Bowling is back in Winter Garden, Fla. Carter Family Bowl and Pizzeria, which was foreclosed upon last January, re-opened on the day after Thanksgiving, and business has been brisk, according to a report in the West Orange Times & Observer.
The new operators are Jay Hess and Dan Holtzapple, who have leased the center from the bank. The facility’s new name is Winter Garden Bowl.
Local high school teams that had been forced to move to outlying centers have returned, and numerous birthday and company parties have been conducted.
The new operators invested in new Brunswick ball returns, new bumpers, new gutters, a new light show and new kitchen equipment. Their three-year plan also includes new monitors, a new bar area, a new game room and remodeled bathrooms.
