A new concept is capitalizing on the popularity of games and the billion-dollar pizza industry. Rick Mansel, president of HGS Franchise LLC has announced the availability of Howie's Game Shack franchises.
The stores emphasize state-of-the-art gaming PCs, Xboxes with high-def LCD displays and sound chairs, world premier game releases (analogous to new movie premiers), and tournaments and competitions to win valuable prizes. Fresh-baked pizza, snacks and beverages are available for consumption while playing.
At Howie's Game Shack, young people can pursue their love of gaming in a family friendly environment at an affordable price. Each center provides a unique social venue that brings people together in fun competition by combining the popularity of video games with the competitive nature of sports.
Howie's centers are among the largest PC and Xbox game centers in North America and each is designed to satisfy the gaming community's desire for large permanent gaming arenas where "gamers" can "meet and compete" in person, or over the Internet.
Joe Daichendt, CEO and chief gamer at Howie's, described a few of the benefits franchisees could expect. "Based on our experience over the last several years in building, operating, and promoting large game centers, we have developed an extensive business model which affords franchisees with an essential plan for building a gaming business," Daichendt said.
"Franchisees will receive assistance in selecting a location, negotiating a lease, and building out their center. Marketing assistance and management/technical training are available and, in the end, franchisees will enjoy the benefits of Howie's Game Shack's brand recognition and business model," he said.
Howie's Game Shack franchises are available only in jurisdictions where HGS Franchise LLC has either registered its franchise offering or is exempted from such registration. For information please visit www.howies.com, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (949) 340-7791.
