Junior’s moving its cheesecake baking operation to South Jersey
NEW YORK (AP) — Junior's, the New York City restaurant famous for its cheesecakes, is moving its baking operation to New Jersey.
Most of the cakes and other baked goods that carry its name have been made in the city for more than 60 years. The owners tell The New York Times that by July, the operation will be located in a 103,000-square-foot facility in Burlington, New Jersey.
It will replace a much smaller building in Queens that has housed Junior's main baking operation for 15 years.
The restaurant assured customers of its four restaurants and wholesale and mail order businesses that the cakes will be as tasty as ever, if not better.
Junior's flagship restaurant is located on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.
Owner Alan Rosen told the Times he did the move on his own and did not seek any subsidies from the State of New Jersey, which has been criticized for handing out large incentives to companies.
