You know, I would LOVE to see what Disney would do if they bought chuckecheese. Like the arcade, pizza place but for everyone. The animatronics would be characters walking around. The games would be Disney themed. The character “movies” that they show up on the big screen, would be Mickey shorts. You know. AND THE MOUSE WOULD BE MICKEY. That would make sense to me

It declined when they got rid of the TMNT arcade game or at least that's why I refused to go when I was around 8 years old, literally that arcade was the only reason I would ever wanna go whenever my parents offered to take me and my sister there

the fnaf game series has also made people a bit uneasy because they are so similar and chucke inspired fnaf but now there's rumours of murders it will be setting off more alarms for people

In my personal opinion these are some reasons it might have declined:
No more tokens, the cards are not as fun
Shane Dawson’s pizza theory might’ve
ruined their reputation a bit
After fnaf many kids probably don’t want to go there
Overall there’s so many arcades with more things to do like main event etc.
The new character (I personally don’t really mind it) but many people have lost the nostalgia in it I guess.
Kids probably want to get a new video game or consoles ect. as a treat instead of going out somewhere
I hope Chuck E. Cheese gets back on their feet. I have so many memories of going there and it’s just so much fun, I would love to take my future kids there.

The store here has closed. - It was a gang ridden cesspool. I was afraid to go in there! Something is definitely wrong when a armed security guard has to be on duty at a kids' venue.

Ive been to chuck e cheese since age 3, im hoping that they stay open. I love the past of the place and their old tronics. It kinda bothers me how the restaurant is just "ooo spooky" now and "omg real fnaf."

This was a very informative video. But you're not taking into account the fact that, after 2008, companies were encouraged by the Fed to take on excessive debt. This was supposed to "boost aggregate demand" by creating a "wealth effect." Many companies went into debt to buy back their own stock. At least Chuck E. Cheese bought profitable companies with the debt instead of purchasing their own stock. They didn't expect the Fed to start hiking rates every quarter beginning in 2017. Nor did they expect the Fed to do "balance sheet reduction." The bankruptcy of Chuck E. Cheese was predictable once that move was made - and bankruptcies of many other companies will follow in its wake.

The going into dept might be the reason why they kept bringing up prices in tickets and tokens bc I spent over 80 dollars or more in tokens and made 1'000 tickets or more and I could only get 2 small things with all those tickets that was the last time I went there

In my hometown it was a Showbiz that came first and was there for many years. It was popular more for the teen crowd because of the arcade and little kids were seen less often. A few years later the Showbiz became a Chuck E. Cheese and you could see the shift almost overnight. Most of the arcade games popular with teens went away and were replaced with little kids games. The whole demographic shifted, and frankly not for the better. The restaurant struggled to stay open for another 10 years, but they had the misfortune of being located next door to a KMart which was quickly declining in business and foot traffic. I recall as an adult walking into that Chuck E Cheese the last year it was open. It was a Saturday night, and the place was half empty. I knew it wasn't going to last long at that point, especially when I could remember 15 years earlier when the place was a madhouse, hard to find a place to sit in the dining room, and groups of teens huddled around game cabinets waiting for their turn to play while the kitchen staff ran an hour behind making pizzas.

It mostly declined because people were beating the sh*t out of each other there on a daily basis like it was a fight club.

Decline of consumer behavior and the shift of children having access to superior gaming and arcade platforms on their phones and games for free. The best strategy for buying a publicly traded company is if the consumer habits are going towards them or not. If not they need to turn themselves around which chuck e cheese didn't do. They lost out to the escape games and other party places. The arcade has been in decline for a while. The only real way to do so would be exclusivity in purchases like a Fortnite skin that can only be won in a Chuck e Cheese arcade. Stuff like that. Now kids can party with their friends online.

Virtually every big business, and some smaller businesses, killed themselves with crushing debt. Hopefully the newer generation learns from these, and does not fall into the trend of digging themselves into deeper and deeper debt.
