“We want to assure parents and caregivers that we take great measures to protect the experience children and families have in our restaurants, and maintaining a safe experience for our guests and staff is a primary concern for us, just as it is top-of-mind for the families and parents who visit us,” said Christelle Dupont, a spokeswoman for Irving, Texas-based CEC Entertainment Inc., the parent company of Chuck E.
