Bernie, It has been a real pleasure to work with you and Alan at Funstruction through our process of opening a Family Entertainment Center. We could not have done it without your vast knowledge of the industry. It has saved us both time and money.

Have known Bernie Robinson for over two years now and couldn’t be more impressed with his knowledge, expertise, and professionalism working in the family entertainment industry. Bernie played a vital role in the design, training and opening up our 60,000 sq.ft. facility. We are a full indoor family entertainment center featuring: trampolines, ropes course, go-karts, laser tag, Spin Zone bumper cars, soft play, birthday party rooms, Café Eatery, and arcade.

We could not imagine going through this build out process without Bernie’s expertise and input. We have been able to not only meet our deadlines but save thousands of dollars while negotiating with our third party attraction vendors. This would not have been possible without Bernie’s personal and business relationships with these vendors.

His vast knowledge of up-fitting, design layout, marketing and advertising, pricing, back office policies, and birthday party training has made our opening far exceed our expectations within our first two months of business.

I would highly recommend any startup or existing FEC, to take a serious look at partnering with Bernie in order to give your business the very best opportunity for success. Team galaxy thanks Bernie for all his hard work and dedication to our project.

Bernie is the best! Bernie has played an important role in two of our major business ventures. The first being our transformation from a bowling center to an FEC. Bernie guided us along the way with his expertise in the fields of the family entertainment business so that we were able to make the best use of our space in the most profitable ways. With his help, we successfully transformed into an FEC offering a redemption arcade, laser tag, and spin zone bumper cars. Bernie and his partner Alan also played a vital role in the planning and opening of our new trampoline park in 2017. They were the key to relations with the companies that were best suited to meet our needs and had the insight needed to take it from start to finish. We couldn’t have done it without them!

If you have been in the FEC business as long as I have (17 years, can’t believe it), you come to realize that one of the things that matter most is partnerships.

My advice to anyone in this industry or looking to get into this industry is to surround yourself with partners who want to help you grow your business rather than just sell you on their product.

Everything in this industry messes up on a Saturday. Ask yourself if your business partnerships (suppliers, vendors, bankers, insurers, tech support, etc.) answer the phone and help you through an issue when you are in the weeds or send you to voicemail and call you back on Monday at 10 am. If they are calling you back on Monday, start looking for a new partner.

Bernie Robinson and Funstruction is a partnership that you can count on to lead you in the right direction, save you from making costly mistakes, and has the experience to implement programs and plans that can make your business a better, more profitable business. In my experience, he is a guy who takes that phone call on a Saturday and surrounds himself with people that take that call as well.
