Brunswick Partners with Former Employee to Open High-End QC Family Entertainment Center
Forward-thinking entrepreneurs continue to satisfy the increased demand for bowling and family entertainment and have transformed empty spaces into high-tech entertainment centers. The brand new QC Family Entertainment Center now occupies the space of the former Cohen’s Furniture building in Moline, Ill.
As a leader within the bowling equipment industry, Brunswick Bowling works directly with entrepreneurs to create world-class bowling centers filled with luxurious amenities. This center is unique in that Frank Miroballi, instructor for Precision Pinsetter Service, also runs the Brunswick A and A2 Pinsetter Maintenance School, a 12-day course designed to ensure safe and smooth pinsetter operation.
The 48,500-square-foot center, which opened in August 2012, offers Illinois residents year-round entertainment including:
• 32 luxury bowling lanes equipped by Brunswick
• Eight specially outfitted boutique-style lanes for leagues and private parties
• Arcade/game room with 50 to 70 arcade games
• 3,000-square-foot sports bar/lounge
• Four party rooms
• Satellite bar and 110-seat restaurant
• Two-story, 3,500-square-foot laser tag area
Within this newly opened bowling center, bowlers enjoy Brunswick Vector® Scoring which makes it easy to select from an array of creative themes and graphics to create a personalized score sheet appealing to every age and skill level. These customized graphics are fun and interactive as they are cued to every bowling frame and situation.
“I’ve been affiliated with Brunswick for 25 years through the A2 training school,” says Frank Miroballi, owner of QC Family Entertainment Center. “When it came down to it, I chose Brunswick mainly because of familiarity – familiarity and quality of service that I’m going to get. I still deal with people who were there when I was hired [by Brunswick 25 years ago]. I have Brunswick at my other centers, and they provided the consistency I needed for all my centers. It’s been a wonderful ride.”
