by Bob Johnson 0

Frank Entertainment, which operates 231 movie screens on the East Coast, has unveiled plans to develop two new bowling-based family entertainment centers known as SuperPlay USA.
One of the FECs will feature 34 lanes in the high-traffic area of Magnolia Park Town Center in Greenville, S.C.
The other new SuperPlay USA is planned in Horsham, Pa., with 30 lanes.
Frank Entertainment has owned, operated, developed and managed more than 150 entertainment venues since 1906. Its flagship SuperPlay USA is a 70,000-square-foot facility located in Port St. Lucie, Fla., which opened in 2006.
Plans call for the two new FECs to feature state-of-the-art bowling equipment from Brunswick.

Bob Johnson has received more national writing awards than any other bowling writer — close to 70 over the course of his 40-year career. He began at age 16 as a staff writer and then assistant editor for the weekly Pacific Bowler newspaper in his native California, and within three years was writing feature stories for Bowlers Journal. He has written for the magazine ever since, except for a five-year span when he was hired as the founding editor of another magazine. He moved to Chicago in 2000 and spent 13 years in the Windy City, including five as Bowlers Journal’s Editor. In 1975, Johnson received the Robert E. Kennedy Award as California’s top undergraduate high school journalist. Five years earlier, on the lanes, he had shared the Bantam Division Doubles championship in the Orange County Junior Bowling Association Championships. Today, he continues to work full-time for Bowlers Journal as its Senior Editor, to write his popular “Strikes Me” column, and to edit Luby Publishing Inc.’s weekly business-to-business Cyber Report.
