It’s no secret that one key to a bowling center’s ongoing success is the maintenance of clean restrooms for customers. Survey after survey has shown that businesses of all kinds often are judged by the cleanliness of their restrooms.
With that in mind, Chipper’s Lanes in Fort Collins, Colo., remodeled its restrooms last summer.
And now, the center is going to refurnish them again.
Only this time, it’s more of a necessity than a choice.
Just before 12 noon on Jan. 8, an 89-year-old woman drove her Cadillac sedan into the east wall of the bowling center, in the process taking out two restroom stalls and scattering debris across the floor. According to a report in the Coloradoan newspaper, no customers were hurt, and although she was transported to a nearby hospital for evaluation, the driver also appeared unhurt.
And what about that beautiful, months-old restroom at Chipper’s?
“We’ll just have to remodel it again,” Manager Neal Davis told the Coloradoan.
