Bowling alleys are known for friendly competition, family gatherings, birthday parties, and more. They’re perfect places for everyone to have fun–even those who aren’t exactly professionals can try their hand at a game! However, when you consider how many germs are transferred throughout the alley, the idea of a bowling alley restroom might cause someone to second-guess your facility. When customers experience unsanitary conditions, they aren’t likely to return, which loses you business and reputation. So, what’s the solution? Let’s go over the importance of keeping your bowling alley restroom clean and sanitary at all times.
High Rate of Germ Transfer
Because a bowling alley requires hands-on interaction, the risk for exposure to bacteria significantly increases. It’s not likely that your customers are sanitizing each individual ball before they use it. Whatever germs are on the equipment, from rented shoes to score boards, end up in the restroom. And, when the restroom is unsanitized, it can end up affecting the entire bowling alley.
Why would anyone return to a facility that is unsanitary? A dirty restroom indicates quite a few problems, including a lack of commitment. Customers will believe you don’t really care about your business, and they’ll walk away with a tainted impression. However, on the flip side, a clean restroom can build trust and confidence. When a customer walks into a sanitized restroom, they’ll immediately feel at ease–and this is a big deal when they’re in a bowling alley, knowing so many germs have the potential to end up in the restroom.
Bowling alleys usually rely on the surrounding community for business. The local bowling alley is going to draw a very specific customer base within a certain radius–so, a bad reputation will spread quickly. As discussed, the easiest way for a customer to decide that a bowling alley is unsanitary is an unsanitary restroom. With such a localized customer base, this opinion can spread at a rapid speed, which will discourage customers from either returning or visiting your bowling alley for the first time.
