September 26, 2014 // Franchising.com // TAMPA, Fla. – As hard as it may be to believe, there was once a time when video games were not life-like and an integral part of our lives and of the popular culture. Once upon a time, video games were a solitary pastime played on a box in the corner of a basement or at a dark, dingy arcade. These days, 24-foot mobile gaming theaters are becoming the norm and Mobile Gaming Revolution is leading the charge.
With two franchises and one company-owned location already amping up parties throughout Tampa Bay and Seattle, Mobile Gaming Revolution recently announced plans to bring its self-contained video gaming utopias to markets all across the country. Company executives plan to open 3-5 new locations by the end of 2014 and have as many as 20 total locations by the end of 2015.
The video gaming industry is currently one of the fastest growing sectors in the U.S. economy. According to data released by The NPD Group, the more than 181 million Americans (59%) who play video games spent more than $21 billion on games, hardware and accessories in 2013 and the industry is projected to continue growing by approximately five percent annually through 2015.
"From broader audiences to the death of arcades, the face of gaming has seen enormous change. In barely more than a generation, video games have transformed from a diversion for the few into a favorite pastime enjoyed by men and women of all ages, and millions worldwide who share their game play experiences with friends and family," said Mobile Gaming Revolution founder Lee Bekhor. "We've driven the evolution of games into new territory with a gamer's paradise on wheels that is sure to provide an unforgettable experience for all of our guests."
Mobile Gaming Revolution is well on its way to becoming the nation's premier mobile entertainment company, bringing a gaming super-station to your doorstep. The self-contained video gaming utopias can accommodate up to 28 people and come complete with today's hottest consoles – including fully networked XBOX Ones to Playstation4s and multi-player ready Wii systems – all in a fully equipped, temperature controlled mobile video gaming theater. From Mario to Just Dance 4, games are played on high definition flat screen TVs, all while nestling your rump in the comfiest seating around. Mobile Gaming Revolution also offers Laser Tag and Bumper Balls to take any even to the next level.
"Whether you're entertaining a dozen people or hundreds, our thrilling on-location gaming experience is sure to blow anything else out of the water," said Bekhor. "And for franchisees, we present the most competitive offering in the market."
With the lowest franchise fee in the industry ($19,500), Mobile Gaming Revolution offers the most competitive equipment pricing, which includes a protected, qualified territory that includes a population of 225,000 people. In addition, Mobile Gaming Revolution is the only concept in the industry that charges franchisees a flat royalty fee of $1,300 per month. This royalty includes everything from technology and brand development fees to social media management and booking and reservation services, among others.
Headquartered in Tampa, Florida, Mobile Gaming Revolution is rapidly becoming the nation's premier mobile entertainment companies with its fully equipped, temperature controlled mobile video gaming theaters that are brought right to your doorstep. Founded in 2011 and franchising since 2013, Mobile Gaming Revolution currently has three locations open and operating in two states and plans to expand its national footprint via franchising over the next several years.
