American restaurant chain Chuck E. Cheese has been selling pizzas on delivery under the guise of Pasqually’s Pizza & Wings, and internet users are losing their minds.
The discovery first came to light when a Philadelphia-based Reddit user going by KendallNeff shared a photo of her conversation with her Grubhub driver. Apparently, she had ordered from a “local business” called “Pasqually’s Pizza & Wings” via delivery service Grubhub.
“Also, just curious… was this food from Chuck E. Cheese?” she questioned her delivery driver through text. The driver confirmed that the order was picked up from a Chuck E. Cheese storefront. After further investigation, the two found out that the name, Pasqually, was actually the name of the restaurant’s pizza chef mascot.
Once the post went viral, a Chuck E. Cheese spokesperson confirmed with Food & Wine that the food from Pasqually’s is made from Chuck E. Cheese’s kitchens. However, the food is deemed to be “more flavorful” and offers customers a “more premium pizza experience.”
Upon learning the revelation, internet users had several reactions, which they have mostly expressed through memes. One social media user divulged, “I didn’t have ‘Chuck E. Cheese is a front organization’ on my quarantine bingo,” while another accused, “Chuck E. Cheese out here catfishing its own pizza and my mom really asking me why I have trust issues.”
