Chuck E. Cheese's adds delivery

The pizza and games chain brings the service to more than 345 locations through various partners.

Now you can get Chuck E. Cheese's pizza without the games.

The Dallas-based pizza and games chain, which has struggled to generate sales in recent quarters, on Tuesday announced that it would start offering delivery at more than 345 locations around the country.

That’s more than half of the 608 Chuck E. Cheese's locations. The company also operates 148 Peter Piper Pizza stores.

Delivery is available through the services Grubhub, Uber Eats and DoorDash, depending on location.

For a while, the chain will provide a “goody bag” with all delivery orders as long as supplies last. The bag will include games and toys or a character plush doll.

“After years of hearing from our guests that we should offer a way for families to enjoy our delicious pizzas at home, we’re excited to make delivery a reality as part of several game-changing initiatives that we have planned this year,” Ashley Zickefoose, chief marketing and concept officer for CEC Entertainment, said in a statement. CEC is Chuck E. Cheese’s parent company.

Chuck E. Cheese’s same-store sales declined 5.1% in the first quarter ended April 1. As a result, revenues declined $10.8 million. The company, however, said that sales results “improved each month during the quarter.”

Chuck E. Cheese's first started testing third-party delivery in Dallas, Tampa, Orlando, Miami and San Francisco at the end of 2017. The test proved successful enough to lead the company to expand it nationally.
