District Manager Joe Risnear, who was in town to host the Dec. 11 ribbon cutting and grand re-opening event, said Chuck E Cheese corporate invested nearly $1 million in the upgrade.
The restaurant, located on Hwy. 85 just south of Banks Road, first received exterior treatments, including a façade upgrade and new doors. From there, the interior was overhauled to include new countertops, lighting, furniture, flooring and bathroom fixtures. The video game arcade was also revamped to offer new games and more ticket blasters.
Grownups will appreciate an enhanced food bar with expanded menu offerings for the adult palette.
General Manager Lorenzo Leverette, a 29-year Chuck E Cheese veteran, will continue to operate the corporate-owned restaurant, which has been in Fayetteville 16 years. The restaurant employs 42 people.
