An Emerging Growth Pachinko Operator
Kinbasha Gaming International, Inc. is committed to creating a major pachinko organization with diversified services through a targeted rollout and acquisition strategy in Japan’s major metropolitan areas, targeting Tokyo.
The company’s stores are strategically located in areas that are convenient and accessible to local residents. Kinbasha’s locations are known by its customers to be clean, attractive and comfortable. The primary driver for growth in the past has been the successful addition of new stores and enhancements to the operational efficiency of existing locations.
Unlike stores operated by smaller “mom-and-pop” operators, Kinbasha’s facilities are upper scale, featuring a selection of the latest pachinko and pachislo machines at each center. Six of the stores have cafes located on the premises, and three of the stores have daycare services on site. Kinbasha’s largest store has 520 pachinko machines, and the smallest store has 164 pachinko machines.
Kinbasha’s pachinko parlors are highly customer-oriented, many with full cocktail options, food service and other amenities available. Across its locations, Kinbasha has over 225 full time employees and 700 part time employees catering to its customers every need and supplying critical back-office support.
To achieve Kinbasha’s plans for future growth, management intends to obtain additional capital to build out and acquire additional Pachinko parlor stores within the Tokyo Metropolitan Area, and begin to shift the company’s strong branding, successful operations teams and proprietary gaming analytics technology to areas where Pachinko stores are up to three times more profitable.
