In case you are one of the many individuals out there who are looking to open up your own arcade or other out-of-home entertainment facility, it is always helpful to read about the experiences that other people have had in pursuing the same idea. While every person will have a different experience in opening up their facility, there are a number of issues that will be encountered by just about every small business owner as they fight to establish their center.
The St. Petersburg Times of Tampa Bay Florida has posted an interview with the owner of an entertainment facility in that area called Xtreme Fun Center, which is owned by Steve McCabe. Steve discusses some of the challenges he faced in opening his facility (such as frequent hurricanes), what is was like transisitioning from a ‘day job’ to running a small business and more. In looking at their website they offer several entertainment options from laser tag, batting cages, an arcade, karaoke and more.
