On tonight’s episode of Bar Rescue, Jon Taffer and his team are in Meridian, Idaho to rescue Strikers.
Story continues below
In 2017, Andy Propst bought his iconic hometown bowling alley Meridian Lanes, which also included Strikers, a bar that operates inside the bowling alley.
Andy, who has absolutely no experience running a bar or bowling alley hired retired army veteran Roger to manage both the bowling alley and the bar. While Roger has tons of experience and knowledge of the bowling industry, he has no experience managing or running a bar. As a result of the “blind leading the blind” Andy is over $3 million in debt, and has no profit to show for his effort. Andy now faces a difficult decision to close the bowling alley and bar, unless Jon can turn things around.
During the rescue, which happened back in July 2022, Jon decided to change the name of Strikers to the Bullseye Sports Bar & Kitchen.
