11 amazing ideas for the old Chuck E. Cheese spot in Rochester, Minnesota

Way back in June of 2021, the news broke that the Chuck E. Cheese in Rochester was on the list of stores that were closing throughout the United States.  Since it has been sitting empty for a bit and we know that Rochester has some smart people in it, we asked YOU what should go in this spot.

11 amazing ideas for what should go in the old Chuck E. Cheese store in Rochester

If you are new to Rochester, Minnesota, you may not even know that at one point all of our kids were celebrating birthdays with their friends at the very popular Chuck E. Cheese store. Back in June of 2020, the company announced that they were closing additional locations throughout the United States and unfortunately Rochester showed up on that list of closings. Since then, the restaurant location by Trader Joe's has been sitting empty and looking sad. We asked people all over Rochester what should go in this spot and here are some excellent answers that would be perfect additions to Rochester.

How did you get all those ideas from people in Rochester?

Such a great question and one that I've been getting quite a bit lately.  We do a lot of polling online as well as during our radio shows.  Watch and follow these spots because more questions will be coming and I'd love for you to be able to have your voice heard too!

25 Ridiculous Myths About Minnesota That People in Other States Believe

My mouth hung open the other day when someone visiting Rochester asked me if I eat SPAM every day.  They were looking for a few cooking tips (which I am NOT the person to come to for that!) but I actually didn't even know how to respond.  SPAM is made just 30 minutes from here but it is NEVER on the menu at my house.   I have tasted it but I'm pretty sure it is a myth that we all love it and eat it every day.  And, that's just one of the many myths people seem to have about the great state of Minnesota.

What's missing from the Minnesota Myth list?
