The Story of Round1 USA
In 2008, Round One Entertainment Japan began looking overseas to the United States for more growth and expansion., . In 2010, the company opened its first U.S. location in the City of Industry, CA. The biggest challenge for the company at that time was that “Round One Entertainment” was an unknown entity in the United States. But within a few years, the 2nd and 3rd locations in California were opened, and Round One is now rapidly expanding nationwide, across the US market.

We position ourselves differently from our competitors by offering a wide variety of activities including our Kids Play Zone(play land for the kids). Targeting a wide range of audiences from young children to the elderly, Round One continues to grow in the US market.

ABOUT ROUND1 JAPAN
Back in 1980, the owner, Masahiko Sugino, founded a company called Sugino Kosan that featured a roller skate facility with arcade games. A few years later, the facility expanded to include a bowling alley which became very popular. This company later became the first Round One store in 1993. Since then, the company quickly expanded all across Japan.
Round One successfully established its national brand in Japan, and had 112 stores by 2016, but had to close down some stores to resolve carnivalization within the country. Currently there are 105 stores in Japan, as of 2017.
Round One strives to present something new to the people, and thus innovated a Sports Challenge complex called “Spo-Cha”. There was nothing like Spo-cha entertainment available in the market, and this innovation truly epitomized what Round One embodies.
