Setting up an arcade?

11 April 2009 - 12:16 pm

I am thinking about setting up a new arcade and wondered if anybody out there had any knowledge of running one, I am thinking of having a licenced bar with a few fruit machines at back and some gaming machines for all ages at front.

My only worry is that someone told me that arcades are mostly run by criminals or gangsters because the criminal underworld like to take control of these places, He may be wrong but wondered if somebody could give me some advise whether this is a myth or a true situation of some of the arcades today, Dont want to be running an arcade not being able to make a living because of these people.

Also I hear its hard to get planning permission, Just how hard is it?
