Chuck E. Cheese's International Expansion Scores with Mexico, Saudi Arabia New Store Openings

Chuck E. Cheese's plan to open more than 80 international franchise locations in the next six years is right on track with the new locations in Mexico City, Mexico, and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The new additions to the international family bring the total operating store count outside the U.S. and Canada to 21, with an anticipated 10 to open in 2014, including one new country, Trinidad. The new Mexico City Chuck E. Cheese's, first in the city and second in the country, features innovations on the American concept such as a coffee bar and an upstairs area with private party rooms available as part of a new premium party package. On the menu, local guests will find a Mexican-style pizza topped with chorizo sausage and jalapeños. Guests in Riyadh, the fifth restaurant under the Chuck E. Cheese's umbrella in Saudi Arabia, will also find a local favorite seafood-style pizza on the menu and high-quality coffee and pastries at an in-store coffee bar. In addition to fun, food and games for family members of all ages, each new store also brings with it at least 50 jobs for staff management and cast members as well as added employment during the construction and development of each restaurant.
