COMPANY OVERVIEW

Company Overview

The core of our concept is to offer our guests Fun, Food, Music and Sports all in one location. We believe we have the ability to become the next largest national chain to offer an extensive assortment of entertainment attractions that include; live-stream concert & event center, state-of-the-art bowling lanes, interactive simulators, online e-sports gaming, skill & sports-oriented video games and GAMETIME’s very own youth and adult sports league program.

Our unique experience is brought together with a full menu of casual dining food items and a full selection of non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverage items, with massive LED and television screens with high quality audio systems providing guests with a venue for watching live sports and other televised events.

The Need

The timing is right to start this new venture. GAMETIME has the unique opportunity to bring a new level of excitement to the Las Vegas area. Known as the “Entertainment Capital of the World” Las Vegas has an endless list of recreational and entertainment venues for the adult tourist demographic; however there is a need for more family entertainment, off-the-strip in a non-casino environment for both locals and visitors. We believe GAMETIME is the answer!

What makes us different?

It’s the unique deliver system that creates the experience for individuals. Unlike other entertainment centers with limited attractions thus, shortening visit times we offer more attractions & events to increase the length of stay at our location. This will generate incremental revenues and improve the guest’s experience. Our guests are a balanced for families with children, teenagers and men and women aged 21 to 39.The format of our store will be flexible, which we believe allows us to size future stores appropriately for each market in which intend to compete. Our store will be approximately 45-50k square feet and will be open seven days a week.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Opportunity to establish a business in a $219 Billion industry
  • A family entertainment business that can be taken global.
  • Highly cash generative business; gross margin of 94% with a 24% net.

“GAMETIME Center will be an experience that will give our customers a sense of total exhilaration, satisfaction and a feeling of their money being well spent. The center will not only be a place for our customers to unwind and relieve themselves from the pressures of day to day responsibilities, at the same time it will be a place for individuals and social groups alike to find a common ground, to have Fun! In this we can provide numerable activities and events for everyone to find interest in, we call it the “Disneyland Effect”. When you come to GAMETIME, you’re sure to leave feeling great! Most importantly, this also provides strong reasons for our customers to return regularly to the center for casual fun, special events and concerts. This will not be a “been there done that” experience.”- Robert Edwards
