How to Start a Family Fun Center

Before you can find out if this business makes sense for you or if you qualify for funding, you need a completed fun center business plan. It takes a lot of time and energy to complete a business plan, gathering information, catalogs and prices and compiling that information in a well thought-out, well researched professional format.

This comprehensive, straight forward fun center industry report was put together to give you an honest look at what it takes to build, open and operate a family entertainment center business. From funding options and equipment costs to staffing and management challenges and most importantly, will you make money at it?

What kind of profits can I earn in this business?

This FEC Business report comes complete with an Fun Center Revenue Calculator.

The Revenue Calculator is provided as an estimate of potential revenues based on current amusement industry operations (included as a Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet). It comes complete with real-time industry data including attendance projections, per capita spending, high and low operating expenses, typical marketing budgets and owners salaries.

Here's how to use the Revenue Calculator;

  1. Input your local market demographics
  2. Use the built-in guidelines to determine per capita spending (average dollar spent/person)
  3. Modify your expected operating expenses (included as industry averages)
  4. Use the Revenue Calculator to easily run a variety of ""what-if"" business scenarios.

With the Revenue Calculator you can quickly determine;

  • What is my gross revenue potential?
  • What if I charged more or less for admission? How would that affect my revenues?
  • What if I reduce my annual operating expenses by 5%, how would that affect my income?
  • What if you increase staff salaries by 3%, how would that affect profitability?
  • What if I extend my market area to the next community, how would their additional demographics affect my costs and revenues?

This is a great first-look tool for those who are just starting to think about the idea and are curious to know if the business really makes sense for them. Better understand the market potential before you waste time and money.

Don't waste your time trying to figure out if this makes sense or not by talking to a bunch of commissioned sales staff, it's their job to sell you stuff. How objective are they going to be?
