Crashing the Party at Chuck E. Cheese


Minyanville investigates what's going on inside these urban war zones.

Chuck E. Cheese (CEC) is a great place to have a kid's party. Except when that party gets interrupted by small scale riots, drug deals gone awry, and cold-blooded killings.

According to law-enforcement officials, Chuck E. Cheese restaurants have become hotbeds of violence, as the number of on-premise assaults officers respond to is often "far higher than at nearby restaurants, and even many bars," according to the Wall Street Journal.

Despite the violence, analysts still like CEC entertainment, which operates Chuck E. Cheese. They point to strong cash flow and international growth that's picking up. Currently, the stock is trading near its 52-week high.

Now plenty of respectable news outlets have been reporting this strange story for months. But few reporters have dared to actually enter these urban war zones.

Until now.

Join Minyanville's Josh Lipton for a closer look.
