Bowling Alley for Sale

Don't settle for a spare -- score a strike with BizQuest's bowling alleys for sale listings!

Bowling alleys have been a staple of American culture for more than 50 years. By the year 2000, the game was the 4th most popular sport in the nation, with many Americans participating in a bowling league on a regular basis. Although indoor smoking bans in the early 2000s led to a significant drop in league business, smart bowling alley owners renovated and adapted. If you find a bowling alley for sale today, you're likely to find one with multiple revenue streams.

Many of today's bowling centers feature computerized scoring, other high-tech options like Wi-Fi, and flexible family and children leagues -- all departures from the traditional bowling alleys of yesteryear. Extra amenities such as video arcades, dartboards, pool tables, lounges, live music, and on-site childcare are huge draws. Many bowling centers for sale these days have expanded food and drink selections, liquor licenses, and both dine-in and take-out options. Not surprising, facilities like these tend to have the widest customer base.

Don't think bowling takes a backseat in these modern bowling centers. They generally promote bowling in new and creative ways, such as offering odd-hour bowling madness tournaments and adjusting their business hours. Some even offer 24-hour limited service for loyal customers who have unusual work schedules. Browse the BizQuest site to find great bowling alley lanes for sale!
