"By producing a video, we were able to share this procedure with our customers in a way that shows the true integrity of the process. Chuck E. Cheese's is very proud of our gluten-free items, and we're honored to be recognized by PR News as a finalist for our YouTube video," said Joe Elliot, Chuck E. Cheese's vice president of research and development.
In addition to receiving more than 56,000 views on YouTube to date, the video has also been shared with the gluten-free community and Chuck E. Cheese's fans nationwide on social media, blogs and news outlets.
