Inside Chuck E. Cheese's high-tech makeover

The 45-year-old food-and-games chain is remodeling all of its 470 locations to cater to tech-savvy Gen Alpha kids and their always-on-the-clock parents, to the tune of more than a half million dollars per store.

After a year of bankruptcies and bad news, food-and-games brands are welcoming families back with promotions, new menu offerings and more. But they still have a way to go to get back to pre-pandemic sales.

The food-and-games operator recently hired a senior executive to work on growing the delivery-only pizza brand.

CEC Entertainment says it has cleared more than $705 million in debt from its balance sheet in the Chapter 11 process.

The humans, “innovations” and creepy things that sopped up headline ink for the restaurant industry this year.

Expect the food-and-games chain to be more focused on tech and at-home experiences as it navigates the most challenging period in its history, CEC Entertainment’s CEO says.

CEC Entertainment’s unsecured creditors say the company’s lenders are pushing a quick sale that would result in an artificially low price.

The food-and-games chain’s parent, CEC Entertainment, has asked a bankruptcy court to approve the $2.3 million price tag to destroy tickets that have gone unused due to the pandemic.

Owner CEC Entertainment received the OK to get financing that will carry it through the bankruptcy process.
