If you've been to The Cheesecake Factory, you've probably wondered, "What the heck is going on in here?" for a couple second before diving into a slice of cheesecake and forgetting about it.

Not to mention the awkward placements of some of the doors. If you haven't noticed -- most locations have TWO entries one by the slice counter (where the actual hostess desk is) and then one main entrance that cuts across the dining room. Seriously whats up with that? Truthfully though you've probably never really sat there to think long and hard about what's actually going on at The Cheesecake Factory from a design standpoint.
