810 is an upscale entertainment, dining and bar experience that focuses on bringing families and friends together for social interaction, friendly competition and great food.
810 takes upscale entertainment, traditionally available in large metropolitan markets, and makes accessible and affordable for smaller markets. Franchisees can have flexible options to launch their 810 Bowling center...lease a big box space, convert an existing bowling center or build from ground up. 810 has done all three and can expertly guide you through either format.
810’s mission is to bring the big city upscale bowling, entertainment & dining experience to every town USA, with pricing that everyone can afford. To do this they have brought the initial investment to enter the industry down significantly by rethinking the business model, the business footprint and by securing exclusive supply terms for equipment and installation.
810's concept is summed up best by our tagline “Be social®” We seek to create an environment for family and friends to gather and enjoy each other’s company while bowling, playing interactive games (billiards, ping-pong, corn hole, darts, shuffleboard, board games, etc) or watching sports, all while enjoying a full-service guest experience with gourmet food and drink.
810 appeals to candidates who want to be involved in the dining & entertainment space but are looking for a differentiated experience from other bar and casual dining concepts. A fun, diversified concept with broad appeal and demographics.
"By eliminating league play and focusing on the casual open bowling customer we eliminate the need for 32 or more lanes and can instead install fewer lane beds with higher end finishes and a focus on optimizing usage rates and marginal return on investment to determine the correct number of lanes for a new location. This reduction in lane beds combined with the inclusion of other smaller footprint games (billiards, ping – pong, shuffleboard tables, darts, board games, corn hole) results in a broadening of our customer base and a smaller total footprint hence reducing the initial build-out costs."
