Nominated for: BEST Bowling
In August of 1961 my parents, Peter and Rosalie Scimone opened Roseland Lanes in Oakwood Village, Ohio (see map).
This land, once a farm, was built over the years by Pete, into a 50 lane family recreation center. During these many years of business the Scimone philosophy has remained the same: to treat our customers so they are "only a stranger but once." This means a friendly welcome, prompt and courteous service, a clean atmosphere and quality equipment for which we are proud.
This philosophy has been our trademark to our loyal league bowlers as well as to our many spectators and open bowlers. Even in retirement, all business operations and promotions, are overseen by the watchful eye of my parents. With the help of their family they boast that their center provides the most consistent quality service for the price anywhere. All additions and remodeling was done by my dad Pete over the 40 + years. He named the bowling center after our mom, Rosalie. The Snack Bar, “Pete’s Café & Grille” and the Pizzeria, “Papa Pete’s Pizza” and the Lounge, “Pete’ Pub” was named after Pete for his love for food and his talented craftsmanship. What a legend over the years!
