Hollywood Bowl joins FTSE250

8th March 2024 - Hollywood Bowl Group plc, the UK and Canada's largest ten-pin bowling operator, is delighted to announce it has joined the FTSE250 as it continues to bring families together for fun, excellent value for money experiences. 

The Group floated on the London Stock Exchange in 2016 and has achieved continued success over the years despite the many external challenges faced by the sector. This demonstrates the strength of the company’s customer offer, which is focused on delivering high-quality experiences at an affordable price point.  

The Group currently has 71 centres in the UK and 11 centres in Canada. The company has strong growth ambitions and plans to add an average of five new centres each year, taking advantage of Canada’s highly fragmented and under-invested market.

Hollywood Bowl’s people are key to its success and the company’s high-performance and purpose-led culture is instrumental to its strong performance.

Stephen Burns, Chief Executive of Hollywood Bowl Group, commented:

“I am extremely proud that Hollywood Bowl will be joining the FTSE250 which reflects the success of our customer-focused strategy. I am grateful to all our team members for their continued hard work and dedication, providing our customers with outstanding service every day.

We are continuing to invest and innovate, seizing the considerable expansion opportunity ahead. Our strong balance sheet and highly cash generative business model leaves us well-positioned to execute our growth strategy as consumers continue to seek out inclusive, sociable leisure experiences”.
