The organization’s parent company, CEC Entertainment Inc., made the announcement in a press release distributed earlier this week.

“As of June 24, 266 company-operated Chuck E Cheese and Peter Piper Pizza restaurant and arcade venues had safely re-opened, in accordance with all CDC, federal, state and local guidelines,” said the release
According to the company’s website, the Ocala location is one of those that should remain open. The location has since opened its doors after the Coronavirus shut down all locations nationwide for multiple months.
