How Game Rooms (Arcades) Can Provide Your Business with An Additional Source of Revenue

Game Room

3 Minute Read

Whether your business operates out of a small 500 square foot storefront or a large 10,000 square foot complex, you should always be striving to maximize your financial return from every inch of your property. After all, you pay rent, taxes, and utilities on the space, so it only makes sense to use it to drive income. Game rooms can be a great option.

Make the Most of Your Space

One of the best ways of accomplishing this feat is by adding a game room into a previously unused or underutilized area of your building. That never-used conference room or disorganized storage space could potentially be providing your business with an additional source of income. This is particularly true if your business sees a lot of foot traffic or you often have customers waiting in a reception area for significant periods of time.

When a customer spots a pinball machine or racing game in the next room, they are instinctively drawn to go check it out. This initial curiosity can often lead to 30 minutes or more of pure, unadulterated enjoyment on the part of your customer - and some extra money in your bank account for you.

Fun For All Ages

Unlike many other sources of additional income that your company can utilize, game rooms are fun and loved by customers all over. While customers are likely to be annoyed if they see you charging for parking or up-selling products to make some extra cash, they will often be excited and happy to see you installing a new game room for them to enjoy. Put simply, adding a game room to your property is truly a win-win situation.

Though creating an additional income stream for your company is likely to be the primary benefit you receive from installing a game room, it is worth pointing out that it can have other positive effects on your business. In particular, a game room can help to drive customers into your store where they may end up spending money on your core group of products or services.

Increase Time on Site

For example, if you operate a restaurant or bar that has a game room, customers are likely to come to your establishment "just to play some pinball for a while" or "to shoot a few hoops on the basketball game with some friends." Before long, however, they will have worked up an appetite and will decide to grab a bite to eat and a couple of milkshakes before they leave. Had you not had the game room on-site, you would have lost out on both the gaming income as well as the food and beverage income.

  • I thought it was interesting that arcade and vending machine games will attract people to just play that, but then they will work up an appetite and stay to use your other services. Personally, I think another benefit is they will draw both adults and children to your establishment because the parents will want to go there to have something their kids can do and the kids will want to go there for the same reason. I’ll have to look more into vendor and arcade games.

  • I liked that you said that one thing to consider when you own an arcade is to best utilize the space in your building in order to fit all of your games inside. I have been thinking about starting my own arcade business but I have been worried that I wouldn’t be able to acquire games that would be desirable for all different age groups. I will be sure to hire a professional to properly utilize my space in order to fit the most amount of games inside to increase profitability.

  • It caught my attention when you said that people will come into our establishment for the games and will probably order food after a while. My brother is thinking about opening a casual restaurant in the city later this year. I’ll encourage him to order some no-chance skill games to attract customers and help business!

  • I agree with your statement about utilizing the space in your building in order to fit all of your games inside. One of my friends manages an arcade room and he wants to be able to acquire games that would be desirable for all ages. I will advise him hiring a technician to repair the one he has in the storage so he can bring them to the facility so the customer can use them too.
