Conducting a
Feasibility Study

Begin by acquiring a feasibility study for your bowling center project. Ensure the study is tailored to your project specifically, avoiding generic, cookie-cutter models. Adopt a somewhat conservative approach in forecasting to enhance the chances of exceeding projections.

Identify
Best-In-Class Vendors

Once the feasibility study confirms project viability, focus on identifying top-tier vendors. Seek excellent architects, construction professionals, bowling product suppliers, arcade distributors, and reputable companies for attractions like Laser Tag or Mini-golf. Carefully choose vendors as they will be integral to the success of your project and long-term partners.

Financial
Plan

With the feasibility study, vendors, and pricing in place, focus on securing financing. Combine investment capital and bank financing for a comprehensive financial plan. Commence construction and prepare for the exciting journey of building and opening your bowling entertainment center to the public.

DIVERSIFY YOUR SUCCESS

BEYOND TRADITIONAL REVENUE

Maximize your center’s potential with innovative approaches. Over the last decade, the bowling business has evolved, with centers integrating diverse attractions like arcades, laser tag, mini-golf, go-karts, escape rooms, ax throwing, and more. Our experience in operating various attractions ensures expert guidance in selecting and optimizing the right mix for your facility. These attractions, suitable for indoor or outdoor spaces, contribute significantly to revenue diversification.

Groups and Events

FEC attractions not only boost revenue but also generate group and party business, accounting for 25-35% of gross revenues. Opportunities extend beyond birthdays to lucrative corporate events such as holiday parties, team off-sites, happy hours, and team meetings, often occurring during weekdays, making them more valuable than weekend business.

Bowling Experience

Enhance the modern bowling experience with critical upfront decisions. Choose between string pinsetters and “free fly” pinsetters, considering the precision and maintenance aspects. Opt for boutique bowling spaces with reserved lanes, dedicated bars, enhanced lighting, and the immersive Spark Bowling experience for interactive games.

Food and Beverage

Upgrade from the traditional snack bar to restaurant-quality options. The menu, though not extravagant, should meet high-quality standards, making customers happy to dine in your facility. Cater to corporate events with a kitchen capable of handling groups of 100+ operationally. Tailor your menu to your target demographic.

FEC Attractions

The arcade stands as the most profitable attraction, essential for success. With nearly a century of experience, our expertise ensures revenue generation beyond industry standards. Depending on available space, competition, and target demographics, consider additions like laser tag, miniature golf, virtual reality, go-karts, and bumper cars. Outdoor options include go-karts, miniature golf, ropes courses, pickleball, and volleyball.
