I don’t usually post this kind of stuff, but wanted to share this with you. Wood Foss and his family are wonderful clients, but more importantly have become, dear friends.
“I do not attend many Bowling business events. My wife and I were planning on a major upgrade to our facility. 24 lane center, $500K type money. We attended a Brunswick presentation in Wichita, KA. and were sitting on a bus next to this little quirky guy. He was talking bowling in terms I really identified with. The guy couldn’t just shut up… But, I am a little taller quirky guy, who also loves to talk about bowling. And it went on and on. Fred offered me some very specific ideas and introduced me to some very helpful people on the Brunswick Staff.
In another month I attended the East Coast Bowl Expo. Guess who I ran into??? We wanted to truly change our center. We are a traditional style location with a healthy restaurant venue. Bowling was stagnant. We attended all the presentations about bowling and Fred Kaplowitz was truly on top of the issues that needed to be discussed.
I engaged Fred in a monthly marketing contract in October of 2008. He has provided me with help and insight in every department. We transformed our tired traditional center into an upscale traditional center of which we are very proud.
If you notice the dates 2008 to 2011. We have blown through the recession. Our results have been very satisfactory. We are growing our league play! Fred kept nurturing our league business and thank God, we did not fall into the open play boutique trap.
Fred has been our partner or perhaps mentor is a better word. He feeds us, but more importantly, listens to us and adjusts to our market. He has the contacts, knowledge and ideas from all over the bowling universe. He runs his own center and knows the business inside and out.
Hire this man, you will benefit from his ideas and enjoy his company.”
