“We’re overwhelmed with the excitement and enthusiasm of the DeKalb County community for our unique brand of family entertainment,”
With an investment of more than $2.3 million and addition of more than 120+ jobs to the DeKalb County community, Stars and Strikes co-founder/owner Chris Albano is certain that DeKalb County is the ideal location to grow this popular family-friendly, community-centered concept. “The job fair we hosted a few weeks ago brought out thousands of amazingly talented and excited members who hoped to join the Stars and Strikes team. We are thrilled to bring such a great concept of fun family-centered entertainment not only to families in Stone Mountain and Tucker but also businesses looking for an affordable and fun corporate venue for business meetings and private parties in metro-Atlanta,”
Families were first introduced to the unique brand of family fun and entertainment in July 2005 when the first Stars and Strikes location opened in Forsyth County in Cumming, GA. Two additional locations of the popular family and community-centered concept quickly followed with the opening of Stars and Strikes in Gwinnett County in Dacula, GA followed by the third Stars and Strikes location that opened in Paulding County in Dallas, GA.
Located two miles outside the Perimeter, off I-285 at Hwy 78/Mountain Industrial Boulevard, this exciting, new 50,000 square-foot virtual indoor playground features: (24) state-of-the-
Additionally, the new Center includes a 2,500 square-foot corporate events/meeting room facility with video projectors, wi-fi, an in-house catering staff, full-time chef, full-service restaurant/bar and private birthday party rooms featuring the best children’s birthday parties in Atlanta.
Each Stars and Strikes Family Entertainment Center is locally owned and operated and employs hundreds of dedicated employees across the metro Atlanta area. The concept was founded by Alpharetta neighbors, Chris Albano and Jack Canouse, who recognized that many communities lacked a safe, family-friendly entertainment destination.
From the very beginning, the company’s core mission centered on offering customers much more than ‘just a bowling alley’. With a philosophy centered on fun, and a deep commitment to provide exceptional customer service, cleanliness and safety for their customers, Stars and Strikes has truly redefined the way families, churches, schools, and groups of all types enjoy quality time together. It’s an affordable, fun, family-centric atmosphere with great entertainment and amazing food, an outcome greatly appreciated by the groups the centers serve.
Stars and Strikes is committed to giving back to the communities they serve. The company hosts over 25 fundraising events per year at each of their facilities. Stars and Strikes employees are directly involved in fundraising and donate their time to an annual Christmas party held for foster children in each market.
“One of the most exciting aspects of this newest Stars and Strikes location opening in Stone Mountain/Tucker this summer is our 2,500 square-foot corporate event room that can accommodate large groups and meetings or corporate audiences of up to 250+ people,” Albano added. “This private meeting space is ideal for team-building workshops, off-site corporate meetings and large banquets. Once business is done, the fun begins. We offer our corporate customers the unique opportunity to combine work and play with an emphasis on exceptional food, fun and service. Our staff will coordinate all activities, teambuilding competitions and food service.”
