Chuck E. Cheese might be having a tough time hosting children’s parties, but the company has a work around to keep its business afloat.
The family entertainment company is also operating as Pasqually's Pizza & Wings, which appears as a restaurant separate from Chuck E. Cheese on delivery apps like Grubhub and Seamless.
"Pasqually’s Pizza & Wings, named after another favorite member of Munch's Make Believe Band, shares kitchen space with the Chuck E. Cheese restaurant," a Chuck E. Cheese spokesperson told Food & Wine. Select items might be added to the family restaurant menu in the future, according to the spokesperson.
Pasqually P. Pieplate is the name of the fictional chef in the Chuck E. Cheese world.
Does it taste any different from the original pizza pie? While cooked in the same kitchen, the spokesperson said Pasqually’s Pizza features a thicker crust and extra sauce.
The pizza from Chuck E. Cheese's side project is currently only available for delivery.
One Reddit user said they were trying to support a local business and ended up unintentionally supporting Chuck E. Cheese, since there’s no indication on delivery apps that lets customers know that both franchises are connected.
