The Family Fun Centers (FFCs) Industry generated approximately $9B in 2014 which is forecasting almost 3% growth each year to 2019. As per capita disposal has risen during the last 2 years revenue growth tapered down which was a result of families choosing more expensive Family Entertainment Centers (FECs) such as amusement parks instead of local specialized FFC options. As the jobless rate declines and consumers become leisure-time restricted they will choose local specialized FFCs. Additionally, the prevalence of Americans aged under 18 will increase to 25% of the population by this year and will continue to grow almost 1% for years to come.
This Company has maintained a successful Family Fun Center for almost 20 years. Throughout the years investments have been made to upgrade facilities and technology when appropriate. The business is Family owned and operated by the second generation. The business has enabled two generations of owners to maintain a comfortable lifestyle and retire well.
