The Bickford family started in the bowling business with the purchase of Broadway Lanes in 1994. In twenty years John, Sean and Brandon Bickford have prided themselves on running a clean family friendly establishment.
In Late August 2014 The Bickford's purchased Granville Recreation Center from the Scott Family. Upon purchasing the center The Bickford's went right to work cleaning and modernizing the center.
Under the new name Slate Valley Lanes The Bickford's hope to establish themselves in the community of Granville as the place to go for clean family friendly entertainment.
