EWAS Management Solutions is owned by Anda and Gabriel Teodorescu. “I experienced the Chuck E. Cheese brand, with my family, on an international trip and saw an exciting opportunity of bringing this brand to Romania,” said Gabriel.

“During our due diligence of the brand, we were impressed with a robust, turn-key, highly profitable franchise business model,” Teodorescu added.

Chuck E. Cheese operates nearly 100 international locations across 17 regions. It recently opened its first venue in El Salvador and its eighth location in Peru.
