a friend of mine, called and asked me if i knew how to go about owning / opening a poolhall. i suggested to him, to talk to a few of the owners we know here at the local poolhall and that i would look on the internet for him, so i figured that i'd bring this to you guys and see if any has any input,direction,advice...

would all be helpfull.
Thanx.

Muujhad,
One of the very first steps is to go to your local library and check out the local ordinances covering poolhalls or similar type business's ( liq laws, hours of operation etc.) and see if your community has any special hoops to jump through. One can save themselves a bunch of missteps in the very beginning of the process if you know the laws covering this type of business.....after that the nightmare begins......LOL... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Also check with the businesses surrounding where the ph would be. I had a friend who wanted to put one in a strip mall, and several tenants threatened to pull out if they opened. The ph opened at another location and are barely surviving. Good Luck!

The BCA has a manual on how to open and operate a pool room. Info is very good and worth reading by anyone even considering such a venture.

I think Blackjack Sapolis owns at least 1, maybe he can help you out.

Perhaps the "Proprietor's Manual" is what was referred to:

http://www.bcastore.com/product_info.php?products_id=32

Not cheap at $89.95. Or you could get their "New Room Package" deal:

BCA Proprietorís Manual Billiards: A Sport Whose Time Has Come Video BCA Media Kit Profile of a Billiard Room Survey Purchased separately, these items would cost $75.80. Your cost...only $99.95. Figure that one out.
