Build your project with the #1 participatory sport in America!

People bowl for competition and recreation more than any other sport in the US.

Why is bowling so profitable?

• Wide Age Demographic from ages 2 – 100 • Anchor entertainment for families. • All cash business with no accounts receivable. • Virtually no inventory. • Higher gross profits

Recommended Demographic Demographics play a key role in determining the size and type of center that would be most successful. In the US, bowling industry professionals typically recommend a population density of 2,000 people per lane within a 5-7 mile radius of the project site; for instance, a 24-lane center should be located in a community with a population of 48,000-50,000 people. However, we recommend a denser population rate at 2,500-3,000 per lane. There are other factors that impact these determinations, such as average household income and the project’s proximity to other centers. Helping you to plan the best fit for your business is just one of the services Allied Bowling provides.

We are here to help make you successful.

BOUTIQUE LOUNGE Boutique lounges blend bowling, music and socializing. In this type of center, food and beverage sales serve as the main profit center. Catering to the 21 to 38-year-old demographic, they are furnished with an upscale, plush style. These centers also contain rooms with separate lanes for corporate or private parties. Boutique lounges are not viable for sanctioned leagues, making string pinsetters such as Allied Bowling’s LINK System a perfect fit.


FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT CENTERS (FEC) FEC’s provide fun for all ages. In addition to full-sized bowling, they feature a plethora of attractions such as: mini bowling, arcade games, laser tag, go-carts, bumper cars and indoor mini golf. They also have facilities for both birthday and corporate parties, which generate significant revenue.

HYBRID CENTERS Hybrid centers are growing in popularity. Most hybrid centers will incorporate cinema screens, private bowling lounges, restaurants and bars, creating an optimal entertainment facility for customers. These centers have the ability to offer both league play and family recreation.
