Name shop: Rampfest Indoor Skate Park Location: Melbourne, Australia Years in business: 10 years open, I’ve owned it for the last 5 years (I’m the 3rd owner of the park) Employees: 8-10
I want to add a little preface to this - we aren’t a pure BMX Shop - we’re an indoor skate park mainly, with a shop attached to it. The park has been around for 10 years, I’ve owned if for the last 5. It always had a shop attached, but since my own thing is BMX, I guess the BMX Shop side just grew naturally since I’ve been there. So I think my take on local scene, retail etc is a little bit different to most.
Did you ever go to school to learn how to run a BMX business or did you just 'send it'? Rampfest: I started in business pretty small - got involved with running events for my local council,
