Chuck E. Cheese’s Menu Offers New Tastes for Parents #CECNewYork
Over the years, we've spent a lot of time at our local Chuck E. Cheese's. It's a fun place where a kid can be a kid. But what about the parents? Usually parents who visit Chuck E. Cheese's just take a seat and wait for the kids to let them know when it's time to go home.
Note: I was invited as media to this event and received a gift bag. However, any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
For those parents waiting, Chuck E. Cheese's has something special just for you! I joined a group of other moms to learn more about Chuck E. Cheese's reinvented menu that provides more dining options for grown-up tastes.
"Kids are at the heart of everything we do at Chuck E. Cheese's, but kids don't come alone, and we want to make sure parents have just as enjoyable an experience as the kids do, especially when it comes to the food," said Tom Leverton, CEO of CEC Entertainment, Inc. "We've added new items that cater to the more sophisticated tastes of the parents who take time from busy family schedules to bring their kids into Chuck E. Cheese's. New sandwiches, wraps, and wings are available in addition to great new pizza offerings."
To learn more (and taste test) the new menu, we meet with one of the Chuck E. Cheese chefs, who explained the new menu options and how these items will appeal to adults.
"The new menu boasts a wide variety of options and flavor combinations, and I'm most excited about the new pizza crust and pizza options. The crust is crisp and delicious, and the dough we use is made fresh, never frozen and hand-stretched to order," said Chef Gregory Casale, corporate chef at CEC Entertainment, Inc. "The feedback so far has been extremely positive. I think parents will be surprised and impressed with the quality of the new menu."
Two flavorful pizzas are the signature items of Chuck E. Cheese's new menu design. In a blind taste test, 59% of respondents preferred thin and crispy Chuck E. Cheese's pizza to Pizza Hut® and Dominos® combined*. A "thin and crispy" option for any pizza currently on the menu will also be available.
The signature pizzas in the lineup are:
Cali Alfredo, the newest specialty pizza made with Alfredo sauce, fresh spinach, freshly grated mozzarella, chicken breast, sliced mushrooms and sausage.
BBQ chicken pizza will get a fresh update with crispy onions and a new BBQ drizzle.
Also on the menu are alternatives to pizza, that parents can enjoy, including:
BBQ and sweet chili boneless and bone-in chicken wings
Caesar and club whole-wheat wraps
BBQ chicken ciabatta sandwich
Soft Parmesan breadsticks
Buffalo chicken cheesy bread
Dessert churros served with salted caramel and white chocolate icing
After taste testing the menu items (some of them twice), I can say it's all delicious and parents will enjoy having a meal there. The new menu items are not only tasty but calories friendly (if your counting) and fresh since everything from the pizza dough and it's topping are made fresh daily n stores. No frozen items! it's just like a real pizza restaurant.
So get excited to visit your Chuck E. Cheese's and enjoy a meal while your kids enjoy then games!
