Your Gamebox No Location Selected Select

Franchise + Concession Partnerships

Bring a Theme park in a box to your market

Electric Gamebox brings a fun, shared, social experience for friends and family to thousands of players across the US and UK.

 

In addition to our owned-operated sites, we work with select partners to bring the Gamebox experience to their markets, through Concession partnerships and Franchising.

 

Concessions partners are operators of movie-theaters, Family entertainment centers (FECs), bowling alleys or other live entertainment spaces. We work with these partners to install Gameboxes into their venues, and license EGB content for their guests to play.

 

Outside of the US, we offer franchise partnerships for experienced multi-unit franchisees to operate Electric Gamebox brand sites in their markets.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM WORKING TOGETHER

 

  1. DRIVE FOOTFALL AND REPEAT BUSINESS

    Electric Gamebox appeals to a wide and diverse demographic. Our extensive library of content appeals to a wide customer base, and is regularly updated- meaning customers return frequently to try new titles and master favourites

  2. REPURPOSING SPACE WITH EASY INSTALL

    Gameboxes require minimal space beyond the box, and can be installed in as little as 3 days, thereby increasing the revenue per foot of your site. Installation is flexible, allowing existing lobbies, escape games or other attractions to be repurposed as a Gamebox.

  3. EASY TO OPERATE WITH MINIMAL STAFF REQUIREMENTS

    A single staff member can operate a full 10-Gamebox unit, keeping operating expenses (OpEx) low. Concessionaires can typically repurpose existing staff to manage a Gamebox concession, meaning the additional revenue is virtually cost free! Gameboxes are delivered ready to be installed by approved vendors, meaning venue build-out and tech install can take as little as 3 days.

  4. REMOTE MONITORING AND SUPPORT

    Guest satisfaction is high- but we don’t rest on our laurels. Our proprietary tech platform, allows us to track performance in real time. Our proprietary algorithms detect issues automatically, maximizing the potential for a positive staff intervention. Technical solutions can be deployed remotely, and all Gamebox software support is handled by our round-the-clock support team

  5. IN IT TOGETHER

    You purchase the hardware and we provide the software and content with regular game releases, and the ability to work with licensed content partners to bring 3rd party IP to life. All with a typical ticket revenue split of 50:50. Concessionaires typically see payback periods of less than 12 months.

What is the difference between an EGB concession and a franchise site?

Our concession business model is designed to bring 2-5 Gameboxes to an existing venue, for example a Family Entertainment Centre, a movie theater or a bowling venue.

We currently have opportunities for both models in major cities globally, with franchises only available outside the US.
