Black Detroit Entrepreneur Launches First-Ever Mobile Bowling Alley
There’s a new mobile bowling alley making its way through Detroit that is the first of its kind. Terence Jackson, Jr, has converted a 53-foot semi-truck into a bowling alley on wheels that is the perfect venue for parties, corporate events, small gatherings, and more.
Jackson said he was inspired to create Luxury Strike Bowling by companies such as Amazon, Grub Hub, and Uber, all making shopping, eating and traveling easily accessible by using a mobile device.
“These companies made life easier for people and created economic growth worldwide, and I wanted in,” Jackson told The Detroit News.
Luxury Strike Bowling will look a little different than a traditional bowling alley. There will be two automatic bowling lanes, but the lanes are shorter, and the bowling balls are smaller, weighing only 3 pounds.
The bowling alley is temperature-controlled, and features neon lighting, an 80-inch theater screen, a sky lounge, and a state-of-the-art sound system that guests can connect to through Bluetooth.
The alley, which includes a loft, can accommodate up to 15 people.
For entrepreneurs trying to turn their dreams into reality, Jackson has some advice.
“Entrepreneurship runs the world,” he said. “Focus, commit and continue discipline […] Don’t be a product of your environment, and make your environment a product of your greatness.”
