Ah, so yes the rumors are true – Panera Bread is relocating from inside Haywood Mall to a stand alone restaurant. Construction started this week. No ETA on when it will be done.
So that leads to this long-winded rumor that a Cheesecake Factory will be coming to Greenville. More specifically in the location that will be vacated by the current Panera Bread once their stand alone building is complete.
There has been no press release, no concrete proof, no documents (that are public) showing that CCF will be moving in that space.
Rumors of a CCF coming to Greenville have been going on for years! Will this be the real thing or not? Check back here for the latest info as we send our spies to uncover the truth. 🙂
Need some hype? Some rumors? Check out the following:
With Panera Bread building a free standing building next to Wells Fargo, word I received today that Cheesecake Factory is now 98% true. The question was if it was going in the current Panera Bread location in the mall, wouldn’t it be small? The current CCF in SouthPark is bigger in size than the current Panera Bread location. What my source was told, they would do a build out. More to come… (from sisinono here)
And from Facebook (read all the comments, especially towards the bottom):
So get on the HYPE train folks!
