Bowl Weevil

Company Summary

Bowl Weevil is a classic bowling alley owned by Sally Strike. Bowl Weevil specializes in league bowling and parties – a fun filled environment for the entire family. Bowl Weevil will be located in the old Miller building, where the vintage 1920’s charm will help to create an ambience of nostalgic fun.

2.1 Company Ownership

Bowl Weevil is a C Corporation owned by Sally Strike. It is incorporated in the state of Kentucky, and operates in King County.

2.2 Start-up Summary

Bowl Weevil’s start-up costs will include all equipment needed for the bowling alley, the restaurant, inventory and daily bank to cover the total winnings of all pull-tabs.

The bowling alley lanes and restaurant equipment will be the largest chunk of the start-up expenses. These long-term assets include 16 hardwood bowling lanes, 180 pins, 8 electronic scoring terminals, a commercial range and oven, a walk-in refrigerator, video games, pull tab equipment, a sink and dishwasher.

Start-up expenses will include rent during renovation (one month’s deposit and three month’s rent), construction costs of the renovation, and advertising. During the start-up period, we will use both television ads and fliers. We will also place an ad in the Yellow Pages, but this will not be available to potential clients until June, when the new phone book is delivered.
