While the dessert may be the perfect celebratory fare for coconut lovers celebrating World Coconut Day, it was first introduced on July 30 in celebration of World Cheesecake Day.

Cheesecake Factory diners won't be the only ones benefitting from the purchase of the chain's Coconut Cream Pie Cheesecake.

In addition to giving $1 to Feeding America, a hunger-relief charity, for every slice of cheesecake sold on National Cheesecake Day, the chain is donating 25 cents from every slice of Coconut Cream Pie Cheesecake sold through July 29, 2022.

This isn't the only major change for the brand this year.

The new cheesecake isn't the only news from the popular chain that fans have been excited about this year, however. According to a July 28 report from Restaurant Business, the company plans to introduce a new loyalty program for its biggest fans in the near future.

"Pre-COVID we were evaluating upgrades and enhancements to our marketing and technology platform, including the potential launch of a rewards program to drive our next generation marketing strategy. The success we had driving sales and frequency through targeted campaigns during COVID reinforced our view that now is the right time to move forward with these initiatives," a spokesperson for the chain told Fox Business.
