Alexandria, Virginia-based Bowl America will be acquired by New York-based Bowlero Corp., the largest operator of bowling alleys in North America, for an undisclosed sum. The acquisition includes Bowl America’s 17 locations in Virginia, Maryland, and Florida, nine of which are in the D.C. metro area. According to wtop.com, "The acquisition is still subject to shareholder approval. Bowl America has a long history in D.C.

It has more than $24 million in annual revenue and 500 employees." As per wtop.com, "Bowlero Corp. operates more than 300 bowling centers across North America under its namesake, as well as Bowlmore Lanes and AMF. It acquired Richmond, Viriginia-based AMF in 2013 after AMF filed for bankruptcy. In 2019, the company acquired the Professional Bowlers Association."
