Which Business Model Suits Your Needs?
These centres blend bowling, music and socialising, with food and beverage sales serving as the main profit centre.
Offering a hip and energetic environment, Boutique Centres frequently cater to young adults and adults. Tenpin bowling and/or mini bowling dominate the entertainment side, though other attractions are often part of the mix as well.
Hybrid Entertainment Centres
As traditional bowling centres start incorporating more attractions, a hybrid concept has emerged, combining various elements of Family Entertainment Centres (FECs).
This model might offer league play part of the week and open play or family entertainment for the rest of it. It might also blend the FEC and Boutique business models, including a variety of activities in conjunction with bowling. Serving as a social scene for adults and young adults, upscale food and beverage sales provide a large part of the revenue.
Core Bowling Centres
Bowling is the core business and main source of revenue here – typically about 70% of total income, with tournament, league and open play contributing equally.
Because bowling is so prominent, most of these centres offer a limited number of other attractions, such as billiards and video games. For this reason, restaurants, if present, get a smaller share of the limelight. You’ll frequently find a pro shop inside these facilities as well.
