TRACING THE RISE OF FECs IN INDIA!!!
 
India has seen an increase in the popularity of FECs over the last decade. From small towns to metros all have thriving FECs. People are very happy with them because they offer entertainment to the whole family under one roof.
 
FEC's have been an integral part of the Amusement & Leisure Industry.
 
The first FECs opened in India almost 14 years ago, in the mid 90s. They were essentially game parlours. In the last five years, with the advent of the malls that mushroomed across the country, Family Entertainment Centers have shown remarkable growth. Today every mall developer wants to have an FEC as part of the mall. The new developers have begun to plan bigger spaces in their malls and consider FEC as an USP of their malls.

FEC's are getting more popular as they have multiple attractions. Convenience is a key factor in the success of FECs. Conveniently accesible to the community, pocket of customers and a family hangout makes it a trendy choice.
 
FECs also serve host to private celebrations on their premises, provide interactive games giving an opportunity for families to bond together. Redemption merchandise gives value takeaways. 
 
With innovative ideas and friendly customer approach FEC's are soon going to be a retreat place to relax and enjoy.
