January Networking Event
A Detroit Success Story
Owner, Fowling Warehouse
MSED invites members and guests to join us for an informative and fun event about inventing a sport, creating a business, building a brand, and realizing a dream.
In 2001, the errant pass of a football into some bowling pins gave Chris Hutt the idea for a game. The game became a sport. The sport became an obsession. The obsession fueled a dream – to establish a place he could share his love of “Fowling” with Metro Detroit – and beyond. The dream became a reality in 2014, with the opening of the Fowling Warehouse, a 34,000-square-foot Fowling Warehouse in a Hamtramck industrial park. Complete with 20 lanes, a full bar, big-screen TVs and a small stage for bands.
Fowling – a simple game where you throw footballs at bowling pins – has become a smashing success. Thousands of “fowlers” come every week to play at the Fowling Warehouse and share Chris’ passion for the sport he created. Chris and the Fowling Warehouse have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, TIME Magazine, on ESPN, and in media outlets around the world. A second location in Grand Rapids opened in December, and Chris’ plans for the sport continue to grow.
What’s next for fowling? How did this seemingly overnight success come to be? What about competition and brand building? Come join fellow MSED members and guests for an afternoon and evening of informative discussion, networking, and FOWLING!!!
