Chuck E. Cheese
Founded by Nolan Bushnell (founder of Atari & Pong), in May 1977, the first Chuck E. Cheese's was located on Winchester Boulevard, in San Jose, California. The concept evolved from Mr. Bushnell's belief that there were not enough places where young people could go to play video games that had a family atmosphere. Today, our mission is simple, bring families together in a wholesome environment for fun, games and kids. Chuck E. Cheese's consists of over 500 entertainment centers in 48 states and 6 countries. CEC Entertainment, Inc. is headquartered in Irving, Texas, and trades on the New York Stock Exchange using the ticker symbol (CEC).
