For lack of a better term, I think Chuck E Cheese is 'catfishing' the public for takeout pizza during a pandemic. According to Business Insider, the company listed a restaurant on online ordering sites like GrubHub under the name “Pasqually’s Pizza and Wings.”

Pasqually was one of the animatronic characters you'd see on the stage when the band came out to play during Little Johnny’s birthday party. It is named after the make-believe chef/drummer in Chuck E’s gang.

"Pasqually's Pizza & Wings, named after another favorite member of 'Munch's Make Believe Band,' shares kitchen space with the Chuck E. Cheese restaurant," a Chuck E. Cheese representative told Business Insider. “Pasqually's Pizza & Wings is a new, delivery-only premium pizza brand operating from Chuck E. Cheese kitchens.”

Even though I haven’t had a pizza from Chuck E Cheese’s Dartmouth location in at least a decade, I remember it was actually pretty good. A representative told Business Insider that Pasqually's is a better-quality product than you’d find at the kid’s play space. "Pasqually's Pizza & Wings' recipes use fresh, homemade pizza dough, just like Chuck E. Cheese, but it is a different pizza that features a thicker crust, extra sauce, and new blends of cheeses and seasonings, giving consumers a more flavorful, more premium pizza experience."

I wanted to test this out myself. I started an order at GrubHub.com, but the restaurant was listed as “closed” both times I tried, one hour apart. I even tried ordering a pizza from Chuck E Cheese and Pasqually's directly from the store over the phone. No-can-do. If I ever get through, I’ll report back.
