Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Chicago Chuck E Cheese faces a forced shut down by the mayor after continued safety issues. Oak
Lawn Chuck E Cheese on 95th Street has a longstanding history of 911 calls
and police responses, says the town's mayor. This week the mayor announced
further action against the restaurant is still being considered by city
officials. The action by city officials comes after numerous safety issues
such as shootings and fights within the facility.
The Lawn Oak Mayor is concerned the kid’s amusement-themed restaurant’s
repeated problems poses a threat to its customers and workers. The Mayor
says the restaurant opened more than 30 years ago and year after year
the problems are just getting worse. According to police, 46 calls to
911 at the restaurant location were made in 2015 and 43 have been made
so far in 2016. A spokesperson for Chuck E Cheese said in a statement
that safety is one of the company’s core values. Authorities say
even after putting close to $1,000 into added security, problems are escalating.
Some patrons say they don’t want to see the restaurant shut down,
according to a local news station. The board will consider a revocation
of their business license. The establishment does serve alcohol and may
contribute to the problems.
