After rumors floated around for weeks, the parent company of Chuck E. Cheese’s has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

CEC Entertainment blames the COVID-19 pandemic for the extended closure of its restaurants and entertainment areas.

By filing for bankruptcy, CEC hopes the company can successfully find a financial plan that “supports its re-opening and longer-term strategic plans.”

About half of Chuck E. Cheese’s 555 locations have reopened across the country as restrictions on in-restaurant dining have lifted in many states.
