Small Town Sports Bars Serve as Gathering Spots for People of All Ages

The days are long, the nights are short, and this is the perfect time of the year to start on your new adventure.

Opening a sports bar has always been an idea in the back of your head, but you never really had the chance in the past to give it go. Now that all four of your kids are out of the house and three are out of college, you have decided to quit your job at the roofing company and work toward achieving this goal. After months of waiting for the space that you want to be available, on the longest day of summer you were able to take possession.

With the longest days of the year providing as much energy as daylight, you have working late in to the night to transform this shell of a space into the sports bar of your dreams. You want to be able to host both little league teams and their parents after weekend tournaments, as well as the football crowds that love to gather to watch away games. With the space divided into two pretty equal parts, you are confident that you will always be able to serve a couple of different groups at once. With no parties or gatherings scheduled, you will be able to have a huge space that is big enough to host locals who are out for a night on the town, but you can also alter the space so that you can handle wedding receptions and other special events.

Sports Bars, Restaurants, and Other Gathering Spaces Serve a Number of Purposes

Downtown sports bars that serve the best burgers as well as offer a wide range of craft beers are popular in big cities, but the fact of the matter is there are lots of small towns that do not have a bar that is family friendly. By opening a bigger space and offer a tasty menu of chicken strops, cheeseburgers, and loads of appetizers, there is a real market for gathering spots in many small towns across the country.
The latest marketing research shows that Americans spend nearly 13% of their annual income on food. Small towns that do not have an option for family meals, as well as evening gathering spots for a drink are missing out on revenue that can benefit the entire community. In the U.S. there are more than one million restaurant locations, employing as many as 14.7 million people, but there are still many parts of the country that are underserved. If the locals are driving an hour away to go watch the game and spend their money in someone else’s town, maybe it is time someone takes the opportunity to open a new space before the dog days of summer come to an end.
