Bright Sun Films presents 'Bankrupt - Chuck E Cheese's', a tale of the Retail Apocalypse

I haven't written about the Retail Apocalypse since Company Man asks 'The Decline of Borders...What Happened?' A tale of the Retail Apocalypse for Flashback Friday last month, so I consider Jake Williams of Bright Sun Films uploading Bankrupt - Chuck E Cheese's yesterday to be perfect timing.

Starting from the novel idea of adding animatronics and arcade machines to a pizza restaurant, Chuck E Cheese's grew into an enormous, world wide chain. Though, not without issues as the company has suffered two bankruptcies, fierce competition from copycat chain, Showbiz Pizza, and an overall decline in popularity. Join me today as I explore the fascinating and turbulent history of the restaurant chain and find out if this twice bankrupt company has any chance for a future.
I've written a lot about the bankruptcy of Chuck E. Cheese's but not since The rise, fall, rise, and fall again of Chuck E. Cheese, a tale of the Retail Apocalypse two years ago. It was about time that Jake turned his attention to this story and dug into the details. The tale needed it, as well as an update on the past two years.
