Chuck E.

“Expanding our menu with new, innovative offerings is big part of how we are working to make the Chuck E. Cheese’s experience more enjoyable for the whole family. We are excited to add such a fun, unique treat to our menu lineup,” said Tom Leverton, CEO of CEC Entertainment, Inc.
As a direct result of the strong positive customer response to the addition of Dippin’ Dots to the menu, Chuck E. Cheese’s is expanding its offering of Dippin’ Dots products to more than 540 of its corporate-owned and franchise restaurants nationwide. Participating locations offer four popular Dippin’ Dots flavors, including Chocolate, Banana Split, Rainbow Ice and the most popular variety, Cookies ‘n Cream.
