Make it light (in color scheme) and bright. Keep it clean. Offer some menu options and some games for adults.
Chris Thrash did everything right and it still couldn't turn a profit.

They can’t really because CEC owns the SPP name. Showbiz Pizza Zone got shut down for that reason.

From what I heard, SPZ was very makeshift, small, and didn't have that many games, let alone games that were modern at the time. I'd say that was what really messed things up.

CEC doesn't own the SHowBiz Pizza Place name anymore. They lead their trademark on it expire.

Also, that isn't what happened with SPZ. SPZ closed because Chris was losing money.

No animatronics and lot's of dancing showgirls and booze.

Honestly, any concept with animatronics is completely irrelevant outside of the theme park industry these days.

Your main selling point should not be the animatronic's if your going the Arcade route flat fee no tokens no quarters every game that does not give a prize "Such as Claw Machine" free play, you want to have recognizable games to advertise with like Donkey Kong, The first 2 Pac-man games, Tron and Dig Dug and then have filler games you may also advertise with such as Donkey Kong 3, Congo Bongo, M.A.C.H. 3 and Super Pac-man. If your going to be a restaurant as well no store bought or pre-made pizza's freshly baked pizza's if your not going to be a restaurant try to get a deal with a pizza place were they will deliver it to your establishment for a fee under the price the sell it at there place so both party's can make money

I believe showbiz pizza zone failed was because they used tokens arcade games were built on a concept were a handful of quarters gets you 20 to 30 minutes with newer machines making even 10 minutes a possibility no one want's to do that look at bigger arcades that don't use tokens and have a flat fee they succeed and ones that use tokens do other things to keep it going such as games on location is a barcade or part of a bigger establishment when you tell someone for 10 dollars you can play all you want from opening to closing there hooked.

Funfact, were getting 1 if not 2 RAE locations in KC, and I may take the full time tech job offered to me. You cant use the showbiz name. However the rockafire name can be used with aarons permission. Opening a business costs a fortune.

Not only that but every arcade in the Phenix City, AL Area was the same time frame away though I don't think CEC effect it that much since CEC has more Dave and buster type redemption games were as Showbiz Pizza zone had more 90s games like House of the Dead. DDR and Hydro Thunder
