BOWL EXPO BOOT CAMPS TO FOCUS ON 4 AREAS OF CENTER OPERATION

Four Boot Camps laser-focused on improving revenues and profits in various areas of bowling center and bowling entertainment center operation have been scheduled in conjunction with BPAA’s International Bowl Expo 2021.

The Boot Camps will kick off an education-heavy agenda in Louisville, Ky., on Sunday, June 20, and each session will be limited to 32 attendees. Here’s a look at the topics…

LEAGUE AND GUEST DEVELOPMENT

League bowler development hasn’t really changed over the past 40 years, but it’s a skill set that has not been shared with the new generation. What was simply “tribal knowledge” is now documented, created by the BPAA League Development Committee. This Boot Camp will provide bowling center owners, operators, managers and other personnel with fast and efficient guidance on the development and retention of league bowlers. The full-day session takes a deep dive into the system to provide the tools and techniques necessary to meet a center’s league goals, regardless of the season or one’s league development experience.

Presented by BPAA Education Coordinator Gerald Morrow.

TALENT ACQUISTION (RECRUITING AND RETAINING TALENT)

Where did all the good candidates for hire go? With unemployment rates at lower than 3% in some cities and regions, it seems there aren’t many good prospects available. Hope is not lost. This course for proprietors, managers and H.R. directors will help to create a culture in your center that not only retains the good employees, but makes your center a destination that good candidates seek out.

Presented by BPAA Director of Membership and Educational Services Bart Burger.

MAXIMIZING FOOD PROFITS IN A TRADITIONAL CENTER

Offering bowlers outstanding food and beverage in addition to their bowling experience will greatly increase a center’s revenue. In this unique look at bowling center F&B, a case study of a BPAA-member center will be reviewed, including menu and menu engineering, branding, guest experience, cost of goods, food quality and ordering. Breaking down these aspects first hand will reveal the keys to a successful bowling center F&B operation.

Presented by Mike Holtzman, President of Profitable Food Service.

GAMES AND REDEMPTION PROFITABILITY

Coordinating with the extensive research and compilation of information by BPAA’s FEC Committee, Bowling University’s John Karabatsos brings his years of experience in games and redemption with Brunswick and NAMCO Entertainment to life in this Boot Camp on the next level of operations of games and redemption for bowling centers and bowling entertainment centers.
