Dawayne Murdock and Andy Bartholomy finalizing the transaction.

Midland Bowl, open since the 1970’s, has been on the verge of closing its doors to the public and to the 25 employees working there. Andy Bartholomy stepped in and made sure that wasn’t going to happen. He’s looking forward to rejuvenating Midland Bowl with his expertise in the family entertainment industry.

Along with Dawayne Murdock, the CBI+Team office in Fort Smith helped complete this sale. Other offices are also located in Lowell, Arkansas; Duluth, Minnesota; Springfield, Missouri; and Joplin, Missouri. Carl Grimes founded the Confidential Business Intermediary Team and its mission statement, “to help people confidentially sell and buy businesses to secure their financial future.”
