Why 810 Billiards & Bowling? Why Now?
810 Billiards & Bowling combines a full-service dining-and-bar model with a range of entertainment options that appeal to all demographics. On any night, one might find live music, a bustling arcade, a full 18-hole mini-golf course and a number of other games and entertainment options including the private “back alley” where the bowling takes place.
That’s not just a lot of options for customers, but it’s also a lot of revenue streams for owners. The variety of games and entertainment options come with very little overhead.
What Sets 810 Billiards & Bowling Apart?
What sets 810 Billiards & Bowling apart from similar concepts is that while most restaurants get customers in with dining and hope to make money off of alcohol sales, 810’s menu focuses on fan-favorites with high margins. Think brick-oven pizzas and shareable wing platters, but also an extensive salad menu for the health-conscious. While the food service is streamlined and profitable, the real money lies in the games. Foosball, darts, board games and games like cornhole have a low overhead and high margins while bigger attractions like pool tables and bowling lanes draw customers from miles around.
Why the Category?
810 Billiards & Bowling’s key innovation is the combination of a full-service dining-and-bar model with a range of entertainment options that appeal to all demographics.
Call it, “eatertainment.”
Guests can enjoy a casual atmosphere while bowling or playing another game like foosball, darts, jenga, corn hole or shuffleboard, while enjoying 810’s wide variety of food and drink options. Whatever a customer’s preference, 810 has them covered.
Why Franchisees Love the Brand?
Michael Siniscalchi, 810’s CEO, built a franchise model that prioritizes support and transparency. And it's attracting both new and experienced franchisees.
Rylan Miller built an impressive career for himself in the military, serving first in the Navy before taking a job in defense contracting. But Miller always had an entrepreneurial spirit, and a few years back, he changed paths and opened up his first business with smoothie franchise Tropical Smoothie Cafe. Miller’s success with that brand inspired him to branch out into other franchise concepts, which eventually led him to 810 Billiards & Bowling.
“My plan is to invest in good brands that complement each other well,” he said. “They also have to be scalable. I like the growth opportunity that 810 Billiards & Bowling provides, and it can really help people grow their business and career.”
The Investment and How Much Can I Make?
The initial investment to franchise with 810 Billiards & Bowling ranges from $1.5 million to $3 million, including a $50,000 franchise fee. Franchisees will find a high margin of revenue streams through the games, early positive cash flow, and long-term security.
