New bowling center to add 35 new jobs to Park City area
November 10, 2009
There are still 10 full-time positions available at Jupiter Bowl, Summit County’s first bowling center scheduled to open around Thanksgiving.
According to Bob Schick, facilities manager, the center will add about 35 full-time jobs to the community with the potential for 25 to 30 more part-time positions.
He encourages people to visit http://www.jupiterbowl.com /job-listings.html to apply.
The positions run the gamut from servers and cooks to lane attendants and mechanics.
Anyone with restaurant experience is welcome to apply for the former, and Schick said the machine manufacturers offer training so a good mechanical aptitude is all that is required to get behind the pins.
"We’ve been real lucky; we’ve had a great response online," he said. "We’re able to pick people with the experience that best meets our needs."

But Jupiter Bowl is not an alley, says Susan Spivey, director of marketing.
With 16 lanes (four in a separate area to be available for private parties), a restaurant, a club, a bar, billiard tables, a Wii Sports lounge and an arcade, Jupiter Bowl is a family-fun center, she said.
Located adjacent to both Redstone Plaza and the Newpark Town Center, Jupiter Bowl is about 21,500 square feet at 1090 Center Drive.
"It’s not your father’s bowling alley," she said. "It’s a family-entertainment center and a hip night spot."
She said the inexpensive, indoor entertainment offered by bowling is making a comeback in American society. Interest in leagues has been huge Jupiter Bowl will offer them.
She called it a revival or even a renaissance in popularity. The word center instead of alley is now more appropriate because of the innovations in the kinds of leisure amenities offered to appeal to all ages, at all hours of the day and night.
League play is scheduled to begin March 1 and Jupiter Bowl will be open by the end of the month, Spivey said. The reservation system is not yet up.
