People will be more likely to visit your bowling alley if they feel safe there. It is therefore very critical to ensure that you put in place proper security at your bowling alley. With proper security arrangements in place, you won’t have to worry about the wellbeing of the people who will be coming to bowl at your alley. Neither will you have to worry about the equipment — which, by the way, you are likely to have spent quite a bit of money on.
You will need to undertake a security assessment, in order to identify the specific security measures to put in place at your bowling alley. Much depends, for instance, on the location of the alley. If it is in a ‘tough’ neighborhood, you will probably have to put in place more stringent security measures than would have been necessary if the alley was in one of the so-called ‘good’ neighborhoods.
Of course, you have to ensure that you don’t spend too much money in trying to secure the bowling alley. Otherwise you will have a difficult time recouping your investment. Chances are that the people who will be coming to bowl at the alley will have modest amounts of money to spend. The average bowler may, for instance, be someone working as a clerk at the nearby Darden restaurant. After spending an entire afternoon trying to figure out how to login to krowd portal, he may decide to come to the bowling alley for a game, in order to relax. This would probably be after finally managing to go past the krowd sign in page, and finding that his paycheck has already been credited to his account. Yet, even in these circumstances, he would probably only be willing to spend a few bucks in paying for the bowling game. Therefore if you spend too much money in securing your bowling alley, and these are the types of clients you are expecting, you won’t be in a position to recoup the investment.
In practical terms, while securing your bowling alley, you can consider:
- Fencing the alley and installing a strong gate
- Putting an alarm system in place
- Employing a guard
- Installing a CCTV system
