Fun Center Business Plan
Helping family entertainment center developers find and secure their funding with a professionally prepared fun center business plan. The body of the plan is written by a sales and marketing executive with 20 years experience in the Family Entertainment Center (FEC) industry and a list of completed fun center projects in seven countries around the world, including the USA, Canada, Asia, and Europe. The included Financial Statements have been developed by a CMA (Certified Management Accountant) and are based on current North American industry data. ** DO NOT BE FOOLED **By other so-called "Fun Center Plans". We constantly monitor the web for sites and their products. If they do not have a TELEPHONE NUMBER that you can call them at, if you need a secret "password" to login to see something - why are they hiding? If they can not be reached by any means other than an email address - be suspicious and save your money. We are available by phone 6 days a week. The FEC Network and our sister sites have been on-line since 1999 and are the trusted amusement resource.
We purchased the FEC business plan in late June 2008 and were very impressed with the overall layout, information included and the ease of use. The written plan is professional, well documented and outlined a clear and innovative marketing strategy. Although we had completed some of our own research, the financial statements helped us pull the whole thing together in a professional presentation and ultimately helped us secure our funding 2 months later in August 2008. Thank you for such a great service. - D.Spence Houston, TX

The Fun Center Business Plan package is a completed document with financial statements and isbased on existing facilities and industry data .
Information contained within the Fun Center Business Plan and Financial Statements comes from several sources. First, information from the annual reports as published by IAAPA (International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions).
Secondly, the resources of the FEC Network team members. With a combined 30 years experience in the fun center industry, we have helped many entrepreneurs design, build, open and successfully operate their own family entertainment centers. From Canada and the USA to Europe, the Middle East and Asia, we have had a hand in developing many successful fun centers. To ensure on-going accuracy within the plan, we communicate on a regular basis with existing owner/operators which provides a real-time monitor for the accuracy and relevance of the data included within the plan package.
We have paid for the industry reports, we speak directly with existing operators, we have spent time studying and monitoring fun centers from many diverse markets and communities and have taken that raw data and compiled it into an easy to use, accurate set of 'Linked' Microsoft Excel spread sheets and an editable Microsoft Word document that you can useimmediately .

DISCLAIMER: Although the information in this document is based on amusement industry research, compiled and presented professionally and in good faith, the FEC Network makes no representations or warranties as to the completeness or accuracy of the information. With this plan you assume responsibility locally to complete the research needed to start your own business. The success of your fun center depends solely on you.
A typical Investor reviews 500 business plans each year, perhaps more. Of those 500 business plans, the majority are filed, lost or disregarded. Reasons for this are numerous, but Investors commonly complain that many of the business plans they receive are thick, overly ponderous documents. Many Investors will reach for the thin business plans first, finding this strategy most appealing when sifting through several hundred candidates. The ideal length for a business plan, according to many Investors, is 25 pages, with appropriate appendices.
A side note.... Many Investors encourage management to write their own business plan, or at least be involved in the research and development of the plan opposed to hiring an outside professional. The management team needs to feel responsible for the contents of their business plan because they have to perform. Outsiders, such as an accounting firm, assisting a team with their plan, is fine but they should never write the entire document. Outsiders don't have to live up to the plan, management does.
This is a perfect reason for the use of an industry specific fun center 'template' plan. It gives you a solid accurate base to work from, but leaves enough local research and elbow grease to make you intimate with your plan and the local opportunity. Instead of starting at square one and working for 6 months or more, you can step in with a well written plan and spend a couple of weeks refining it for your business goals.
