With a combination of arcade games, pizza, and animatronics, Chuck E. Cheese became the go-to spot for kids' birthday parties in the '90s. But a $1 billion debt load and shuttered dine-in service due to the COVID-19 pandemic forced Chuck E. Cheese to file for bankruptcy in June. So what happened?

  • I was a manager at CEC for a year to get restaurant management experience before I opened my own restaurant. Chefs who open restaurants usually fail. Businessmen who become chefs then open usually do well. In saying that, I wanted the business side, I was already a chef. That was a gold mine. One weekend, my restaurant made over 75K in token sales. It was a three day weekend but that was a massive amount of sales. THEY NEVER REUSED PIZZA. That small piece could have easily been from another pizza they had ordered. It isnt hard to fake a video, even then. If they want to know how to survive, call me. What I learned from them I used to run my three restaurants before I sold them. The pizza isnt the problem. Their speciality pizzas were actually delicious.

  • Add in COVID-19 and many arcade options like Dave and Busters and Round 1 did not make it better. Also a horror video game really scared people off. That’s just my opinion.

  • Amazing Video. Bitcoin has faced a rather strong resistance after its explosion to the $11,100 highs. At the recent lows, the asset traded as low as $10,300 - around 8% ish below the local highs couple of weeks back. Despite this slight slip and the fact that BTC remains above $14,000, we should all remain bullish on Bitcoin. I think bitcoin could soon move higher to $20,000 in a couple of days. As a crypto trader the past few weeks has recorded immerse benefits all round, my only regret now is not knowing Mr taylor on time, his top notch signals remains the bedrock of the successes recorded in my personal trading portfolio. his trading technics helps me get my profit... i already made $100k with his. investing on cryptocurrencies is now the new source of income for everyone he continues to be an inspiration to all who have been fortunate to have made use of his signals.You all can reach out to him through or on WhatsApp +1 409 299 3921

  • Re: the recycled pizza, I’m not familiar with how Chuck E. Cheese operates in the kitchen, but I can see how whole pizza with inconsistent slices can occur in a restaurant. Sometimes, it’s more convenient to make a whole pizza with drastically different toppings than one with the same toppings throughout (for example, half cheese and half pepperoni). This method is more accommodating to customer demands for the day, minimizing waste, and can potentially make an upcoming order quicker to prepare (ex. That unused cheese half could be modified to a pepperoni or delux half). Though we try to stay as consistent and possible, there’s no guarantee that the dimensions would be the same for every pie; this is probably why you get slices that do not fit together in one pie.

    • @luvin zel bad recipe, perhaps? Pizza tasting like cardboard is not necessarily a sign of poor food safety practices; it could mean that the pizza simply sucks. Ultimately, head office, and most locations, should know that reserving food that other customers have touched is a food safety violation. If it is practiced, it’s probably isolated incidents due to a bad employee, manager, or franchise.

    • @STLUCIANIDOL91 like i said,it doesnt explain why the pizza's texture is like a cardboard. ive re heated a pizza that is 5 days old in the microwave,and even that doesnt make the pizza taste like a cardboard.

      luvin zelluvin zelPrieš 8 dienų
    • @luvin zel it’s possible that those pizzas were cooked, at the very least, almost thoroughly and held aside, then reheated to order. I don’t know if this is the standard company wide but I’m sure there are workers who do this to save time.

    • but,how do you explain the staleness as well as the cup board texture,a hallmark sign of old pizza?
