DALLAS, Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Chuck E. Cheese's® is kicking off National Pizza Month this October with a pizza sampling event hosted by singer and actress Christina Milian in Los Angeles on Oct. 4. During the event geared for the whole family, Milian will shine the spotlight on the family dining and entertainment leader's delicious pizzas which have earned a starring role on its menu.
"We're thrilled to partner with Christina Milian for this fun pizza pop-up event," said Michael Hartman, chief marketing officer of CEC Entertainment Inc. "We know she's a huge fan of our pizza, and we're confident that guests who sample our pizza during the event will love it too. In fact, our thin and crispy pepperoni pizza just beat Pizza Hut® in a nationwide blind taste test for a second time."
People can try the award-winning pizza for themselves during the event at Hollywood & Highland in Los Angeles on Oct. 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. PST. Chuck E. Cheese's will be giving away thousands of free samples of its family favorite pizzas including Cali Alfredo, Pepperoni and Cheese. Given Chuck E. Cheese's is all about providing a family fun experience, the event will feature its famed Ticket Blaster, prizes, and of course, Chuck E. Cheese and friends! Chuck E. will make his red carpet debut as a 20-foot inflatable while all five members of Mr. Munch's Make Believe Band will also join in on the fun.
Milian will accompany Chuck E. Cheese's culinary mastermind Executive Chef Gregory Casale to serve up his creations. Chef Casale leads the test kitchen at the company's Dallas headquarters and was responsible for refreshing the restaurant's menu. Chuck E. Cheese's pizzas are made in-house everyday with freshly-made dough, 100% whole milk mozzarella cheese and sauce made with vine-ripened tomatoes. Chuck E. Cheese isn't just for kids – its pizzas have moms like Milian singing its praises too.
"Everyone in my family loves going to Chuck E. Cheese's" said Christina Milian. "My daughter loves it for the games, tickets and prizes and I'm obsessed with their yummy pizza. My pick is the pepperoni."
A family favorite destination for 40 years, Chuck E. Cheese's is now quickly becoming known for its adult-friendly menu, as much as its fun and games. The pizza, endless salad bar, and dessert buffet in many locations make for a kid-pleasing, mom-approved family dining experience.
