Some of Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen restaurants have been the victims of cyberattacks, the company announced on its website. 

The cyber attack may have resulted in unauthorized access to customer payment card information.

Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen says it learned of the breach on August 16, though the actual breach may have happened on between November 3, 2017 and January 2, 2018.

The company hired a third-party cybersecurity firm to investigate. The unauthorized access appears to have occurred on a network that was permanently disabled and replaced by April 10, 2018.
