The Cheesecake Factory Class Action Lawsuit
A Cheesecake Factory Class Action Lawsuit is one of the latest legal actions that has been filed against a franchised entity in the United States. A Cheesecake Factory is a company that is owned by a Japanese firm. This company then places its restaurants all over the United States and Canada. The owner of the Cheesecake Factory goes on to market and sell a variety of different types of cakes, including those that are covered in chocolate. The Class Action Lawsuit filed against the Cheesecake Factory is a Class Action Lawsuit that makes it possible for other individuals that may have purchased from this same franchised entity to get compensated for their loss and injury.
What exactly happened here is that a Cheesecake Factory manager became too busy to deal with paperwork.
The manager of the Cheesecake Factory had previously signed a non-disclosure agreement with a different company. This new company sent spyware to the Cheesecake Factory’s computers which tracked information about every single cheesecake that was sold by the Cheesecake Factory and was then used to make profits off of those products. This is a violation of federal and state law.
The problem with this is that there may be as many as fifty different recipes for cheesecakes that may exist.
If every single recipe was made then you would need to find every single cheesecake recipe in the world and compile them into a book. You would have to have every single image of each cheesecake in the world as well as every recipe that was associated with each recipe. The amount of data that would be required here is simply staggering. In short, this requires specialized equipment and knowledge about how to compile and analyze legal documents and evidence in a legal capacity.
Fortunately, the Cheesecake Factory was able to avoid this problem by signing an agreement with an individual that owns the rights to the name Cheesecake.
That owner now holds the rights to the various logos, designs and ingredients that make up the cheesecake. Therefore, there is no more need to figure out all the ways in which to recreate and market cheesecakes. The company may still be open to being sued over its illegal activities but at least they will not be held responsible for the problems caused by their greed and bad business decisions. The cheesecake industry is one of the few businesses that are truly profitable even today but without the reputation and goodwill of the Cheesecake Factory this could spell disaster for others in the food industry.
Another problem with the Cheesecake Factory Class Action Lawsuit is that it does not give customers much of a choice.
The original recipe is still available and most people do like the taste of the original. The only way to change it is to either go through the trouble of getting a doctor to perform a procedure to change the composition or to order a different cake from a different bakery. However, those who live in areas where the original recipe is against the law will have no choice because the grocery store cannot sell them a cheesecake without this original recipe. Even if they could, the cost would be astronomical.
Since the cheesecake factory is in the food industry, they are well within their rights to try and save face. Therefore, they have come up with a variety of excuses, some of which are actually good. For example, they will state that the flavor of the original recipe was changed slightly so that it can be marketed as a healthier alternative to traditional cheesecakes. Of course, this is flat out nonsense because no health claims were ever made in this attempt to save face. They simply took an already good product and made it better.
Another big reason why people think the cheesecake factory is being dishonest is that they are simply too large to be practical.
They have factories all over the world and they are very efficient in how they produce cheesecakes. They can churn out thousands of gallons of cream cheese in a single day, all of which are absolutely fresh and delicious. Therefore, it stands to reason that it is extremely difficult to create a difference between the original recipe and the cheesecake factory’s cheesecakes, especially considering the quality of each of the cheesecakes.
However, perhaps the most convincing reason why people think the cheesecake factory is wrong is simply because of the extensive damage that has been done to them. They were laced with injurious advertising and deceptive statements which have harmed their image tremendously. These statements resulted in a number of unfavorable consumer opinions towards the cheesecake factory and its products, many of which have now become ingrained in people’s minds. The cheesecake factory has gotten away with these crimes against their customers for far too long. Now is the time for them to start proving that they are not the victims here. If they fail to do this, they may find themselves being left in the dark once again, this time as a symbol of someone else’s greed and corruption.
