Our Purpose

As A Franchise Owner, the Purpose Becomes the Mission

810 Billiards & Bowling is an upscale entertainment, dining and bar experience that focuses on bringing families and friends together for social interaction, friendly competition and great food. We want to take upscale entertainment, traditionally only available in large metro markets at premium price points, and make it accessible and affordable. With different formats available, we are able to scale the model for success in a wide variety of markets.

Our Environment

Not your average bowling alley, all 810 locations leverage state of the art bowling equipment, wait service at all lanes and tables, a full scratch kitchen and tasteful design to create a destination that customers love both for a night out with friends and for large group outings
and special events.

We leverage a proprietary manufacturing relationship to offer our franchisees state of the art bowling equipment at significantly reduced prices. All 810 bowling lanes are brand new, equipped with automated, interactive scoring systems, automatic bumpers, our signature furniture package and feature lighting built-in.

Events & Customer Profile

As opposed to traditional bowling centers, 810 locations offer a private “back alley” of 4 to 8 lanes.  This creates a more upscale feel and can be utilized as a destination for corporate team building, holiday parties, adult birthday parties, and special event celebrations.

810 benefits from appealing to a wide array of different customers, from families and children’s birthday parties in the afternoons, to young adults at the bar late night- we offer something for everyone.

Our Marketing

The company utilizes a structured marketing approach to drive brand awareness. Through digital media advertising, social media and print advertising we steadily grow our audience year to year.


The combo of appealing photography and a strong graphic library has enabled us to maximize outreach to target demographics. Our marketing strategy is both effective for the brand and cost-efficient for the franchisee.

Our Competition

While there are other players in our industry such as KingsBowl, Lucky Strike and Bowlmor, they are all corporately-owned and unavailable for participation through a franchise system.

  • 810 is unique in being the only bowling and entertainment concept available for franchising
  • We offer move variety in revenue streams than  any other available entertainment concept
