The brand is set to launch in Romania, marking its first time on the continent.
Chuck. E Cheese, the family entertainment restaurant franchisor with 556 franchised locations open in 47 states and 17 countries, has signed an agreement with EWAS Management Solutions to bring the brand to Romania for the first time.
“Chuck E. Cheese is thrilled to bring our signature fun, games, and entertainment, to all the kids and families across Romania. This is a significant new partnership, and we look forward to growing our Chuck E. Cheese global franchise family,” said Arun Barnes, COO and senior vice president of international.
“Chuck E. Cheese is well positioned for a strong recovery post-pandemic and international development is a key pillar for the company’s long-term growth. Expanding into the EU is an exciting step for the brand, whilst continuing to bring a safe and fun environment ‘Where A Kid Can Be A Kid’ to families world-wide.”
EWAS Management Solutions group is owned by Gabriel Teodorescu and his wife Anda Teodorescu, who also operate Deziclean, and are distributors for Gusto. The Teodorescu family bring years of retail experience and are excited to bring all the exciting elements of Chuck E. Cheese to Romania.
“I experienced the Chuck E. Cheese brand, with my family, on an international trip and saw an exciting opportunity of bringing this brand to Romania. During our due diligence of the brand, we were impressed with the robust, turn-key, highly profitable franchise business model,” said Gabriel Teodorescu.
