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?

  • 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 zel2 hari yang lalu
    • @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.

  • The Government Covered up my Federal Court Lawsuit with Corrupt Bias Judge Salvador Mendoza Jr. in the Eastern District of Washington State… The Corrupt Bias Judge Salvador Mendoza Jr. misrepresents court cases by being involved in putting a 42: 1983 Civil Rights Act Code, not wanting to put in the codes and reasons that I filed the lawsuit such as Fraud and Racketeering, etc. and doesn’t want to talk about why he is representing the case with that 42: 1983 Civil Rights Act Code…You will learn about Discrimination, Retaliation, Fraud, Racketeering/Organized Crime and how teachers are stealing from Children and Students at Yakima College, Wenatchee College, The Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges, Mansfield School District Washington State K-12, and Government Corruption at the Local, State, and Federal Level… Ring Leader Yakima Valley College Teacher/Dental Hygiene Program Coordinator Cheri Podruzny put in the order for Wenatchee Valley College English 203 Research Teacher Leslie Lamkin to illegally remove, not install, and misrepresent my Assignments in my English 203 Research Class, so she could deny my Bachelors of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene Degree… In an email Cheri Podruzny accepted the English 203 Research class at Wenatchee Valley College as the last college coursework needed to complete in order to obtain my BASDH Degree. (See evidence numbered: 000110 or page 110 in the evidence section, etc.)… I emailed Leslie Lamkin trying to get my Summary #1 Assignment back into the Wenatchee Valley College Canvas Computer System. Leslie Lamkin emails me on June 26, 2018 at 1:49 PM that states, “I can assure you that nobody is going to dig back into the course assignments to make sure you completed all the work listed in the Syllabus.” (Lamkin) Leslie Lamkin knows that Cheri Podruzny changed the Bridge Program Paperwork to make sure I have all the requirements that she knows Leslie Lamkin frauded by illegally removing, not installing, and misrepresenting all my major requirements. This way they both benefit by stealing my money for English Class, the books, the Bridge Program Crosswalk and Fees, and all my hard work spent to get the BASDH Degree that I have proof that I earned. (See evidence numbered: 000009)…You will also see Evidence of Healthcare Insurance Fraud regarding Dr. Blake Perry in Mount Vernon, WA at Perry Family Dental and Dr. Charles Morgan in Ocean Shores, WA at Ocean Shores Dental and how many of these Criminals are using illegal software which is proved in a Court Hearing with Judge Jan Barnette that is exposed in my Facebook and IDworlds Videos, the Department of Health and Labor Industries Obstructed Justice by covering up the crimes...Attorney William Pickett who was the President of the Washington Bar Association and Foundation Member at the Washington State Bar Association Deleted my Posts and is involved in covering up the Organized Crime that I am Exposing... Seattle, WA Attorney DAVID O and David O Defense Firm stole $10,000 cash paid in full from me by abandoning me and breaking our contract in my Federal Court Lawsuit because David O was threatened and/or bribed... David O filed Paperwork in the Federal Court on my behalf… My attorney David O is abandoning me in my federal court case after I told him I wanted him to file the Contract that has my settlement offer in it and states, “Parties. I, Dayvin Knemeyer, retain David O Defense for representation on the matter of obtaining his Bachelors of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene degree from Yakima Valley Community College. In the alternative, if Mr. Knemeyer is not provided his degree we would pursue a lawsuit, including trial if necessary, for the same and damages. (Dayvin and David O signed contract 6/21/2019) The contract also states, “Retainer. David O Defense agrees to provide all legal services for a flat fee of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) Mr. Knemeyer has paid in full the retainer agreement. (Dayvin and David O signed contract 6/21/2019) …See our Contract through Videos or Evidence on Facebook or IDworlds because I currently do not have my Bachelors of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene Degree that I earned and I have all the evidence to prove this on Facebook and IDworlds...Please check out my Facebook Page Dayvin M Knemeyer…Please Share my Albums, Evidence, Videos… On Jan 11, 2018, 5:24 PM I received an email from Cheri Podruzny the Yakima Valley College Dental Hygiene Teacher and Program Coordinator that states, “Hello Dayvin, I met with Dean Paulette Lopez this morning to discuss your concerns. She is copied on this email. Please see answers to your questions below: Question 1: Does ENG 203 at Wenatchee Valley College meet the equivalency of the Yakima Valley College ENG 203 and the BASDH degree requirement? Yes. Please see emails sent to you on December 11 from Sherrie Warren and on December 12 from Donna Fulton. Question 2: What grade requirement is acceptable on the ENG 203 class for meeting the BASDH degree requirement? 2.0 "C" Question 3: Does Cheri approve my Math that I have already completed for meeting the BASDH degree requirement? Yes. Math 105 meets the State Board for Community and Technical College BAS Math requirement. Please see December 5 email confirmation from Donna Fulton. Question 4: Is the ENG 203 requirement the last course that is need in order to receive my BASDH degree? English 203 is the last college coursework you will need to complete. BA 256 meets the statistics requirement. You will need to submit the Crosswalk petition and pay for BAS 402, 403, and 404. Coursework is not required for these courses. 400 level credits are transcripted for BAS 402, 403, and 404 based on the Dental Hygiene National Board sores submitted in your application. Please contact Donna Fulton for more information on the crosswalk petition process. Question 5: Can Cheri please fill out my Colorado License Paperwork fully completed and done correctly? Please complete the top portions of the form pertaining to your personal information. Donna checked with the registrar today and has informed me that your degree was posted Summer of 2012. You may add this information and send the form directly to Colorado, or you can send it back to the department once your personal information has been completed. We will add the degree date and forward it to Colorado for you. I do apologize for misspelling your first name on the form! Best, Cheri Cheri Podruzny RDH MS Dental Hygiene Program Coordinator Yakima Valley College (509) 574-4921” (Podruzny) …A list of some of the other Criminals involved in this Organized Crime Scandal: Yakima Valley College Dean Paulette Lopez, YVC President Assistant/Public Records Megan Jensen, Yakima Federal Court Clerk’s Pam Howard and Angela Noel, Richland Federal Court Clerk Debbie Brasel, Attorney General Bob Ferguson and Assistant Attorney General Derek Taylor who are providing assistance to criminals using our Taxpayer dollars, Wenatchee Valley College President Jim Richardson is involved with this Scandal and other Fraud Scandals see evidence on Facebook or IDworlds, WVC Vice President’s Carli Schiffner and Chio Flores, WVC Director of HR and Public Records Reagan Bellamy, WVC Dean’s Joey Walter and Lori Keller, Washington State Board of Community and Technical Colleges Director of Transfer Education Joyce Hammer, Mansfield School District WA State K-12 English teacher Leslie Lamkin teaches English at both Mansfield WA School District K-12 and Wenatchee College and the Mansfield School Children have missing Assignments through Public Record Proof, United States Office for Civil Rights Seattle Investigator Gregg Hamby, his buddy (Seattle OCR) Paul Goodwin, and (Seattle OCR) Manager Linda Mangel, United States Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, many other Criminals and Agencies that are not listed here yet… NEW VIDEOS...Those found guilty of racketeering can be fined up to $25,000 and sentenced to 20 years in prison per racketeering count… Leslie Lamkin and the Kids in Mansfield are having the same problem with missing assignments. At Mansfield Luke Hall emails Leslie Lamkin and states, “I saw a bunch of your 7th graders are on the D and F list out of your room. Are they missing something or something they need to work on?” (Luke Hall Mansfield) Leslie Lamkin emails Luke Hall and states, “It’s a combination of missing assignments and laziness.” (Leslie Lamkin Mansfield) Luke Hall emails Leslie Lamkin and states, “Ok. Read them the riot act on both.” (Luke Hall Mansfield) The kids in Mansfield are having missing assignments just like I did. I was cheated, so the kids in Mansfield are most likely being cheated too. Why doesn’t anybody care about the kids at Mansfield? (See evidence numbered: (See evidence numbered: 000233-000245, 000249)… I am a Registered Dental Hygienist with a License in both Washington State and Colorado… I do have my Associates of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene Degree and I received an A- in Leslie Lamkin’s English 203 Research Class, but Wenatchee Valley College English 203 Research Teacher Leslie Lamkin is refusing to fix the Assignment Requirement fraud, and Cheri Podruzny the Yakima Valley College Dental Hygiene Teacher is refusing to give me the Bachelors of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene Degree that I earned, even after filing a Federal Court Lawsuit, showing all the evidence to prove I was cheated, and paying ten thousand dollars for an attorney David O that abandoned me because he was threatened and/or bribed...
