Beginning in the summer of 2008, BBBI introduced the Kids Bowl Free® Program as a pilot program originally intended to be run in just 20 centers. As word got out the number of centers grew to 90. In year two, the number of participating centers jumped to just over 500. In 2010, the program took a leap to 890 centers and more centers keep signing on weekly. Centers choosing to be a part of the program for 2011 are smart to sign on now to maximize the program’s efficiency for next spring.
