National Cheat Day was actually started by Datz in South Tampa. The local favorite decided to celebrate their birthday each year by starting a national foodie holiday. National Cheat Day was born and started with a bang on January 28, 2016. The foodie holiday takes place now on the fourth (4th) Thursday in January each year.
