Most new or potential Arcade / FEC facility owners have lots of unanswered questions like :
How many games should I buy? What type of games should I get? How much space do I need, or how many games will fit in my space? What do typical games cost? Are their local or state laws affecting arcades? Where should I locate my arcade
or entertainment center? Should I target kids, adults o
both groups ? What is the best way to advertise my arcade▪ Should I
buy or lease my games ?

Unlike most leisure and entertainment service companies that specialize in only one discipline
of development, such as architecture, business consulting, feasibility studies, interior design, site
design, or training, we take a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to our work with clients.
In the entertainment industry, such firms are referred to as "producers." As such, we can oversee
every aspect of the production of your project from start to finish, or assist you with specific areas,
with the help of our world-class partners who specialize in varied disciplines from project feasibility, design, theming, development, construction, marketing, and even the ongoing management of your project if desired. Our production team includes all the pure design disciplines, such as architecture, interior design, landscape architecture and both civil and mechanical engineering, which can offer
you a true "turnkey" solution for your new or existing entertainment project, anywhere in the world.
Unlike most other "design" firms, it also includes market feasibility experts, financial experts, trainers
and business management experts. In addition, it includes many other disciplines that the typical development process ignores, but are really essential to developing a successful project such as acoustical design, way finding, storyline and theme development, menu and food / beverage design
and start-up, horticultural design and safety experts, to list just a few of areas we have covered.
Our comprehensive approach not only deals with the actual physical facility and its design, but more importantly, with the entire guest experience, which is dependent on aspects of the business including marketing, operations and management. Rather than think of the development process as just the
design of a physical facility, we approach a project's development as the design of an entire business.
When working on a project, no one discipline drives the decision process - Rather, many factors are taken into consideration simultaneously. We believe this gives our clients a distinct advantage. This approach is called "concurrent design" and differs greatly from the typical sequential design process, normally overseen by an architect with limited or no expertise in the multiple, interrelated aspects of designing, marketing and operating a location-based leisure business. When an architect oversees
the process, what results may be a "technically correct" architectural solution, but architecture is only
one piece of the puzzle. Allowing an architectural perspective to dominate the development process
does not result in the best marketing and operations solutions. More important, an architect cannot
design the entire guest experience since they are only looking a one piece of a very complex puzzle.
Using our broad "across the board" expertise, and careful planning, insures your new or existing project will be truly successfully, and will result in the absolute best solution. We work with you from
day one with our multi-disciplinary production team, drawing on our experience every step of the way
During the initial "feasibility" stage of development, we draw on our experienced team to assure
that the project "formula" results in the best available business solution, which is also technically feasible,
and that the revenue, expense and development cost estimates are realistic and achievable. Rather
than delivering to the client a "stock" development formula, which in many cases may be obsolete,
or certainly not the best solution for a particular entertainment site or market, our feasibility studies
result in a custom-tailored product mix and design that is highly tailored to take advantage of
opportunities created by competition and the unique characteristics of the market population.
When it comes to designing a center - both the physical facility and operations - our process
results in a uniquely branded concept with exceptional attention to the hundreds of important
details required to produce a center, that will be :
▪ Completed at the most economical cost
▪ Operates very efficiently and effectively
▪ Produces a high quality guest experience
▪ Is highly profitable and produces excellent ROI.
After all, it is positive guest experiences, not just your theming or architecture, that result in repeated customer visits, with positive "word-of-mouth" experiences shared among your customers friends and also posted online using social media accounting for a major part of your facilities popularity, which in
turn will provide your facility with maximum revenue returns. Add to that very efficient and economical operations, and the result for our clients is higher profits and a higher return on investment. That is
why we take the comprehensive approach to development. It is in the best interests of our clients.
