Paintball Facility Business Plan

Company Summary

The facility site is a ten-acre tract of wooded flat land with an old industrial building and adjacent parking lot, located in what is quickly becoming the most desirable business area of York County. This is the center of York County's commercial development. The market for a paintball facility in York County is superior to most, due to the tremendous population growth during the past five years, the overwhelming majority of which is within ten miles of the facility. In addition, the area has Lawrence University with a student population of 15,000.

Paintball is a growing participation sport in the United States. Paintball facilities grossed over $100 million in sales last year. By far, the most significant factor to affect the paintball business in the forthcoming decade is the dramatic growth of the 16-25 year old segment of the population, which will increase by 54%. This age group represents the prime segment of the population that joins paintball leagues, and that means bottom-line profit for the facility will increase. The facility will be the most modern in southern Washington.
