TD Bank announced this week that they financed an $8 million project for Jacksonville, Florida based Splitz. TD Bank’s Vice-President for central Florida Leon Kelly focused on its commitment to local business.
“TD Bank is committed to investing in local businesses that not only provide jobs for the community, but also enhance the community with services that residents of all ages can enjoy”, Kelly commented.
The project includes a 26 lane bowling alley with laser tag and an arcade in Orange Park, Florida. Typically, bowling alleys with full entertainment centers can employ at least 50 full and part time employees at mid salary levels. Bowling alleys now target middle to upper middle class clientele, with state of the art facilities.
The cost for a game of bowling has grown substantially reflecting the more modern experience. Additionally, companies such as Splitz look to increase the average consumer spend during the experience such as food and other entertainment. In this case, they will open with a state of the art bar called the Thirsty Gator.
