If you love cheesecake like I do, then I have some good deal news for you…it’s baaaack! Right now you can now get a 4 pound Cheesecake Factory Original Cheesecake at Costco for $18! That’s a SUPER DEAL for a delicious dessert! This is a plain cheesecake with a graham cracker crust, and it comes frozen.
The Cheesecake Factory Frozen Cheesecake at Costco is a seasonal item, and generally we see it return each year in early November ahead of Thanksgiving. It’s usually available through the November and December holidays. If you missed this cheesecake while it was in-store at Costco, you can always find the Costco bakery Cheesecake in stock in the refrigerated cases in the bakery department! It’s also a plain cheesecake and a fan favorite!
Why We Like It
Overall, Cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory is reliably good and we recommend it. Given the price point of this famous cheesecake maker’s 4 pounder at Costco, it’s a well priced option for a luxe dessert for any of the upcoming holidays. Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving, Hanuka, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year’s…what am I missing…there are a lot of holiday family meals coming up! That means a lot of desserts!
We also love that this is a classic plain cheesecake – while we’re big fans of not complicating ours…the options are endless to customize this cheesecake at Costco with the flavor, fruit, sauce or message of your choice – we dropped a whole bunch of ideas below (scroll down).
The frozen Cheesecake Factory Costco Cheesecake is pre sliced – so you can remove a few slices at a time from the freezer or defrost the whole box. Super convenient if you’re not having a huge crowd!
Tip: plan ahead if you want to serve this, as it needs a day in the fridge before you plan to eat it. I goofed and forgot to thaw mine in advance of Thanksgiving last year…and to be honest it was still really good with just a few hours on the counter – but for optimal consistency, fridge defrosting for 8-12 hours is recommended.
In short, we don’t think it’s super easy to make a good cheesecake at home so it’s one of the desserts we always opt to purchase premade – and local bakery cheesecakes can easily cost 3-4x this price where we live (Los Angeles) – they might be better but not 3-4x better, so we’re big fans of The Cheesecake Factory frozen option at Costco and recommend it.

That’s only $1 more than this cost in Fall 2022 – not bad! We are big fans of this and happy to see it back – it’s still a SUPER bargain compared to purchasing it from the Cheesecake Factory store!
Previous Pricing (for reference only)
November 2022: $16.99
In my local Cheesecake Factory, a 10-Inch original cheesecake costs $57! I don’t know how the weight compares, but I’m willing to bet they are the same or that the Costco is larger…either way, for $17 this is obviously a GREAT value.
