How to find the best bowling alleys for sale in Canada
According to Statistics
Canada, there are 485 bowling centres in the country, boasting annual revenues between
C$30,000 and C$5,000,000. An average bowling alley makes C$469,400 a year, making many people open one to grab their
piece of the pie.
However, building a new bowling centre requires a considerable investment, from construction and equipment costs to
hiring employees and marketing expenses.
Buying an already profitable bowling centre removes many expenses from the equation. It also means earning
significant revenue from day one. The current owner has built a reputation and a loyal customer base, lessening the
load for the next owner.
You may not need to hire employees because an established business already has people on the payroll. You can keep
the existing knowledgeable staff and eliminate the recruitment, hiring, and onboarding hassle.
Once you buy your desired business, you only need to continue providing five-star service to retain customers and
attract more bowling enthusiasts. Businesses4Sale can streamline your buying process, helping you transfer ownership
in record time.
Choosing an established bowling centre for sale requires careful thought. Before crunching the numbers to shortlist
the most profitable options, you’ll need to consider location.
Although many Canadians don’t mind travelling to another city to enjoy fun bowling, you may not attract enough
players in the middle of nowhere. A location with high foot traffic is the best way to go.
Once you pick a city or a broader area, consider property size. A bowling centre with thousands of square feet is
perfect for accommodating more bowling lanes and organizing bowling leagues. That’s an excellent way to drive more
people through your door because Canadians are avid league bowlers.
Whether you choose a 14-lane, five-pin bowling alley or a 32-lane bowling alley with a standard ten-pin lane, you’ll
attract many enthusiasts eager to make strikes, doubles, turkeys, and badgers.
Some bowling centres in Canada stand out with laser bowling, evoking nostalgic feelings with fluorescent and black
lighting effects on lanes. Those alleys are the fan favourites that consistently attract old-school players.
Others offer more than pin lanes, retro and modern alike, featuring various family entertainment options, such as
laser tag, arcade games, mini golf, and trampoline parks. Those recreational facilities are traveller favourites that
will bring you the most revenue.
Many bowling centres have separate areas where people can watch sports and enjoy craft beer, while others also have a
rooftop patio with live music entertainment.
One complex even has a 1,200-seat movie theatre, perfect for catching the latest blockbuster after an hour of laser
bowling or an entire day of thrilling activities.

only good old bowling or a more sizable establishment with multiple entertainment options.
