“Sending articles that have nothing to do with our association or our rink owners wastes time because we have to sort through the emails. We’re planning on launching our new website this year, as well as new columns on operating a small business. We’re planning the following areas of discussion in the next year, so if you have experience with any of these areas we would love to hear from you: Marketing/Birthday parties in roller skating rinks; How to use licensed characters in your family entertainment center; Vending and coin-op; Roller skating flooring; How to work on your business; Concessions; Pricing; Point of sale systems; Payroll; Fraud and theft; Human resources; Teen/child issues today; Summer camps at family entertainment centers; Cutting edge revenue streams; Employee retention; Cashless systems; Advertising ROI; Generating media events for the small business owner; And much more!”
