The idea for this business came from both an interest in the electronic industry, and the emergence of the Bar/Arcade style businesses that have become successful in the past decade. The most popular being the Franchise Barcade. The goal of this business is to draw multiple types of individuals to our establishment. This may include people in their late 20’s and up who have a Nostalgic feeling for the arcade businesses of old, which have for the most part disappeared from the North American market. This factor can also go to younger individuals who have never went to an arcade before and want to experience it for the first time. While these are the types of people who may be drawn to the arcade side of the business their will also be the consumers who simply want a destination in which to grab a drink with friends and use it as a regular bar.
With this business the main competitive advantage is the focus on the arcade machines that will be usable in the establishment. However, the main source of revenue will be the selling of alcoholic beverages. While arcade machines can provide revenue it is not enough to sustain a whole business. This was the driving factor that resulted in the closing of multiple arcades in the early 2000’s.
When researching this idea, the market for arcades in both North America and Japan were looked at. determine the major differences and what made them successful. The research helped prove that this style of business can be profitable.
