House of Play has assisted numerous clients over a 20 year period to establish successful indoor play centres. The fundamental difference between House of Play and other indoor play suppliers is that we don’t just supply product but we can guide you through the whole process using the direct experience gained from setting up Astrabound Play Centre, a 13500 sq ft trading showcase play centre owned and operated by House of Play.
The specialist Team at House of Play will help you through the initial stages of your project guiding you towards a ‘live’ site. The 2 key considerations when assessing feasibility are finding the correct building in the correct location and assessing the commercial viability of the project together with raising the necessary finance.
The Building... Using in-house specialists we can advise you on the suitability of your chosen building, assess the catchment, negotiate terms with the landlord / agent and draft change of use documentation to submit through to the local planning authority to obtain the correct usage for the building. These support services are free of charge.
Commercial viability and finance... Using in-house specialists we can assist you in determining the commercial viability of your chosen location, understanding visitor ratios, capital and operational costs associated with the project and providing you with the tools to predict profitability, breakeven points and return on investment. Furthermore, we can assist you in the preparation of a comprehensive business plan to submit through to potential lenders. We have access to funders who can advise within 24 hours on the level of funding they could offer the project. These support services are free of charge.
Once the building has been secured and the finance obtained, the design and project management Teams at House of Play will assist you in designing and delivering your project with our bespoke design package and project management service to ensure successful delivery of the project. These support services are free of charge.
Operating a play centre
The final piece of the jigsaw relates to marketing the new play facility and developing operational procedures that certify high customer service levels from the day the play facility opens. The specialist Team at Astrabound Play Centre, the trading play centre owned and operated by House of Play, will guide you through all best practice procedures, delivering operations manuals and offering comprehensive site training. These support services are free of charge.
