Bowling Center Management is the industry’s leading business publication and official trade magazine of the Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America. Started in 1995, Bowling Center Management, or “BCM” as it’s known in the industry, provides bowling center operators with revenue-generating articles, valuable advice columns from a collection of seasoned bowling business specialists and insider industry information each month.
The magazine is regarded throughout bowling as the quintessential “owner’s manual” for bowling center proprietorship.
BCM was created in 1995 under the leadership of Keith Hamilton and Mike Panozzo, owners of Luby Publishing, Inc. The company, which also publishes Bowlers Journal International and Billiards Digest, the two foremost bowling and billiards publications in the world, sought to provide bowling center proprietors with the industry’s only magazine devoted exclusively to bowling center operators. To this day, BCM still holds that distinction.
In 2005, BCM and its creators were honored with the BPAA Special Projects Award, recognizing the publication’s contributions to the industry. BCM has also collected dozens of awards in the annual American Bowling Congress/American Bowler/USBC Writing Competitions, receiving the most honors of any bowling business publication.
