Hey guys, I am a local to Twentynine for 4 years now. I am in the process of getting my business loan approved right now and wanted some feed back from y'all. What would you think of a modern arcade in 29? I am nearly done with the paperwork process, well about halfway, I found my spot I want, the old Mango Hut spot near the post office. I tried for a better location but everything on the main strips dont have kitchens. I want to do pizza, basic carnival style foods there, and use the old dining area as a gaming center. But a modern one, with 8 X Boxes on the wall, a WII station, a long table under the front windows for laptops. Music on, a few old school arcade games, claw machine, gum ball machines so on... and a seating area with tables and bean bags for football games that come on TV. I have children and have had a hard time finding a local cheap spot for my kids to hangout. Would you visit us? What would you like to see? I am thinking setting up outdoor tables too, just an all around youth hangout spot.
Well, I would rather bring my kids to a typical arcade...tokens and arcade games. We have a game system so bringing them somewhere else to pay for the same thing they can do at home does not seem like something I would do.
I will tell you what I would LOVE!! A roller rink ;o)
And yeah, I know its super small. Its what I can afford to start and not many vacant spots in 29 have a full service kitchen in them either. Im doing more of a cafe style food area not really "restaurant" style. So I think it will work. I get free reign to remodel too.
There used to be a skating rink a long time ago and a theater. The old arcade used to be across the street from the banks in town. It is now a karate and florist store. It was called The Silver Quarter Arcade.
