This year, Chuck E. Cheeses is celebrating 30 Years of Making Magic.
The CEC Entertainment, Inc. company plans to bring some of that magic to Silverdale.
Construction is underway on a Chuck E. Cheeses location on Northwest Myhre Road in Silverdale. The business is scheduled to open in early September.
The first Chuck E. Cheeses Pizza Time Theatre opened in 1977 in San Jose, Calif. CEC Entertainment, Inc. now has 531 locations throughout the United States and Canada. Brenda Holloway, CEC Entertainment, Inc. spokeswoman, said the company carefully picks locations for future sites.
We look for densely populated areas containing families with children ages 2-11, Holloway said.
Chuck E. Cheeses features animated stage shows, games and indoor rides for children. The business is a popular spot for childrens birthday parties, organizational parties and school fund-raisers.
Parents and kids of all ages can enjoy Chuck E. Cheeses one-of-a-kind animated stage show starring the magical mouse and his friends. Come for dinner and stay for lots of fun entertainment including skill and video games and skytubes, Holloway said. Cool indoor rides include a hovering helicopter, Wasteland and Mad Motion Theater.
Pizza, a variety of sandwiches, a salad bar and various desserts are just a few of the food items served at the establishment. By playing games, children can earn tickets which can be traded for various prizes.
At the end of the visit, kids can trade earned tickets for prizes, Holloway said.
CEC Entertainment, Inc. currently employees 17,000 full- and part-time workers. Hiring for the Silverdale location will begin on July 31. Interested candidates may submit their applications online at www.cec-careers.com or at the on-site construction trailer on Northwest Myhre Road in Silverdale.
There are 10 Chuck E. Cheeses in Washington with the nearest location in Tacoma.
We do plan to open early September and do not anticipate any construction delays, Holloway said.
