Should I care about which types of projects a bowling contractor usually focuses on?
Nearly all bowling alley contractors focus on large commercial bowling centers because they are the most lucrative projects with the biggest contract value. These contractors will take small projects, but it's not their primary focus. It takes roughly the same amount of legwork and paperwork for a salesperson to sell a 40-lane project as it does a 2-lane project. Thus, larger projects get more attention and smaller projects are more likely to be pushed to the back burner. Large projects require fast installation since construction loan interest accruing, and revenue can't be generated until the project is complete. So, speed and quantity inevitably get prioritized over quality.
Fusion Bowling, on the other hand, is the only company that specializes in small, private projects (usually 1 to 4 lanes), which are usually installed in a single-family residence or multifamily clubhouse amenity. Our customers typically require a lot of hand-holding - they want us to guide them through the process since they aren't in the bowling business. They require graphic design, coordination with interior designers, and unique customization. We typically work in buildings that are NOT centered around the bowling equipment. Thus, we're used to working very carefully with very expensive finishes installed by other trades in custom homes, for example. Check out our resources page
