My name is Dan Mowery and I’m the 3rd generation owner of Midway Bowling. Midway has been in the Mowery family since 1956. It was originally a 16 lane establishment. My grandfather, Donn Mowery, added an additional 20 lanes, a bar, and a skating rink over the next 30 years. It’s been my vision since the time of acquisition to make Midway the coolest bar and entertainment venue within the Carlisle community.
The mission at Midway is to create a fun, inviting, and entertaining destination for people of all ages. But to accomplish this task, we need your help! Below we've outlined our plans for the new renovation, and what your support will help bring to life. Thanks again and remember to "Create fun!"
What, you thought we'd forget about the exterior? Not a chance! We've selected the lovely and talented artist Aron Rook to bring our brick walls to life. The mural will cover the white and black area of the bricks on the entire side of the building along with the small fenced area around the kitchen entrance. Want a sneak peak as to what you might expect? Check out her work below!
We want our customers to be as comfortable as possible! So we've decided to completely redesign our lane seating areas. Think comfy, couch-like seating and nice large tables to hold your food and drinks.
What's bowling without some amazing food and drinks to go along with it? The main goal of the kitchen renovation is more space. The original kitchen was designed for selling a few hamburgers and hotdogs. Now that we are putting out a delicious, full menu, it’s getting cramped. With food sales sky rocketing we need to expand to have more room so staff in the kitchen can give you all the best food experience.
Our vision for Midway's road sign is to have it pop with new life, channeling vintage vibes. We plan to have the MIDWAY letters painted a deep red to match the M logo in the top left. We'll give the light blue structure poles fresh white paint. Finally we'll add the additional "Sparetime Lounge" to advertise one of the greatest features of Midway Bowling Center. Keep in mind that the After picture is just a rough sketch at the moment, but we can assure you we see it in our mind and it's going to look magnificent!
Nothing is worse than driving around in circles trying to find a parking space. Or a parking lot with potholes galore, for that matter. That's why a portion of the funds raised will be used to repair the areas of our parking lot that need it the most. We want our loyal, bowling loving customers to have a positive experience from the moment they arrive on our property.
Have you ever dreamed of making your mark on history and being forever immortalized? Let Midway help you get there! Sponsors will be given the chance to personalize sections of 1, 4, or 8 bricks on the exterior on the center.
Along with the bricks, we're offering Lane Picture space for sponsors who want to garner more exposure. With 40,000 yearly views, sponsors can rest assured that the investment will help yield new customers and more sales.
