Junction Lanes under new ownership

Junction Lanes, one of Newnan’s family entertainment venues, recently completed over $800,000 of upgrades under new owner and operator Ryan Huber.

The business was acquired by Huber in late 2015, at which time planning for the extensive renovations immediately began. Numerous cosmetic and comfort improvements include 55 new HD monitors and televisions, plus new lighting, flooring, furniture, décor and signage. Additional investment was also allocated towards the creation of a new logo and website to represent the business, and the mechanical infrastructure and equipment of the bowling amenity was also upgraded. A highly interactive scoring and customer experience technology system was also installed.
