and hot baking method resulted in the creation of Chicago-Style cheesecake: a beautiful caramelization on the outside and a creamy consistency on the inside, baked on a shortbread cookie crust. What began in his restaurant's kitchen has grown into one of the country's largest cheesecake and dessert bakeries. Still a family owned business, all Eli's Cheesecakes are handmade and decorated right here in Chicago! We attribute our success to a strong commitment to quality, empowering our workforce and following Eli Schulman's mantras "Charity will never bust you," and "Treat others as if you were the other."
