Cumming, GA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/01/2016 --Stars and Strikes announces the opening of a new bowling and family entertainment center in Columbus, GA. Open since June 2016, the location is their ninth location.

The $7 million center facility features a full-service bar that is the "hub of the facility," co-owner, Chris Albano said, "and it services the whole facility. People can come and watch the football games there. We have the NFL Ticket." They offer full service liquor, draft beer, and bottle beer.

Albano discussed their move to Columbus by saying, "We look for markets that have young families. Columbus has really vibrant youth sports programs. That's our niche. We do a great job with birthday parties, sports team parties, any kind of youth event. It's certainly not all we do, but it's a big piece of it because we feel if we connect with families and children, we're successful when it's all said and done."

The Columbus bowling location features the company's 7/10 Grille Restaurant, classic American grill food with a chef's twist. The menu includes a variety of appetizers, salads, gourmet burgers, specialty pizzas, wings that feature a wing-of-month, sandwiches, wraps, and healthy entrees.
