“Wow! We haven’t been here in a while, everything looks great!” People are giving us a lot of compliments about our new look. We’ve been thoughtful in creating an inviting atmosphere for folks to relax and spend time with friends by updating our gathering spaces and expanding our drink and menu selections. Standardization of our business operations as well as team training and development have also been key areas of focus for us over the past few months. What’s next? We’ll be finishing up the roof and exterior lighting this fall and working on our new back bar over the winter so that were ready for the return of warmer weather.
Our leagues are in full swing and we host approximately 150 bowlers each week. Our HOUSE is special, and we love that we can preserve a little local history and folks are able to enjoy a unique experience. There is a buzz of excitement on league night, for both the bowlers and those who come to sit at the bar and watch. This season we have sponsored a couple of tournament teams who plan to compete at various events in the area. The Women’s State Tournament will be held in Muskegon this winter and our Wednesday night Bowlerettes will be there! At the West Michigan USBC awards banquet this summer Pincrest was well represented with several of our house rollers bringing home some serious hardware in both team events and individual high scores. We’re a small HOUSE with a big presence!
Contribution to our community is important to us and we believe that business plays an important role in our local neighborhood. This year our customers have raised over $3K for the Fruitport Regulator Fund, which supports Veterans and local community needs. This is in addition to the funds generated during our annual Fruitport Regulator motorcycle run held on Memorial Day weekend. Pincrest business donations this year total over $3K and include local organizations such as Fruitport Public Schools, Fruitport Lions Club, Fruitport Conservation Club, Waves of Hope, Alzheimer’s foundation, WMUSBC, GH Offshore Challenge, and we’re not finished yet! By keeping our efforts community focused, we are hoping to make an impact to everyone we meet in some way.
People ask, “Are you guys having fun?” Absolutely! And we hope our guests are too! We’re excited to have several music events coming up and winter dart leagues are forming now. Stop in, call or check out our facebook page for event details. A special thank you to our friends and family who are helping us to realize the vision for Pincrest – we are grateful for their efforts and support. This is truly a business built by friends.
As always, hope to see you at the corner! Aimee & Tom
