Chuck E. Cheese's Ranked Number One Kid-Friendly Restaurant by Technomic's Consumer Restaurant Brand Metrics Program

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Chuck E. Cheese's is the place "Where a Kid Can Be a Kid" and guests of all ages can experience a safe, family-friendly environment. In fact, the company was just named the number one kid-friendly restaurant by Technomic's Consumer Restaurants Brand Metrics program, which compiles consumer data about various chains from surveys taken over a two-year period. Out of 80,000 consumer responses, the brand ranked as the most kid-friendly restaurant in unit appearance and ambiance.

The report is the biggest, ongoing brand study that tracks the performance of approximately 115 leading restaurant chains by measuring the consumer experience at these chains through surveys. It is considered a valuable resource for chain operations, suppliers and corporate management, as it helps brands gauge how well they are performing, and the results of the Technomic report are an affirmation that Chuck E. Cheese's is living up to its current "Promise to Parents."

Launched late last fall, the company's five-pillar "Promise to Parents" is the brand's commitment to assure guests of all ages experience a clean and open gameroom environment, fresh food, safety and wholesome family fun. The principles were formed based on feedback from guests.

"As a brand, we strive to create experiences for families to build lasting memories together at Chuck E. Cheese's," said Scott McDaniel, chief marketing officer at Chuck E. Cheese's. "Our 'Promise to Parents' guides our efforts and helps us reach exciting milestones like being rated the country's number one kid-friendly restaurant by Technomic's Consumer Research Brand Metrics."

The company also recently launched a new augmented reality app, Chuck E.'s Say Cheese! which enhances guests in-store experience. The free app allows parents and kids to take fun photos with an animated version of Chuck E. Cheese on any visit to the family restaurant. Guests can share their photos through the app and also by emailing them to where they could also appear on Chuck E.'s Facebook page at

Additionally, guests can also find information about the brand's "Promise to Parents" on the company's website or social media profiles like Twitter, Pinterest and foursquare.
