About the Business
Highly popular, family friendly and well regarded roller skating centre within Melbourne's south west suburbs operating since 1983.
The centre provides roller skating and blading tuition for children and adults, along with public recreational skate sessions, birthday parties, services for school holiday programs and private hire offerings, plus special events.
Retail skates and accessories are sold at the centre, with lockable display cabinets, slat wall and tab hangers, via excellent relationships with industry suppliers and point of sale.
The centre is also hired during some midweek hours for sporting club training purposes, along with the centre having history and interest as location hire for film and photo shoots.
The business is popular and well frequented by established and new familes in local and surrounding areas, along with enthusiastic skaters travelling from across town and from interstate to visit. Centre is regarded by skaters as one of the most loved roller skating rinks in Australia thanks to it's unique welcoming atmosphere and presentation, featuring a high calibre sound and lighting system regarded by many in the industry as the best in any Australian roller skating rink.
Facility and plant has been progressively improved over the past 6-7 years with careful aesthetic respect to the centre's long legacy, including hardy industrial carpet squares recently laid, ongoing progression towards LED illumination, a modern rechargeable floor cleaner and a recently installed automatic coffee machine with industrial grade grinder and accessories. No equipment or plant is currently on hire purchase/terms.
An excellent investment thanks to participation in recreational roller skating well and truly on the rise across Australia and overseas. Roller skating rinks, by nature, continue to perform well even during poor economic periods, thanks to the activity's excellent value for money.
This long established business has operated since 1983 in its present location and is the only centre of its kind in the local area.
