Cashing in on Concessions

If you run a family entertainment center, you probably know the benefits of a well-stocked snack bar. Most skating rinks, bowling alleys, and laser tag arenas report concessions as the third highest source of revenue for their business. Birthday parties take the cake, but they also provide another opportunity for sharing pizza and French fries with hungry customers. But with all that revenue potential, many leisure venues aren’t living up to their menu potential.

Running a Leisure Business

A 2007 Roller-Skating Association survey determined that over 75% of rink owners serve pizza and hot dogs at their snack bars. The same survey concluded that food sales account for 18.7% of total yearly profits. Entertainment centers that cook with a Quik n’ Crispy hot air fryer see concession profits increase to 20-23% of their total business. With 50%-70% profit margins on each food item sold, the Quik n’ Crispy pays for itself in under a year.

Faster, Healthier Food Preparation

Ease of use and safety of kitchen equipment, menu versatility, and the taste of the finished product are all key components of a thriving snack bar. The Quik n’ Crispy greaseless fryer allows skating rinks and bowling alleys to prepare large quantities of hot, healthy food without sacrificing taste. “Jump A Roos is the largest indoor inflatable play and party center in Miami, and although we do not have a full kitchen, our food business is very profitable,” explains owner Gregory H. Fefferman. “The Quik n’ Crispy is reliable, easy to use, and produces fabulous food in minutes without the need for a vent hood and other cost prohibitive expenses.” Howie Makler of Howie’s Game Shack also raves about the ease of preparing delicious, grease-free snacks. And in a world where hundreds of customers handle the same equipment, greaseless food goes a long way to increasing sanitation.
