Vintage Showbiz Pizza Place Wall Sign Vintage:
ShowBiz Pizza Placewas a restaurant pizza chain andfamily entertainment centerfounded in 1980 byRobert L. BrockandCreative Engineering. The brand emerged following a separation between Brock and Pizza Time Theatre, owners of theChuck E. Cheese'sfranchise. ShowBiz Pizza restaurants entertained guests through a large selection of arcade games, coin-operated rides, andanimatronicstage shows as a way to provide a complete package of food and entertainment.
Both companies became competitors and found early success, partly due to the rise in popularity of arcade games during the late 1970s and early 1980s. The type of animatronics used in the ShowBiz pizza chain – which featured an overall-clad, hillbilly bear named Billy Bob as one of its central characters – distinguished it from its rival which offered many of the same services. Following Pizza Time Theatre's bankruptcy filing in 1984, however, ShowBiz bought the struggling franchise and formed ShowBiz Pizza Time Inc., a combination of the former companies' names. All ShowBiz locations were eventually rebranded Chuck E. Cheese by 1992.
